Crimson Peak

I'm not a huge fan of the horror genre, but I am a big fan of director Guillermo del Toro. It's undeniable that he makes beautiful looking movies like Pan's Labyrinth, but he also does action really well. Just look at Blade II, the Hellboy films, and Pacific Rim for example. So even though his next film, Crimson Peak looks firmly to be horror based, it has raised some of my interest. Here's the official synopsis of the film:

"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."

The film stars Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland), Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers), and Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), and will be released Oct 16th. So what do you think? Will this movie be del Toro's "Ultimate Masterpiece" as the trailer proclaims? Or would you rather wait for Pacific Rim 2?
