Brought to Earth as an infant by Nazi occultists during World War II but rescued by Allied forces, Hellboy (Ron Perlman) is a big, red, cigar-smoking demon raised under the care of the B.P.R.D., a government agency dedicated to protecting the world from all forms of supernatural evil. As their top agent, Hellboy leads a team consisting of fish-man Abe Sapien (Doug Jones) and his flame conjuring ex-girlfriend Liz (Selma Blair) to combat Nazis, monsters from another dimension, and their own inner demons in this iconic film filled with intense action, richly dark humor, and just a dash of Lovecraftian horror thrown in for good measure. Helmed by acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro and based on the comic series by Mike Mignola, Hellboy brings a unique take on the monster movie genre with its heartfelt and lovable team of paranormal investigators, keeping the world safe, one monster at a time.
