Paris (AFP) - Haunted house movies are a Hollywood trope. But the latest about to hit our screens, by director Guillermo del Toro, promises a lusher, more gothic fantasy than most, with a sentimental heart. His "Crimson Peak", which rolls out around the world this month, borrows strongly from Del Toro's love of Edgar Allen Poe stories, especially "The Fall of the House of Usher", and the 1939 film version of "Wuthering Heights", with their complex reflections on human psychology. And, as fans of the Mexican director of "Hellboy" and "Pan's Labyrinth" have come to expect, the film boasts extraordinarily rich imagery."I love the visuals of horror, but I don't like the mechanics of horror," Del Toro, 51, explained to AFP in an interview in Paris.
