Ah, it’s good to be Kings.

While the rest of us must wait until October 16th to catch more than a trailer’s glimpse of Guillermo del Toro’s impossibly gorgeous looking Crimson Peak, horror-meisters Stephen King and his son Joe Hill have already seen the film. The original story was written by del Toro — with screenwriter Matthew Robbins — around the time of Pan’s Labyrinth, but it’s been waiting for that moment the director could take the helm himself. If the trailer is any indication, it shares Pan’s incredible visuals and the feel of an old school horror film. (Del Toro has said he wanted to honor classics like The Haunting, The Exorcist, The Omen and The Shining.) But forget my thoughts on how it looks; those King men have a few words to say about the finished product — and it looks like we’re all in for a frightfully delicious treat:

Joe tweeted his approval first:

Then, dear old dad weighed in:

AAAAGGGHHH! I don’t think I can stand the wait.

Let’s console ourselves with pretty (creepy) pictures.
