HELLBOY SET VISIT
Scott Chitwood here! I've just returned from Prague where I got the chance to visit the set of Hellboy. The film is directed by Guillermo del Toro (Blade 2) and stars Ron Pearlman, John Hurt, and Selma Blair. It's based on the Dark Horse comic by Mike Mignola about a demon brought to earth in WWII by the Nazi's in a botched cult ritual. Rather than bring to the earth an amry of demons to attack their enemies, the Nazis bring over a young boy demon, nicknamed 'Hellboy' by the allies. They take him and train him, eventually having him take part in an organization to investigate (and battle) paranormal phenomenon. Combine X-Files, Men In Black, X-Men, and Blade and you have Hellboy. This movie will hit theaters on Memorial Day 2004.
I visited the set where I saw a battle between Hellboy and one of the monsters named Sammael. I interviewed the crew and got an extensive tour of the set. For my ongoing report, visit SuperHeroHype.com!
