Back To Basics: Guillermo Del Toro To Direct A Ghost Story

Guillermo Del Toro always has his hands in a lot of different projects he is either producing, writing, developing, directing, or some combination of the four. After finishing up with Pacific Rim and "The Strain", we should get Crimson Peak as Del Toro's next directorial effort.

Crimson Peak is supposed to be a haunted house movie in the vein of The Haunting and The Shining. I take that to mean ghosts, murder, mayhem, and some creepy children. I'm looking forward to seeing what the man behind The Devil's Backbone can do with this particular horror sub-genre. (Is sub-genre a word or a thing? It is now.)

    Look is he ever going to come out with his fucking video game or not? Cause I've been waiting longer than an ugly orphan kid who asked Santa for some new parents.

    In the meantime, I would pay all of my dollars for a Del Toro-directed adaptation of BioShock. The man knows creepy, misunderstood children.

    They're seriously doing a tv\film version of The Strain? Goddammit. If it's anything like the trilogy only the first 50% will be worth a damn before it degenerates into terrible, Left Behind level psuedo-religious mystical BULLSHIT. I was so pissed I spent an audible credit on that 3rd book. I wanted to hurl my iPod across the room.

  • BendinIntheWind

    I was just about to post asking whether it was worth it to pick up the 3rd book.

    I thought the first one was pretty interesting and the sequel alright, but kind of lost interest and forgot about it. Once the TV announcement came around I thought about going back to finish up the trilogy, but... maybe not so much?

  • NateMan

    It's awful. Absolutely awful. An abomination against everything that came before, and every fine work on which del Toro's name rests. It's crap piled atop crap piled atop Old Testament garbage. It's like he saw Jesus sometime between writing the first and last books, and now we're all forced to listen to it. If the first one was a night making love to the woman (or man) you love, and the second was a one night stand with a fairly attractive stranger, the third was a drunken fumble with the local barfly in the back alley after closing with the acidic reek of vomit tickling your nose. It puts an end on things, but it's not one you want. I felt dirty, at the end. I felt like I'd just been eye-fucked by a cult leader. I was lessened as a reader by completing the series.

    I wish I was exaggerating. I loved the first one. And I hated the last one exactly as much as it sounds.

  • Guillermo del Toro gives good horror. This excites me.

    And subgenre is a word. It's a word with a lot of use in horror. This post alone has three subgenres: giant monsters, vampires, and haunted house.
