It'll happen

Once it's released on rental DVD, I wonder how many young families choosing something gentle for an evening's viewing will mistake Guillermo del Toro's 'Pan's Labyrinth' for Jim Henson's 'Labyrinth', resulting in years of traumatic nightmares.

I'd highly recommend 'Pan's Labyrinth', but know what you're getting. The Pale Man certainly terrified this thirtysomething, not to mention the Captain's almost casual brutality.

Incidentally, my inner pedant can't help emphasising that the correct title is 'El Laberinto del Fauno' – nothing whatsoever to do with the Greek god. I know the IMDb lists the faun's name as 'Pan', but that's incorrect, and neither the film nor the end credits give the character any name but 'Faun' – in fact, that's a plot point.
