When her heart is stolen by a seductive stranger, a young woman 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. From the imagination of director Guillermo del Toro comes a gothic romance starring Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, Jane Eyre), two-time Academy Award® nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Mama), Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, Thor series) and Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, FX's Sons of Anarchy). In Crimson Peak, they will discover the power that love has to make monsters of us all. As the writer and director of such modern classics as The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth and the producer of such terrifying thrillers as The Orphanage and Mama, del Toro delivers a unique blend of psychological terror and operatic beauty that has propelled horror into the elevated realm of dark fairytales. With his new film, this powerful force of imagination makes a grand return to the genre he helped define. Here, del Toro creates an elevated romance with a level of cinematic artistry that harkens back to the genre's greatest triumphs, while delivering spectacular visuals, rich characters, emotive performances, and a story that grips you to the bitter end. Set in the year 1901, Crimson Peak is given a stylized, contemporary gothic feel through del Toro's mesmeric visual style. Crimson Peak is in theaters and IMAX on October 16.
