Stephen King has nothing but praise for Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak
In yet another example of why it’s great to be a celebrity, author Stephen King and his son Joe Hill managed to get themselves a screening of Guillermo del Toro’s latest work, CRIMSON PEAK. The pair seemed quite taken with the film and took to Twitter to make us all jealous.
Remember that list I tweeted the other day, the 13 most beautiful horror films. CRIMSON PEAK is the most beautiful of all.— Joe Hill (@joe_hill) March 15, 2015
CRIMSON PEAK is Del Toro's blood-soaked AGE OF INNOCENCE, a gloriously sick waltz through Daphne Du Maurier territory.— Joe Hill (@joe_hill) March 15, 2015
Was treated to a screening of Guillermo del Toro's new movie, CRIMSON PEAK, this weekend. Gorgeous and just fucking terrifying.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) March 16, 2015
CRIMSON PEAK electrified me in the same way Sam Rami's EVIL DEAD electrified me when I saw it for the first time way back in the day.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) March 16, 2015
While I found Guillermo's last film, PACIFIC RIM, to be hugely entertaining (especially on the big screen) I wasn’t as impressed with it as I hoped I would be. Guillermo’s return to gothic horror on the other hand, has me very excited; probably more so than is socially acceptable. I should really stop writing these articles in public.
The production and cast seem top notch and if the beautiful atmosphere of dread prevalent throughout the trailer is any indication, we could very well be looking at one of the best films of the year. Fingers crossed.
