SFX - - Red Alert -


Guillermo’s in­ca­pable of mak­ing an un­in­ter­est­ing movie any­way, but the gothic hor­ror show­cased here looks so far up his street that this has got to be a must- see.


If I was a goth this would have prob­a­bly made me faint with joy. Ob­vi­ously a com­pen­dium of del Toro’s fas­ci­na­tions; I sus­pect the pro­duc­tion de­sign will be the real star – it looks rav­ish­ing.


I’m par­tial to a good gothic romp and I love del Toro when he’s at his most lyri­cal – hello, Pan’s Labyrinth – b ut t here’s j ust a touch of Tim Bur­ton do­ing The Haunted Man­sion here…

Is del Toro even ca­pa­ble of mak­ing a film that isn’t beau­ti­ful? Ev­ery­thing about this looks stunning. I would move into that man­sion right now – but­ter­flies, creepy dolls, ghosts and all.


I love ev­ery­thing del Toro has made ( even Mimic) and vis­ually this looks sump­tu­ous, but the plot seems wor­ry­ingly flimsy and this trailer ap­pears to give too much away. Con­sider me cau­tiously ex­cited.
