Well-known Mexican director Guillermo del Toro is going back to horror with Crimson Peak, one that’s been gestating for a while.
He had recently discussed a Pacific Rim sequel with the folks at Legendary and said that he wants to do something ‘in a different genre that’s not so big.’ That genre is obviously a haunted house films, the film genre that won’t die.
Crimson Peak, one of the many projects that del Toro has been attached for a number of years, he wrote with collaborator Matthew Robbins and initially sold it as a spec script to Universal.
The movie seems staked out by many of our favorite haunted house movies, such as The Haunting all the way up to Kubrick’s version of The Shining. Del Toro told Deadline,
(it’s) another Mount Everest of the haunted house movie. I loved the way that Kubrick had »
