The guys pull out their book of fairy tales and head into the twisted mind of Guillermo Del Toro for 2006's Pan's Labyrinth. They discuss the role of magic in the film and whether Del Toro's is a world in which magic exists or if it serves as a coping mechanism for our heroine Ofelia, how Del Toro subverts the fairy tale dynamic with his treatment of his princess, and the impeccable style that is used to tell this amazing and stark story. They also decide if Pan's Labyrinth passes the sleepover test, is better than Star Wars, and what the cast would be for the American remake. They pick their favorite bathroom reading material and torture method of choice.
