Plot Description: “A haunting gothic horror story directed by the master of dark fairy tales, Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy series, Pacific Rim), written by del Toro & Matthew Robbins and starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam and Jim Beaver.
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.”
I’m a fan of Guillermo del Toro. I loved Pan’s Labyrinth and the Hellboy series. I barely enjoyed Pacific Rim. In fact I fell asleep near the end, but I did watch it again. I also love del Toro’s and Chuck Hogan’s The Strain. I’ve read Hogan’s Devils in Exile and I tell you, it’s a good book. He is a talented author. Hogan also wrote The Town. It was later made into a movie starring Ben Affleck who also directed the flick.
Anyway, coming back to the Crimson Peak trailer, there are some interesting and creepy things happening in this trailer. I might just go see it. Or not. I don’t know yet. Maybe wait for another trailer? I mean this is del Toro, right?
Yeah, but then, remember Pacific Rim.
Mmmm.. You do have a point there, but still, you can’t deny the superiority and originality of Pan’s Labyrinth.
Quite right, and Hellboy was super cool. And, and, remember… you like The Strain. So in all fairness, he only failed you once. Technically speaking, of course.
Dammit. This is a conundrum.
No, it’s not. It’s pure logic. He failed you only once. Remember it’s just a movie. Plus he is returning to his horror roots. He always wins with horror. Yes?
It’s decided then?
I suppose so…
It’s decided. I’ll hear no more of it.
Lets go watch Pan’s Labyrinth!
Wha…? Oh, never mind. After you, my good sir.
