    "The Shape of Water" a genre-bending horror/fantasy film from Guillermo Del Toro

    An other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa's life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. When agent Richard Strickland (Michael Shannon) brings in a mysterious creature (Doug Jones) a part man, part fish captured in South America Elisa feels an unexpected connection.

    I honestly couldn't believe that no one posted a thread on the forums here or even FrighT hasn't made a page for this great-looking fantasy/horror film coming from the master himself, Guillermo Del Toro, this December 8th! It really looks good and exciting as well as alluring to its rather dark themes of a forbidden romance, I'm SO there! Crimson Peak was alright for Del Toro standards, even if it wasn't all THAT good. This looks like a step up from that, and this helps to have a good Bioshock vibe to it.

    I can't wait! Why hasn't anyone noticed this?

    Looks awesome to me. I love horror-romance and this looks wicked. The retro 50's vibe is cool too.
    Goes to the top of my "want to see" list. I rarely go to the theater, but I will for this one.

    I actually saw this a month or so ago and could have swore I posted about it here

    This is an incredible film! I loved every second of it. Definitely do not pass it up...it's possibly Del Toro's best work...yes it is THAT good!

    Totally different kind of movie but yes, as far as quality goes all around...it may not be BETTER by much but at the very least on par.

    I have seen the Dark Universe - yawning where the black planets roll without aim,
    where they roll in their horror unheeded, without knowledge, or lustre, or name.

    I loved this movie, it gets a 10/10 from me, it's simple in story, but complex in characters, the visuals compliment the story in creative ways that most movies rarely ever do, and it has a woman making sweet love to a fishman so it's oscar worthy just like Pan's Labyrinth, The Devil's Backbone, Pacific Rim, Mimic, Cronos and maybe even Crimson Peak.

    I hope they'll let Guillermo make this Mountains of Madness movie finally after the positive reception...but it's H-wood so maybe this will be Guillermo's last feature film to get any greenlight from major studios that are slowly dying in the mainstream.
