Updates On del Toro's "Peak," "Pan" Musical

6 December 2012 9:07 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has revealed on his message boards that his upcoming supernatural film "Crimson Peak" isn't akin to "The Haunting of Hell House" as previously reported.

Rather it's a Bronte-esque "gothic romance with ghosts", think a spookier take on the Thornfield Hall scenes of "Jane Eyre." It's also his most direct horror movie in many years.

"It’s set at the turn of the century and it is a gothic romance with ghosts. When I use the Gr [gothic romance] term I use it not in the Barbara Cartland model but rather in a Bronte fashion. Dark and stormy and wind-swept. This is my first foray into horror since "Mimic." "The Devil’s Backbone" was more of an essay on ghosts than a ghost story and, except as a producer, I have not returned to scary stuff in a long time."

Speaking of del Toro, turns out his beloved 2006 dark »
