PETERSBURG, Fla., Oct. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading live content retailer HSN is collaborating with Legendary and Universal Pictures to blend desire and darkness with mystery and romance to create an unparalleled entertainment retail experience inspired by Legendary and Universal's Crimson Peak.
