Guillermo del Toro: Crimson Peak

October 17, 2015 DGA Q&As in Los Angeles and New York

Just in time for Halloween, Director Guillermo del Toro seeks to terrify audiences with his classical haunted house story Crimson Peak.

Set in the late 19th century, del Toro’s film tells the story of a young bride who arrives at her new husband’s ancestral home, a crumbling mansion in rural northern England. Once there, she discovers there is much more to her new husband than she suspected and even more to her new home than she bargained for as the house is also occupied by spectral entities and other secrets.

Following the DGA membership screening in Los Angeles on October 6, del Toro spoke about the making of the film and the joys of creating ‘things that go bump in the night’ in a conversation with Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu [Birdman or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)]. del Toro also spoke about the film with Director Christopher Nolan (Interstellar) following the DGA membership screening of Crimson Peak in New York on October 17.

In addition to Crimson Peak, del Toro ’s filmography includes the features Cronos, Mimic, The Devil's Backbone, Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, and Pacific Rim; the pilot for the series The Strain; and episodes of the series Hora Marcada. He has been a member of the DGA since 1996.
