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.
In a recent interview with STYD, del Toro makes it sound fairly clear that Crimson Peak will
have a lot more in common with The Shining than with The Haunting or The Innocents, at least
in terms of the content that's going to earn it an R rating.
Though it will be an English-language production, Del Toro says that Crimson Peak will be in
large part a return to his Spanish horror roots, which include films like The Devil's Backbone,
Cronos and Pan's Labyrinth.
