First Look: Chastain In “Crimson Peak”

Though shot a while back, we’ve yet to really see anything from Guillermo del Toro’s foray into classic haunted house gothic horror with “Crimson Peak” at Legendary Pictures. Today, a scan from an EW article has gone online giving us a first look at Jessica Chastain in the R-rated, character-driven thriller which is set within a three-story Victorian mansion that was entirely custom built for the project.

The story follows 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. Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, and Charlie Hunnam also star in the film which won’t hit cinemas until October 16th.
