With all the drang und sturm over the mecha/monster slugfest that was Pacific Rim, it might be easy to forget that director Guillermo del Toro is also the guy who brought us atmospheric and haunting fare like The Devil's Backbone. Thankfully, del Toro is set to return to that vibe with Crimson Peak. Set in a crumbling mansion in northern England, the film stars Mia Wasikowska as a woman who discovers that her husband (Tom Hiddleston) isn't what he seems ... DUN DUN DUN!

As an early teaser for Crimson Peak, del Toro put together an exhibit for this year's Comic-Con meant to immerse visitors in the movie's "beautiful and nasty" vibe -- an exhibit entirely designed by the visionary artist himself. To help kick off the Con, we took a tour and talked to del Toro about the feeling he's going for with the upcoming flick. Check it out below:
