Default Crimson Peak (2015) - Del Toro

Guillermo del Toro is heading back to his Gothic mystery horror stories for his next film, and it's sounding great.

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.
Del Toro called the film "a very set-oriented, classical but at the same time modern take on the ghost story" that would allow him to play with the genre's conventions while subverting its rules. Del Toro called the film a "ghost story and gothic romance" which attempts to "subvert the rules" of the genres. He stated, "I think people are getting used to horror subjects done as found footage or B-value budgets. I wanted this to feel like a throwback."

Del Toro wanted the film to honor the "grand dames" of the haunted house genre, namely Robert Wise's The Haunting and Jack Clayton's The Innocents. The director intended to make a large-scale horror film in the tradition of those he grew up watching, such as The Omen, The Exorcist, and The Shining. He cited the latter as "another Mount Everest of the haunted house movie", praising the high production value and Stanley Kubrick's control over the large sets.
I think it sounds great, always keen for some more Del Toro! Shooting (I think) starts up 10th of Feb.
