GOTHIC ROMANCE.

IF ANYONE IS FAMILIAR WITHTHE GENRE OF GOTHIC ROMANCE

HE'S THIS KIND OF TALL, DARKSTRANGER WHO IS THE INNOCENT

YOUNG HEROINE IS DRAWN TO.

ALWAYS ABOUT A YOUNG WOMAN BEINGKIND OF SEXUALLY ATTRACTED TO

SOMEONE VERY MYSTERIOUS, BUTSOMEONE WHO ALSO REPRESENTED

SOMETHING DANGEROUS ANDTHREATENING AND NOT THAT'S WHERE

GUILLERMO DEL TORO'S INTERESTLIES IN THIS ONE.

I REMEMBER WHEN I FIRST SAW THETRAILER, IT WAS AT THE MOVIES

AND IT CAME ON.

I'M NOT A FAN OF HORROR MOVIES.

NOT BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE THEM.

IT'S ALMOST NOT-- IT'S NOTTERRIFYING.

LIKE THE COLORS SCARE YOU, LIKEBEAUTIFUL COLORS!

LOOK IT REALLY IS A GORGEOUSPIECE TO WATCH.

IT IS A PERIOD PIECE THAT ISSCARY.

>> I THINK OF IT AS A TWINSISTER TO PAN'S LABYRINTH.

AND I THINK IT WAS 10 YEARS AGOGUILLERMO DEL TORO MADE.

AND IT'S A MARRIAGE OF VERYSOPHISTICATED ADULT MATERIAL

WITH THE SUPERNATURAL.

IT'S A LOVE STORY WITH GHOSTS INIT.

AND I THINK-- I'M SO LUCKY TO BEIN IT.

IT'S LIKE A PAINTING.

FILMS.
