Freeze Frame

SFX - - Red Alert -

Edith mourns at a fu­neral – clearly she’s lost some­one close. Could it be her fa­ther, Carter ( Su­per­nat­u­ral’s Jim Beaver)?

… and in­vites her to live with him and his sis­ter at gor­geous gothic man­sion Allerdale Hall.

Edith goes ex­plor­ing. She’d be wise to stay out of the nurs­ery in the at­tic though.

Mia Wasikowska plays Edith Cush­ing – the name a clear nod to the iconic hor­ror ac­tor.

Tom Hid­dle­ston’s tall dark stranger Sir Thomas Sharpe woos Edith at the ball…

Lady Lu­cille Sharpe ( Jes­sica Chas­tain) gives Edith some­thing of a frosty re­cep­tion…

Del Toro may be work­ing with a low bud­get com­pared to

Pa­cific Rim, but he’s re­ally flex­ing those cre­ative mus­cles.

Es­pe­cially be­fore a ram­page. Could this be del Toro’s creepi­est crea­ture yet?

Char­lie Hun­nam plays Dr Alan McMichael – Edith’s friend – seen here in front of an elab­o­rate Cush­ing grave.

Ghostly ap­pari­tions need a good soak too, you know.

It’s only a dream. It’s only a dream. Er, right?

… be­cause Lu­cille’s only a flip­pin’ pi­ano- play­ing ghost!
