Turning down a lot of roles just to be in Guillermo del Toro’s gothic thriller “Crimson Peak,” Charlie Hunnam revealed that the film is one of the director’s best films. Set to premiere at the height of the Halloween on Oct. 16, 2015, the movie stars Tom Hiddleston (“Thor”), Mia Wasikowska (“Alice in Wonderland”) and Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty”).

“It's a classic Gothic romance set against a backdrop of this very rural house in the middle of nowhere,” Hunnam told Details. “Everybody did a great job, Jessica [Chastain] absolutely killed it, she's wonderful in the film. I think it's one of Guillermo's best films, if not maybe his best film.”

Del Toro recently revealed at CinemaCon panel that his latest thriller movie comes with a “very sick and twisted elements.” He admitted that he loved Gothic romance while growing up and this is the reason why he love making this kind of “operatic spectacle.”

Set in 19th century England, “Crimson Peak” tells the story of a crumbling mansion in Cumbria owned by a mysterious brother and sister, Sir Thomas Sharpe and Lady Lucille Sharpe, played by Hiddleston and Chastain. Wasikowska plays Edith Cushing, a young writer who discovers that her husband (HIddleston) is not who he appears to be.

The “Sons of Anarchy” star plays the shy Dr. Alan McMichael who is madly in love with Wasikowska’s characters. Others stars in the film include Jim Beaver, Emily Coutts, Leslie Hope, Burn Gorman, Doug Jones and Laura Waddell.

Currently filming his upcoming epic movie “Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur” with Guy Ritchie, the 35-year-old is enjoying his new role as King Arthur in the latest remake of the classic Arthurian tale. Starring alongside with his “Cold Mountain” and “Queer as Folk” co-stars Jude Law and “Game of Thrones” star Aidan Gillen.

Best known for his big screen role as Raleigh Becket in del Toro’s sci-fi film “Pacific Rim,” “Crimson Peak” is the second collaboration of the actor to the Mexican director. The movie grossed $411 million worldwide and the 35-year-old star was awarded a Huading Award for Best Global Emerging Actor for his role.
