Guillermo del Toro has done many great things as a director, but perhaps none will have the continued resonance of the discovery he made in Pan's Labyrinth: that it's really f***ing freaky when a creature has eyes on its limbs rather than its head, where you'd expect them. After exploiting that little revelation (above), from the looks of this trailer, it appears he's found many more ways to make nightmare-inducing creatures in Hellboy II: The Golden Army. (The vagina-mouth thing at the 1:55 mark comes to mind.)
Despite some semi-cheesy computer effects and a villain that looks like a combination of Legolas and Rocky Horror's Riff Raff, the unquestionable brilliance of del Toro and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola gives me genuine hope for this sequel. So give it a look.
