Horror Actressing: Maribel Verdú in "Pan's Labyrinth"

by Jason Adams

As long as there have been haunted houses there have been housekeepers keeping them, and the role of the housekeeper in a horror film is a tried and true one that film-makers can and have spun off a dozen different ways. There's the strange and sapphic Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson) in Rebecca; there's the seemingly good-natured but with a hell of a secret Mrs. Mills (Fionnula Flanagan) in The Others; and there's the bluntly unfriendly type typified by Mrs. Dudley (Rosalie Crutchley) in The Haunting who gets to speak the immortal line, "In the night. In the dark."

Guillermo Del Toro, would of course be familiar with all these tropes, which is why I think his spin on the role with the great Maribel Verdú in Pan's Labyrinth is so fascinating...

Watch Guillermo del Toro Dig Into ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’

I've always had a fondness for writer/director Guillermo del Toro's Spanish language fairy tale and horror films. Two of my favorites are The Devil's Backbone, and Pan's Labyrinth.

Recently del Toro sat down and shared his retrospective thoughts about Pan's Labyrinth. As you may or may not know, Pan's Labyrinth will make its 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray debut next week on Tuesday, October 1st.

The video runs just under 8 minutes in length. It's guaranteed to at least pique your Pan's Labyrinth curiosity, or remind those that have already experienced it that it's worth seeing again in 4K for the first time.

One of this writer’s most anticipated movies coming into 2019 was the big screen adaptation of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, which was directed by André Øvredal and is being produced by Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro (I just love writing that!). Ahead of its August 9th release, the film and its memorable characters were celebrated at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con where both del Toro and Øvredal were on hand to discuss their approach to bringing Alvin Schwartz’s timeless stories (with artwork by Stephen Gammell) to the big screen and give us some more insight into their collaborative relationship on the project.

‘Hellboy’ Creator Turned Down Comic Book of Guillermo del Toro’s Unmade Third Film

‘Hellboy’ Creator Turned Down Comic Book of Guillermo del Toro’s Unmade Third Film
Hellboy” creator Mike Mignola reveals in a new interview with ScreenRant that he once heard from Guillermo del Toro about turning the unmade “Hellboy 3” into a comic book, an idea the creator rejected. Del Toro directed 2004’s “Hellboy” and 2008’s “Hellboy II: The Golden Army,” earning critical acclaim for his visionary approach in adapting Mignola’s comic book. The “Hellboy” character became more of a household name after del Toro’s movies, but the films were not successful enough at the box office to warrant a third entry. When the idea came up to adapt del Toro’s “Hellboy 3” story as a comic book, Mignola turned it down as to not confuse comic book fans.

“I think del Toro mentioned it to me once, and I said no,” Mignola said. “I think, let the comics be the comics. Comics are confusing enough for people. Let’s not have two different

Why Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Isn't a Traditional Horror Anthology

Why Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Isn't a Traditional Horror Anthology
Producer Guillermo del Toro and director Andre Ovredal's upcoming adaptation of Alvin Schwartz's kid's horror book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark will be unleashed upon the masses next month. I don't know about you, but I'm super excited to see what Del Toro and company have in store for us with this new flick.

And today we have word that over the weekend at Comic-Con, Guillermo del Toro explained why the upcoming family-friendly horror movie isn't taking the anthology route. And it makes a whole lot of sense. Del Toro explains this.

"When we started talking about this about five years ago, I had to think about it. Anthology films are always as bad as the worst story in them - they're never as good as the best story. Then I remembered in 'Pan's Labyrinth,' I created a book called the Book of Crossroads.

‘The Terror: Infamy’ New Trailer: Old Spirits Haunt a Photographer During World War II – Watch

‘The Terror: Infamy’ New Trailer: Old Spirits Haunt a Photographer During World War II – Watch
On “The Terror: Infamy,” Chester Nakayama (Derek Mio) has big dreams to become a photographer, but his latest pictures are looking kind of funny, as can be seen below. AMC released a brand-new trailer at Comic-Con on Friday that leans into the J-horror inherent in this season’s mystery.

