Crimson Peak finds Mia Wasikowska (Stoker) as author Edith Cushing, who is newly married to the charming and heroic Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston). She moves to live with him in the titular massive, crumbling family pile in Cumbria. But soon after she arrives, she discovers that her husband is not who he appears to be, and the house itself has some very dark secrets.
Chastain, meanwhile, plays Lady Lucille Sharpe, Sir Thomas's sister, a woman who no doubt carries her fair share of dangerous mysteries swirling about her.
Based on the evidence of this first look, it's certainly a stylish, moody affair, dripping with both the slow burn gothic chills and rich twisted imagery del Toro has brought to films such as The Devil's Backbone (2001) and Pan's Labyrinth (2006).
With Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim), Burn Gorman (The Dark Knight Rises), Doug Jones (Pan's Labyrinth), Leslie Hope (Never Back Down) and Jim Beaver (Next) also aboard, Crimson Peak will haunt our cinemas on 16 October.
