Another great European (this time from Spain) horror movie. pans_labyrinth_ver3This one has somewhat of innocent look, but it’s still pretty scary. Photography is just beautiful, just like the entire movie, which has so many captivating scenes. Do not let the origin of the flick fool you; this is a high production almost mainstream horror with great special effects. The play is set during the world war two and Ofelia is a little girl who discovers that her true origin might be magical. This news delivers a mystical being Fauno (played by Doug Jones who has double jointed legs, that comes in handy for these types of movies). Enjoy this magnificent movie.

Director: Guillermo del Toro

Cast: Ivana Baquero, Sergi López, Maribel Verdú, Doug Jones

Fun Stuff: After the first week, because so many parents brought small children to the film, movie theaters in Mexico placed signs on the posters warning about graphic violence.
