Cannibalism

The episode about the artists is extremely disturbing. At one point a mother murders her child, cuts his head off, and they show it cooking in the oven to be eaten for dinner with her husband.

Not for children: Adults only

Definitely for adults only, as the stories are very dark, undertones of evil supernatural events and phenomena. Some scenes are unnecessarily gory and disgusting and intends to shock viewers. The themes are lost in the morass of little related details, and the pacing is too labored to be taken seriously. Has a lot of airs about philosophical themes, but is really cheapened by unnecessary gore. I don't doubt Mr. del Toro 's talents as a storyteller, but I only think 2/8 are worth even talking about or recommending to friends. 25% - that's a failing grade.
