The Abysmal Brutes

The Shape of Water: Celebrating the Other with Guillermo del Toro

February 3, 2018

Once upon a time Guillermo del Toro took his passion for Creature of the Black Lagoon and re-imagined it into a Cold War fairy tale where the creature and mute cleaning woman consummate their love.  The Abysmal Brutes are lifelong fans of del Toro’s wondrous and macabre storytelling. Giant piloted robots, grotesque vampires, supernatural Nazi’s and hard luck princesses.  What is so great about del Toro’s films, is that there is so much depth and detail to discuss after a viewing. Rocko and Rob take that deep dive into this latest and most successful movies of Guillermo del Toro’s career.  Plunge into The Shape of Water with the Abysmal Brutes but mind the Gill-man and fairy princess.
