“Now that you’re there, where everything is known - tell me:
What else lived in that house besides us?” ― Anna Akhmatova
Edith Cushing seeks to escape torment from the ghosts of her traumatic childhood. She is married to the handsome and charming Sir Thomas Sharpe, and is then spirited away to his home, a sprawling Gothic mansion located in Cumberland, England.
Thomas’ sister Lucille also resides in the crumbling estate, but Edith will soon find that her husband’s sister is not the only additional resident to be found within the walls of her new home. As Edith comes to realize she can commune with the dead, she also discovers that the secrets of Crimson Peak wish to divulge themselves.
Things are not be as they seem, and Edith may ultimately find that ghosts are not the greatest threat or potential source of peril she will face.
Guillermo del Toro pulled double duty by directing the film and co-writing the script with Matthew Robbins. The film stars Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Charlie Hunnam, Jim Beaver, and Doug Jones.
Moviegoers will have the opportunity to discover the terrifying and ghostly secrets contained within the decaying walls of the mansion, as Crimson Peak opens nationwide in theaters on Friday October 16th. Visit FANDANGO for showtimes and to purchase tickets.
