“Pan’s Labyrinth” film’s soundtrack by Tool

This dark tale makes a perfect visual track for a song “Forty Six & 2″ by American band “Tool”.

“Pan’s Labyrinth” directed and written by Guillermo del Toro. Film’s story, takes us to Spain 1944 where girl Ofelia happens to encounter a mystical creature (faun) who believes her to be Princess of underworld, who’s spirit was lost. Faun challenges Ofelia to complete 3 tasks to ensure that she is the actual princess.

During one of the challenges, Ofelia had to retrieve a dagger from the lair of the Pale Man, monster form Greek mythology.

This dark tale makes a perfect visual track for a song “Forty Six & 2” by American band “Tool“. The song references a wish to experience change through the “shadow”; an idea which represents the parts of one’s personality that one hates and fears, which also exists as a recurring theme in the work of Carl Jung.

It’s a great dark tale for a late night watch and this part is the scariest.
