Editor's Note
Written and directed by Guillermo del Toro, PAN'S LABYRINTH is a thrilling, violent fairy tale set in post-Civil War Spain. Ivana Baquero stars as Ofelia, a young girl who moves with her mother, Carmen (Ariadna Gil), into the home of Captain Vidal (Sergi López), in an abandoned mill in the middle of dark, dangerous woods. Vidal is leading his team of soldiers against resistance fighters--and he will do whatever is necessary to kill every last one of them. As Vidal bosses around the pregnant Carmen, a flying creature leads Ofelia through a garden labyrinth and into an underground cave ruled by Pan (HELLBOY's Doug Jones), who believes that Ofelia might be the lost princess of this strange yet magical place. To prove she is royalty, Ofelia must complete three tasks, each more difficult and terrifying than the previous one. Meanwhile, Vidal is becoming more and more paranoid, torturing and murdering seemingly at will. Del Toro (THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE, HELLBOY, CRONOS) creates a marvelous battle between good and evil, between heroes and villains, in both the real world aboveground and the mystical land below. Baquero gives a compelling performance as the terrorized Ofelia, who is befriended by Mercedes (Maribel Verdú), a woman who harbors some secrets of her own. Stellar production design, superb special effects, and a stirring score by Javier Navarrete add to the scary fun. Selected as the closing-night entry in the 2006 New York Film Festival, PAN'S LABYRINTH is a captivating story that is not for the squeamish.

Expert Review Pan's Labyrinth - DVD
By: Chris Barsanti filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 5/4/2007 4:41 PM
Unfolding before viewers' eyes like luxuriantly blooming nightshade, Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth is a dark treat that delivers a powerful sting. The nightmare conventions are here in his story of a young girl whose moorings to the real world have been quite effectively cut, everything from mysterious forests and exaggeratedly evil father figures to subterranean monsters and a fairy world existing quite close to our own. But instead of losing himself in the otherworldly, del Toro bases this fantasia in the deadliest of realities. ...read the full review

ReelViews 9 of 10
One of the most anticipated releases of the 2006 holiday season is the latest offering from Mexican director Guillermo del Toro, whose previous credits include The Devil's Backbone, Blade 2, and Hellboy. With Pan's Labyrinth, del Toro opens a landscape where gothic fantasy elements are infused into the real-life horrors of the second World War...The term "fairy tale" can be used to describe Pan's Labyrinth, and references to The Wizard of Oz are not out of place. However, these should not go along with the expectation that this is a kid-friendly movie, because it is not. It contains scenes of graphic violence and images that will cause all but the most stalwart children to have nightmares...However, the lack of family friendliness does not diminish what del Toro has achieved with this magical motion picture. - James Berardinelli

Reel.com 10 of 10
With Pan's Labyrinth, Mexican filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro has created a kind of companion piece to his excellent and eerie 2001 ghost story, The Devil's Backbone. It's a fairytale itself, and also a terrifying story of a child caught in circumstances beyond her control. And for Del Toro, it's simply a glorious achievement, an irresistible and affecting mixture of horror, fantasy, history, and drama...Lately, Del Toro has been working more in Hollywood, helming Blade II and Hellboy. He will soon be back behind the camera to shoot Hellboy 2, and he has a whole slate of projects that he's involved with, including an adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Witches. It's so excellent that he took a break from that commercial work to make this obviously personal movie. His deep connection to the film touches every frame; it's a labor of love that marks the finest film of his career to date, and one of the very finest movies of 2006. - Pam Grady
