THE PITCH Goth- hor­ror in which Loki scares

the pants off us. A project long de­layed by the fact that del Toro took a sab­bat­i­cal in Mid­dle- earth be­fore re­luc­tantly trav­el­ling back to our own realm, Crim­son Peak looks set to tickle our fright­en­ing fan­cies by be­ing re­ally bloody scary... a rar­ity with hor­ror films th­ese days. A gothic ro­mance set in 19th- cen­tury Cum­bria, it stars Hid­dle­ston as Sir Thomas Sharpe, who his young bride Edith ( Wasikowska) soon starts to re­alise isn’t quite what you’d call an or­di­nary gen­tle­man. The Woman In Black mixed with Re­becca, per­haps? Or will del Toro go all- out su­per­nat­u­ral psy­cho, à la The Devil’s Back­bone? Ei­ther way, he prom­ises that “It’s a proper R rat­ing.” Bless you, sir.
