Pan's Labyrinth Review

We still have a few months before the domestic release of Pan's Labyrinth and have to admit that, with the recent trailer and posters, we are giddy with anticipation.

Check out a snippet of the early review for Pan's Labyrinth:

With his latest feature Del Toro demonstrates his masterful skill at crafting emotionally and visually arresting pieces of entertainment. No other film this year has effectively blended together visual and dramatic storytelling to create a brilliant piece of cinema that is not only emotionally involving, but haunts you for days. Del Toro’s colleague and producer Alfonso Cuaron could only work within the limits of J.K. Rowling’s imagination when he forayed into fantasy with his “Harry Potter” feature. Del Toro doesn’t have as large a canvas (or budget), but he makes broader strokes that are much more captivating and carry greater emotional weight and resonance.

The story of Pan’s Labyrinth is the type of fairytale that would be spawned from a union between H.P Lovecraft and Lewis Carroll, with a touch of Clive Barker. It is a fairytale indeed, but with plenty of violence, blood and terror, this one definitely ‘aint for the kiddies.
