Recognized gothic author Joe Hill also gave his insights on the forthcoming movie on Twitter. He said that the film is the "most beautiful of all" among the thirteen most beautiful horror films on his list.

"CRIMSON PEAK is Del Toro's blood-soaked AGE OF INNOCENCE, a gloriously sick waltz through Daphne Du Maurrier territory," he also said.

"Crimson Peak" is an upcoming horror film, which is about a woman who finds out that her new husband is not who he appears to be.

The film will star Mia Wasikoska as Edith Cushing, Tom Hiddleston as Sir Thomas Sharpe, Jessica Chastain as Lady Lucille Sharpe, Charlie Hunnam as Dr. Alan McMichael, and Jim Beaver Caster Cushing.
