Pan’s Labyrinth

When I was younger, my friends and I watched the labyrinth and argued over wether David Bowie was a guy or a girl.

It was a cool movie with camp Jim Henson Muppets, so it wasn’t terribly scary.

This “Pan’s Labyrinth” looks a little scarier with some freaky looking monsters and cool sets.

“PAN'S LABYRINTH is a fanciful and chilling story set against the backdrop of a fascist regime in 1944 rural Spain. The film centers on Ofelia, a lonely and dreamy child living with her mother and adoptive father; a military officer tasked with ridding the area of rebels. In her loneliness, Ofelia creates a world filled with fantastical creatures and secret destinies. With post-war repression at its height, Ofelia must come to terms with her world through a fable of her own creation.”

Check out the site with the trailer here.



I hope it’s not being marketed as a kids’ flick. Looks way too scary.

Woah, I remember seeing that movie when I was younger, and I've never been able to come up with the name. Weird.
