Pan's Labyrinth The film centers on Ofelia, a lonely and dreamy child living in fascist Spain in 1944 with her mother and adoptive father, a military officer tasked with ridding the area of rebels. In her loneliness, Ofelia creates a world filled with fantastical creatures and secret destinies. With post-war repression at its height, Ofelia must come to terms with her world through a fable of her own creation. Cronos The directorial debut from Guillermo Del Toro, Cronos combines a surreal and distincitve take on the classic vampire yarn with an allegory about US/Mexican relations. Cronos concerns elderly antique dealer Jesus Gris who, with his eight-year-old granddaughter Aurora, discovers an ancient artifact that once belonged to a 16th century alchemist. Unbeknownst to Gris, the device - which resemble an ornate mechanical beetle- houses an immortal parasite that will grant eternal life to its host. The cost? An extreme aversion to daylight and an agonising thirst for human blood. The Devil's Backbone A deliciously dark horror, The Devil’s Backbone tells the tale of a remote Spanish orphanage during the final days of The Spanish Civil War whose young inhabitants are brutally terrorised by Santi, a decomposing spirit who stalks the building’s dark decaying hallways. But, as the film builds to a grisly, explosive finale, the children learn the true story of Santi’s death and rise up to vow a deadly vengeance on his vicious murderer.
