Trailer Review - Crimson Peak

Crimson Peak
Teaser Trailer
Watch It Here

Person of Interest: Mia Wasikowska as swept-up young bride Edith, Tom Hiddleston as a dark count, Jessica Chastain as his incestuous sister, and Charlie Hunnam as an older Nicholas Nickleby.

Scene Pop: No single scene is really necessary to point chiefly out, when you have all of that haunted house mood.

Briggs Breakdown: 3 ghosts, 3 knives, 3 scenes of piano-playing, 1 creepy toy, 1 scared cat, 1 horror movie in-joke, evil leather gloves, evil demon hand, and a free-fall.

Effective?: Yes. The trailer is a fairly routine Hollywood horror trailer but the lack of spoilerific money shots and that great tune ("Red Right Hand" by PJ Harvey) make it nicely fresh.

Check it Out?: Definitely. It's the latest from Guillermo del Toro; Why would you not want to check it out?
