Talk about a reason to post...this movie is GOOD! It was directed by Guillermo del Toro (Blade II, Devil's Backbone, Hellboy <-- enough reason there to see it right there). I'm not sure how to best describe this film without giving anything away. It is reminiscent of Labyrinth, Return to Oz, Mirrormask or any other dark, fantasy movie that you can think of, yet a bit darker and sadder. Like some of these other films, this is a story surrounding a child dealing with conflict and escaping to a supernatural world. She is trapped in a life that blurs fantasy with reality, creating a surreal existence.