In its first season, the anthology series investigated what happened to Captain Franklin’s famed lost expedition, in which all 129 men aboard two Royal Navy ships were lost after they became icebound seeking the Northwest Passage. This season takes place during World War II, specifically during the internment of Japanese-Americans following the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Chester Nakayama is living on Terminal Island when his life is turned upside-down by the government and by a mysterious presence that has been haunting the community. The trailer mentions terms such as “yurei” – figures from Japanese folklore that are similar to ghosts – and “bakemono,

‘Bob’s Burgers’ Movie Confirmed as Musical-Mystery, Creator Teases More Details at Comic-Con
Loren Bouchard always comes to Comic-Con prepped with news, and 2019 was no different. After rattling off a list of punny titles and plot descriptions for the upcoming Season 10, the creator of “Bob’s Burgers” asked the audience if they wanted to hear about the announced feature film.

“We have been very, very hard at work on the ‘Bob’s Burgers’ movie,” Bouchard said. “There’s a lot we can’t talk about. It’s hopefully going to be a ‘Bob’s Burgers’ gift to you, [the fans], if we do our job. It’s a musical. It’s a mystery. […] We are very, very excited that that’s part of our day-to-day right now.”

That was all he said at the time, but when a fan asked about the eponymous Bob’s backstory and whether we would ever learn more about his parents, Bouchard shared a bit more.

‘Solar Opposites’: Aliens Land in the Suburbs in Justin Roiland’s New Animated Hulu Show

While each streaming service is each staking claims to their slice of the adult animation world, Hulu’s entry, “Solar Opposites,” has kept plenty of its details close to the vest. On Friday at a Comic-Con panel, series co-creators and “Rick and Morty” vets Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan expanded on the vague “alien family comedy” description that’s followed the show since its series order last summer.

“It’s a group of aliens and their home planet gets destroyed by an asteroid and a bunch of them flee. We follow one particular escape pod of aliens that end up landing on earth. It really is an immigrant story, but it’s from the perspective of aliens. They’re kind of unfamiliar with everything,” Roiland told the gathered crowd at Comic-Con’s Indigo Ballroom. “They don’t understand human culture. They don’t know what’s real and what’s fake.

‘The Witcher’ Trailer: Netflix Debuts First Footage of Grand Fantasy Series at Comic-Con — Watch

Netflix’s next big franchise debuted its first footage at Comic-Con, making a convincing argument it could be the next big-picture epic to fill fantasy fans’ “Game of Thrones”-sized hole in their hearts. The trailer is below, and on hand in San Diego to personally tease what’s coming were showrunner Lauren Hissrich and cast members Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra, and Freya Allan, with the former Superman leading the charge.

“What attracted me to Geralt?” Cavill said of the lead character he plays. “I’m a big gamer. I’ve played the games a lot. […] He’s not your average hero. He’s a tough, real-world type person who won’t treat everyone differently. […] He’s a hero deep down.”

The Witcher” is based on the best-selling fantasy series by author Andrzej Sapkowski, but it’s also a series of comic books and video games, the latter of which were produced by Projekt Red.

Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Pre-Order is Live

Another Guillermo del Toro modern classic, Pan's Labyrinth (2006), is coming soon in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.

The confirmation of this fantastic news comes via Amazon.com where an active pre-order listing complete with cover art (seen below) has gone live.

Though Amazon currently wants a rather steep $41.95 for the Pan's Labyrinth 4K Uhd release, their pre-order price guarantee will kick in when the cost ultimately drops closer to release.

When exactly the Pan's Labyrinth 4K Blu-ray is coming out remains a mystery.

Its debut on 4K likely timed to coincide with the home video debut of another similar genre film this summer. Jordan Peele's Us on June 18th is certainly a possibility, though I'd put my money on the Hellboy reboot due in either July or August at the latest.

We'll share the Pan's Labyrinth 4K release details as soon as we have them.
