So Tim League said in his intro that we were allowed to talk about this movie in generalities but there was a review embargo until October 13th. So hopefully I remember to do that. Until then, it was good; I liked it.

Fuck it. If anyone thinks this is a legit review, I'll point them to my traffic reports.

The sets and costume design were really accomplished, as usual Del Toro's ghost design is great (if not a bit familiar compared to Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labrynth). The performances were great, but mostly what surprised me was that this is a full on grandiose "gothic romance" as Del Toro kept stating and I actually liked it. I definitely got notes of Rebecca here, but also stuff like Giant and Douglas Sirk. But there's also some trademark Del Toro moments that are really effective.

It was another slow burn but I had no trouble staying awake for this one. I liked it much more than I thought I would. It was really good.
