    Another cool "monster" under Doug Jones' belt! This guy is fantastic, he should be more recognized.

    Guillermo del Toro's style of storytelling is so nice. Pan's Labyrinth may still be my favourite by him but this story/movie is also really good. All of the actors were good as well. It's an interesting movie that takes you away for a little while, very fantastical and super visual. Can be a little violent at times, all of his films are, but this just adds to the fun, in my opinion.

    I loved this movie!!! One of the best of 2017 by far. Almost old style movie making its approach and a nifty little story made magical by the special effects and topic.

    Visually interesting movie! Storyline not very imaginative. Dark, violent undertones! Moves along slowly. There are far more enjoyable movies out there!

    A very imaginative and suspenseful film. Great artistic work. It appears that one very young and uneducated viewer has chosen to "pan" this film by entering dozens of negative reviews. Notice his/her grammar, word choice and use of expletives etc. There should be a way to prevent people from entering more than one or two reviews. What a hateful person! Ignore these reviews. Go see this movie. You will be enchanted. Instead of an R rating, this movie should have been rated IQ 100 or more to keep insensitive dummies out of the theater.
