(2004) dir Guillermo del Toro w/Ron Pearlman, John Hurt, Selma Blair, Rupert Evans [122 min; 35mm]
In Del Toro's action-packed adaptation of Mike Mignola's great comic book, HELLBOY, a demon raised by humans to help protect them from the things that go bump in the night, must battle a certain immortal Russian and foil his terrifying plan to destroy the Earth. All the while Hellboy (or "Red" to his friends) must keep a government-mandated low profile which is hard when you're 7-feet-tall and bright red with a tail.
