Dakle lupate napamet.

In an email to the New Yorker's Daniel Zalewski, who has been following the Mexican director's attempts to get the ambitious movie greenlit, Del Toro wrote: "Madness has gone dark. The 'R' did us in."

Del Toro refers to the R certificate that the film was likely to receive from US censors. Lovecraft's story concerns a group of scientists who encounter mutating aliens during an expedition to Antarctica, and Del Toro was not keen to tone down the horror to achieve a more marketable PG13 rating. He had previously told the New Yorker that while the film would not be especially gory, he wished to retain the creative freedom "to make it really, really uncomfortable and nasty" and therefore required permission to risk an R. However, it seems Universal was unwilling to finance a movie that might struggle at the box office. Only those above the age of 17 can see an R movie in the US, unless accompanied by an adult.

"The natural flaw of horror is that 99% of the time it's a clandestine genre,"
Del Toro said in another conversation with Zalewski. "It lives and breathes – Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the first Saw, The Blair Witch Project – in dark little corners that come out and haunt you. Rarely is there a beautiful orchid that blooms." The film-maker compared the scope of At the Mountains of Madness to Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. "[That] was a major film-maker using cutting-edge optical technology and special effects," he said. "It was a big-budget movie. It had Edith Head designing costumes, it had all the luxuries. And it was appealing because it had all the polished aspects of a studio film."


An R-Rating for the Lovecraft adaptation was very much a deal-breaker for him too, according to del Toro. He seems aware that this may have contributed to the project’s termination, but points out that he’d made his feelings on the matter quite clear to studio heads:

“Ultimately, I think the MPAA could rule the movie PG-13 because the movie and the book are not gory. If that is the outcome, fine… The only thing I know about ‘Mountains’ is, I do not want it to be bloody, I do not want it to be crass, but I want it to be as intense as possible. And those discussions were had in the open. Everyone knew this was my position, that I knew I was asking the chance for the movie to be what it needs to be. I don’t think it’s a good idea to relinquish that on paper.”

Chek, a shta smo mi rekli?
"Willing is not enough, we must do. Knowing is not enough, we must apply."

"I don't like jellyfish, they're not a fish, they're just a blob
They don't have eyes, fins or scales, like a cod
They float about stingin' people in the seas
An' no one eats jellyfish with chips and mushy peas.
Get rid of them!"

Pa optužiste čoveka da oće blood and gore.

Južnjak je napisao:Sad da ne lupam mnogo, ali pre bih reko da on traži R rejting jer (pretpostavljam) hoće da prikaže sve one scene iskasapljenih kerova i kampera, kao i onih živuljki što su iskopali iz pećina. Koliko se sećam, sam Lovkraft takve stvari tek ovlaš spomene i ne detaljiše, a više se fokusira na psihološki efekat koji takvi prizori imaju nad samim likovima. Ko što rekoh, moguće je da Del Toro planira da to prikaže u fulu, sa hektolitrima krvi, crevca, rebarca itd.

...kriv sam?
The god of man is a failure
Our fortress is burning against the grain of the shattered sky
Charred birds escape from the ruins and return as cascading blood
Dying bloodbirds pooling, feeding the flood
The god of man is a failure
And all of our shadows are ashes against the grain

In the eyes of our butchers we all are the same
The Crescent, The Cross, all the gods failed
No one can save us, we're already dead
