Pan’s Labyrinth- Everything Else

One of the greatest works of prolific horror director Guillermo Del Toro, Pan’s Labyrinth is a tale of a girl who escapes to a supernatural world beneath her own during the aftermath of the brutal and bloody Spanish Civil War. It always leaves the viewer guessing what is reality and what is fantasy, even up until after the movie ends. Creatures such as the Pale Man are malevolent beings, whereas others, such as the great toad, are more neutral (until disturbed). Caverns, great feasting tables, and tree hollows are some of the many places the viewer gets to glimpse in the world beneath our own.

Aw man am I the only one who’s excited?

I guess not recognizing him is normal and understandable. (And they didn’t really namedrop in the trailer so there’s also that) Most of the characters he’s known for portraying are buried under makeup, and sometimes his voice is even dubbed over (even though his voice is perfectly fine). I’m also a Guillermo del Toro fan, but I definitely didn’t recognize him between his roles at first.

Just for those who are still scratching their heads over his name– he most notably played Abe Sapien in the Hellboy films, the Faun in Pan’s Labyrinth, a couple of the ghosts in Crimson Peak, and other side characters in those films. He also played the Silver Surfer in that one old Fantastic Four movie (haha definitely not del Toro, I know). He’s been in a bunch of other things, but I mostly know his del Toro roles.

Anyway, what’s really interesting about him is that once you know what to look for when comparing his characters, you can start to recognize him, even when you can’t see his face at all. He moves in a very distinctive and recognizable manner– he’s a contortionist, and I believe he also studied mime! Really neat actor. He always brings something mesmerizing to his characters (like the way he moves his hands? Man. Nobody else can make simple gestures look so cool).

Anyway, to sum up I just think he’s a really neat addition to the cast, I just felt like sharing, and I’m excited to see what he brings to Star Trek!
