Description

The last living inhabitant of Allerdale Hall may have just passed away, but the centuries-old manor is far from vacant. When an eccentric, old bachelor dies with a mountain of debt instead of an heir, historian Lucy Montgomery is tasked with the valuation of his assets. The man’s seemingly derelict country estate turns out to be a treasure trove of intricate furnishings and priceless artwork for the antiques dealer, but Lucy’s not the only one interested in the house’s contents. Michael Davenport claims to be working for a rival firm, but his attention is focused on just one particular object. In spite of inexplicable noises and vanishing shadows, the duo discovers not only the innocuous-looking tapestry, but also a shocking mystery that unleashes Allerdale Hall’s suppressed fury. And the house is certainly mad . . . because secrets aren’t allowed to leave this place built on a bed of crimson clay and neither can anyone who has discovered them. **This chilling tale has been inspired by the gothic mansion at the heart of the upcoming film Crimson Peak, and is not official content from Legendary Pictures, or an extension of the film’s story. To find out the true story of what happened at Allerdale Hall, watch Crimson Peak in theaters October 16th.
