Haunted house movies are a Hollywood trope."Crimson Peak," which rolls out around the world this month, borrows strongly from Del Toro's love of Edgar Allen Poe stories, especially "The Fall of the House of Usher," and the 1939 film version of "Wuthering Heights," with their complex reflections on human psychology. Hewing to a theme in many of Del Toro's films, "Crimson Peak" also focuses more on the female characters in an effort to make the well-worn genre "more modern and lively".Although he is more widely seen through his Hollywood output, Del Toro sees his work as "very Mexican".
