Set in a spooky mansion in Victorian England, Crimson Peak tells the story of a young author, played by Mia Wasikowska, who discovers her charming new husband (Thor's Tom Hiddleston) is not quite who he appears to be.

And there are all kinds of little treats for horror fans in the new trailer, from ghostly skeletons dragging themselves along corridors, to blood-soaked snowy exteriors and unwelcome night-time visitors.

Although Guillermo Del Toro has been involved in a number of horrors in recent years, including Mama and Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark, Crimson Peak is a rare genre project that he's both directed and written (alongside co-writer Matthew Robbins) - so expectations are high for a film that Stephen King has already called "gorgeous and terrifying".
