Guillermo del Toro’s Haunted House Comes Alive in New CRIMSON PEAK Images Featuring Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska

     January 2, 2015


It’s been about two weeks since we got that very first shot of Jessica Chastain in Crimson Peak and now it’s time to get a look at her co-stars, Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska.  According to the description that accompanied the images, Wasikowska leads as a young woman who falls for Hiddleston’s character.  He takes her back to his home and that’s where she encounters his jealous sister (Chastain) and uncovers “more than a few skeletons in the closet.”

Hit the jump to check out those new Crimson Peak images as well as some additional details on the plot of the film.  Crimson Peak opens in regular theaters and IMAX on October 16th, and also stars Charlie Hunnam.

We do have an official synopsis for the film, but this one from Empire Magazine (via Torrilla) offers a few more details:

“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.”

I never thought I’d say this, but Hiddleston actually isn’t the most eye-catching thing in the images below.  Just look at that house!  I happened to have been on set as well when Steve got to check it out and the place was downright incredible, but it’s actually even more striking with the fire burning and the appropriate coloring.  The house really does come alive in these shots, so perhaps Guillermo del Toro really can pull this whole breathing and bleeding thing off.



Here’s the official synopsis for Crimson Peak:

Legendary Pictures’ CRIMSON PEAK, a co-production with Universal Pictures, is a haunting gothic horror story directed by the master of dark fairy tales, Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy series, Pacific Rim), written by del Toro and Matthew Robbins and starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam.  In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is 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.  Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, del Toro and Callum Greene produce, and Jillian Share executive produces.
