Is that you, Sloth?

Yeah, its a Guillermo del Toro flick. I'm expecting good things from this guy, given the right project. He's actually got me kinda looking forward to BLADE 2, which is no mean feat since I didn't find the first one particularly compelling.

I saw The Devil's Backbone at the Toronto Film Festival. It's the absolute BEST genre film of the year. A haunting Ghost story set in pre World War 2 Spain. EVERYTHING about this film is top notch. Acting,sets,characterizations,Direction.You name it.The special effects with the child ghost being surrounded by bubbles,while haunting the orphanage, (where the film is set,) is very effective.I'm not going to reveal anymore than I already have.Discover it for yourselves,less you know the better. It's a must see.
