Feature Follow Friday

Feature Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, and is a way to meet and greet new followers.
So hello any new followers! Feel free to say hi on this post.

Today's question is: What is your favorite movie? - Suggested by A Kernel of Nonsense

My favourite movie of all time is Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth. It's a dark fairytale woven through the realities of war, and while I can't watch the movie often because of the gore and horror, it still resonates within me. 
I'm a sucker for fairytales and fairytale retellings, and this has the same feel as one of Grimm's original gory fairytales. 

The pale man continues to haunt my dreams
The imagery is so gorgeous, and the atmosphere is enchanting yet hollow. It's a horror film as much as a fairytale.

It's a huge influence on my writing, as I too, write dark fantasy--fairytales with a twist. 

What about you? What's your favourite movie? I'd love to hear all about it.

And don't forget to enter my giveaway for The Nutcracker Bleeds. It's international, and the book is a dark fairytale much like this is.
