Pan's Labyrinth (El Laberinto del Fauno) 

Four stars (R)

Sergi López, Maribel Verdú, Ivana Baquero, Ariadna Gil, Alex Angulo, Doug Jones

An adult fairy tale from director Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, The Devil's Backbone, Cronos), well worth the whiplash you might experience spinning away from the moments of gruesome violence. It is Reservoir Dogs meets Roald Dahl meets pagan mythology in a gothic horror concoction that is sweet, bitter and beautiful. 110 minutes.

DVD INFO: A regular edition is available along with a two-disc special edition. The jazzed-up version includes a prologue and a commentary track by the director, featurettes, a TV interview and more. The regular edition includes bupkis. —Jim Poyser
