Guillermo del Toro at the Crimson Peak Gothic Gallery

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, part of Legendary’s Guillermo del Toro experience was an immersive walkthrough down a gothic corridor populated with costumes and props from the sets of del Toro’s 2015 Victorian horror film, Crimson Peak. Del Toro himself was on hand on Wednesday night to personally guide us through — you can see video of this here below, along with some photos.

During the guided walkthrough, del Toro pointed out the painstaking attention to detail given to creating the ultimate spook house replica, some of which can be seen in the video below. Wood moldings were deliberately cut to appear blurry, hiding the shapes of bodies in their negative space, butterfly motifs are embedded everywhere within the costumes and props. The family crest hides a skull when seen in the right light. Even the wallpaper itself hides the word ‘fear’ in its repeating pattern. For the actual film shoot, a three-story high, fully-functional house was built on a soundstage, and most of the special effects were done in-camera, shot on stage as practical effects.

Del Toro called Crimson Peak the “older, bigger sister” to his Spanish-language horror films, The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth, saying that the upcoming release allows him for the first time to bring his painterly, delicate, labor-intensive design aesthetic from those films into an English-language film.

Crimson Peak is scheduled to be released on October 16, 2015,
