Catch the chilling Crimson Peak in Ster-Kinekor’s IMAX cinemas for a hair-raising experience

OCTOBER 24, 2015

If you’re in the mood for a spine-tingling thriller with a touch of terror and some horror thrown in for good measure, then Guillermo del Toro’s new release Crimson Peak is just the movie for you this Halloween month.

Crimson Peakthe IMAX Experience® releases in Ster-Kinekor’s IMAX® theatres across the country on Friday, 30 October. This creepy, Gothic romance film set in a crumbling mansion in Cumbria, tells the story of a young author, Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska), and her charming new husband, Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston), whom she soon realizes is not the man he appears to be.

Shortly after moving into his eerie mansion atop a mountain of blood-red clay in northern England, Cushing discovers that her new home harbours ghostly mysterious entities that her husband and his sister, Lady Lucille Sharpe, desperately and fiercely try to hide. Between desire and darkness, mystery and madness, lies the real truth behind Crimson Peak. The search for it leads Cushing to a chilling discovery that forces her to fight for her sanity… and her very life.

The IMAX release of Crimson Peak has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of an IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are right there in the haunted house with the cast.

Crimson Peak is produced and directed by Mexican film maker Guillermo del Toro, who is well known for producing nerve-racking films that keep your eyes glued to the screen and you on the edge of your IMAX seat, as the hairs at the back of your neck stand on end.

The only way to experience this film, which is sure to alert your senses and send chills down your spine, is through the immersive cinematic experience at a Ster-Kinekor IMAX theatre near you.

“Guillermo del Toro doesn't merely direct movies. He paints them, dreams them, shapes them into private fantasies. Crimson Peak is a ghost story in which superior camerawork, costumes and production design work together to put the audience in a trance.” – Rolling Stone
