The Great Scenes # 53: Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

Directed by Guillermo del Toro

Pacific Rim is out in theaters right now and I highly recommend that you go see it. It's my favorite blockbuster movie of the summer so far. The director of that film is Guillermo del Toro who made what is probably his masterpiece a few years ago with Pan's Labyrinth. It's magical, dark, violent grown-up fantasy film about a little girl going into the realm of magical creatures during the Spanish Civil War to escape her evil stepfather. My favorite scene from it is the one above. In just a few minutes, del Toro manages to craft and stimulate your imagination using only visuals and minimal dialogue of this horrific, terrifying character known as the Pale Man and turned it into one of the most unforgettable movie monsters of recent years.
