Nominated: Outstanding Latino Director of a Feature Film, 1998 ALMA Awards
A movie that boldly involves itself with those things that del Toro is most interested in, namely the horrors, both imagined and very real, of childhood, subterranean action, disease, and the inevitable repercussions of good deeds done. -- Chris Cabin, SLANTMAGAZINE.COM
