Crimson Peak is a co-production with Universal Pictures, and it is described as a haunting gothic horror story directed by the master of dark fairy tales, Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pacific Rim), written by del Toro and Matthew Robbins and starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam.
According to Crimson Peak’s official synopsis, it picks up following the aftermath of a family tragedy, with an aspiring author torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers.
Some more details have since surfaced however, revealing that, “A young woman (Wasikowska) is swept off by her feet by a charismatic suitor (Hiddleston) and taken back to his ancestral home. There she finds more than she bargained for, including a jealous sister (Chastain) and more than a few skeletons in the closet.”
