THIS year has rarely seen any satisfying horror films grace our screens, but for those who are longing for that scare you can now thank acclaimed and visionary director Guillermo del Toro for his latest gothic tale, Crimson Peak.

It has been over two years since we last saw any film by “Guillermo’, his last was Pacific-Rim (2013) which saw mixed reviews and success. This time he goes back to his routes, bringing his highly anticipated horror story that is not for the light hearted.

This story follows Edith in a series of unfortunate events, when her heart is stolen by a seductive stranger, she is swept away to a house atop a mountain of blood-red clay: a place filled with secrets that will haunt her forever. Between desire and darkness, between mystery and madness, lies the truth behind Crimson Peak.  


If you haven’t seen the trailer, you must watch it now. It’s a beautiful mix of Victorian horror and gothic romance, which sets it aside from many other horror films in recent years. Remember this is the man behind the incredible Pans Labyrinth (2006), and horror stories like Mama (2013), Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (2010) and The Orphanage (2007), so you can expect some decent scares and lots of gore.

The cast is amazing, in the lead there is Mia Wasikowska as Edith, Tom Hiddleston as Thomas Sharpe, Jessica Chastain as Lucille Sharpe and Charlie Hunnam as Dr. Alan McMichael. Doug Jones who is a regular stop-motion actor with “Guillermo’ also makes an appearance too.

I would highly recommend this beautiful, dark and twisted romantic horror story. The cast is incredible, the visuals are beautiful and it’s Guillermo del Toro, what more can I say.
