Guillermo del Toro has historically been at his best when telling ghost stories. Which is why, probably, there was so much excitement about his latest film. Perhaps the varying responses to del Toro’s previous work has shaped to some extent the wide divergence of opinion that Chris, Michael, Beau, JC and Sarah have on this hyper-gothic romance film. Listen to our review (and try not to get too angry…we lost track of ourselves and there are indeed some big spoilers in our review).

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
