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.
