A return to horror for Guillermo Del Toro is probably some of the most exciting stuff going on this year and with this first trailer for Crimson Peak we can see he’s back in form with stunningly creepy visuals. If the director and genre didn’t grab you the cast alone should, with Jessica Chastain and Tom Hiddleston doing their utmost to creep us out and Mia Wasikowska nailing the fragile waif.
The real questions is if the film will actually be his ultimate masterpiece. That’s some especially strong hyperbole for a film no one has seen and that took some haggling to get off the ground. Not only did this guy give us the likes of Pan’s Labyrinth, but he’s still got a lengthy career in front of him to construct an “ultimate masterpiece.” I realize it’s just marketing jargon, but come on.
