23 Oct The Pale Man – Corinna Maguire
“Be careful. What slumbers there… is not human”
~ The Faun, warning Ofelia about the Pale Man.
The Pale Man is a vile, humanoid monster with pale elastic skin and has a immense appetite for small defenceless children. He is featured in the film, Pan’s Labyrinth. During Ofelia’s quest to prove herself worthy that she hadn’t turned into an ordinary human, she was sent to his lair to retrieve a dagger. She was warned to not eat anything from his banquet table but she ate two juicy plump grapes. This woke the Pale Man from his slumber, who quickly picked up his eyeballs off a platter on the table and placed them into the eye sockets in the palm of his hands, to see and immediately set off to find and eat Ofelia.
