Gross, nightmarish creatures? Check. Air of creeping terror? Check. Unmistakable, del Toro-style dark, haunted atmosphere (the colors and feel remind me of Mimic)? Check. What's really cool about it, though, is its combination of the real-life horror of Franco's fascism with the main character's haunted fantasy world. While all the summaries of the film include reminders of the movie's setting, we tend to get so caught up in the surreal images of the fantasy portion that we forget that it's grounded in very real events -- if nothing else, the trailer's a reminder of how complex the movie (hopefully) will be. Of course, we won't know for sure until the end of September. Sigh.
