    But I am still wondering about Abe.
    Was it Abe in the beginning?
    Why is it not?
    Or is it and they are not allowed to?
    Is this against Mignola?
    What does Mignola think about this?

    The way del toro said it it never had anything to do with abe. Del toro wanted to do a reversal of Creature from the black lagoon turning it into a romance with the monster instead of a horror story.

    I love the subtle imagery in Pan's Labyrinth the recurring fallopian/vaginal/feminine image you posted refers to the fact Ofelia's idea of heaven is going back into her mother's belly

    This seems so hard to believe. I suspect half if that statement is legal necessity.

    I suspect so too. I can go with most of it but the rotten eggs always seemed like a dead giveaway to me

    At the very least there was a subconscious influence going on

    I haven't even seen the second trailer. kingbugs

    Lately I've been pretty one-and-done with most trailers, though. Wouldn't be shocked if in the near future I just drop watching trailers in general, to be honest. The Blade Runner 2049 experience really changed the way I look at all of that.
