Pan’s Labyrinth (2006)

 Rated R. The foul-tongued Ellises are back!

The 91st Next 100 Project episode journeys back to 1940’s Spain for some war and some fantasy and several monsters, all of it pretty rough stuff. Terrific stuff though. Guillermo Del Toro’s movie might even be better than it was in 2006…and it was a landmark film even then. Just don’t let your kids watch it! We even do a mini-review of Del Toro’s lauded The Shape Of Water, so yay for bonus content. If you like discounts, get 10% off your first order of Sparkplug Coffee by using the code “Top100Project”.

FOR THE RECORD: Doug Jones is billed as “Amphibian Man” in The Shape Of Water. Also, Diego Luna is the other guy in Y Tu Mama Tambien.
