I'm a fan of Guillermo Del Toro's work. I'm a fan of dark horror, and I'm a fan of all things Lovecraftian.

This is Del Toro through and through. I went into this knowing the basic premise and nothing else - I had avoided the graphic novels because I didn't want to spoil this viewing - other than the issue with the billboards.

My view is definitely skewed. I saw elements of Lovecraft, I saw echos of Hellboy, and I definitely saw vast swathes of dark, adult, horror.

I'll stop there. If that hasn't convinced you, you're probably the wrong audience.
