A handful of character posters have arrived for Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming fantasy horror Crimson Peak and they are lusciously dark. They are smothered with Del Toro’s touch and laced with gothic elegance, wonderfully embodying the eerie and macabre tone I imagine the film will be filled with. They feature actors Charlie Hunnam, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Tom Hiddleston, each being represented by a different object; I will leave you to delve in to what each one signifies.
After she is swept off her feet by a seductive and alluring man, Edith is taken to her newly wedded husband’s gothic manor lying on top of a blood-coloured mountain. Deadly secrets line the walls of soul mate’s prison, yet through lust and lies, Edith must face the dormant demons and find out the truth.
Crimson Peak will be released on October 16th 2015.
