Why Guillermo del Torro MUST make a Creature Feature B-movie.

BECAUSE HE BLOODY WELL SHOULD AND IT WOULD BE FRAKKING AWESOME, THAT’S WHY. But if you prefer a more detailed and coherent argument keep reading.

Guillermo del Torro, for the clueless among you, is the genius mind behind great films such as Hellboy 1 & 2, Pan’s Labyrinth. So reason number one for why Signor del Toro should make a Creature Feature B-movie, well he’s awesome, but that is a rather subjective reason. Apparently he learnt make up and effects from the guy that worked on The Exorcist. His work draws inspiration from insects when creating his creatures.

Hellboy 2: The Golden Army is a prime example, The Angel of Death and the elemental forest god, are amazingly creepy, and beautifully rendered. Just a imagine a sky-scraper tall creature somewhere between the Grape Monster in Pan’s Labyrinth and the Angel of Death rampaging through down-town Tokyo or maybe even Central London. I would dearly love to see a gigantic insectoid monster stomp on Topshop.

The purpose of this post is to entertain and hopefully let the wonderful mental image of the beautiful creature del Torro would spawn blossom in your mind. It’s probably not going to happen for a LONG time, if ever. Just look at the sheer amount of projects he is involved in for the next two years (courtesy of IMDB) dang, that guy’s gonna have no time for sleep let alone a Creature Feature B-movie. Oh well I can dream…about monsters.

Hi

This is a blog aimed at keeping my writing muscles honed while I look for a job in journalism. It’ll feature  awesome reviews of recent video games, films, books and other equally geeky things.

The first reviews that will feature will be Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine and Deus Ex Human Revolution. The blog will likely be updated somewhat sporadically until I settle into a routine, and as well as reviews will also feature articles that may well go off on strange tangents, such as: 10 reasons why Guillermo Del Toro needs to make a B-movie creature feature.

So keep checking in as I’ll try to have something fun posted, hopefully something that will spark some discussions. If you like my reviews I can also be found on reviewedonline.co.uk.

So with further preamble, here’s the blog I hope you enjoy it.
