There are some scary movie trailers that make you instantly roll your eyes -- the blonde is running up the stairs again? The plucky brunette just publicly stated that she doesn't believe in ghosts?! No way. Not gonna see it.
But then there's true gems like this new trailer for horror master Guillermo del Toro's "Crimson Peak," which finds young 19th century writer Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) moving into a spooky old mansion with her husband, Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston). There, they meet not only Thomas' sinister, total-incest-vibes sister (Jessica Chastain), but a whole gaggle of absolutely terrifying ghosts.
Seriously, if you've seen any of del Toro's past work -- think "Pan's Labyrinth," "The Devil's Backbone," and "The Strain" -- then you already know that he's the de facto master of creature horror. The nightmare-inducing spirits in this trailer appear to be yet another success, and the wonderfully moody music ("Red Right Hand" by PJ Harvey) should have you swearing off creepy old attics for months:
"Crimson Peak" hits theaters on October 16.
