Mysterious Tom Hiddleston is mysterious. We like

Ghosts are real. This much you must understand if you are to get Guillermo del Toro's latest film, Crimson Peak. Set in 19th-century England, the film stars Mia Wasikowska as young author Edith Cushing, who is swept off her feet by the charming Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston). The two eventually marry and move to a mansion in the northern English countryside.

There, Edith meets Thomas's sister, Lady Lucille Sharpe (Jessica Chastain) who warns her that some areas in the house are not safe. Also entwined in the story is Dr. Alan McMichael (Charlie Hunnam), who is besotted by Edith and watches over her (hopefully not eerily?). It looks like Thomas has not revealed something sinister about himself to his new wife, so we're guessing Dr. Alan will be there to save the day.

Crimson Peak is the fourth film Guillermo has directed, wrote and produced at the same time, after doing so for 1987 short film Geometria, critically acclaimed Pan's Labyrinth and the popular sci-fi monster film Pacific Rim. The Hobbit trilogy writer has a knack for horror films, so we're all eyes and ears (and goose bumps) for Crimson Peak, which is scheduled for a 15 October release in Malaysia, just in time for Halloween.
