Hellboy is a supernatural action-thriller film based on the Dark Horse Comics character who is conjured by the Nazis during World War II in order to tilt the balance of the war to their favor. 1944 – The United States Army finds a baby demonic creature amidst a top secret mission to foil a Nazi plot, headed by colonel Karl Kroenen that would have turned the war’s fate fatally to their favor. Hellboy is somewhat adopted by Dr. Trevor Broom, a specialist in the occult cultures. Sixty years on, Hellboy has matured and now works in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense alongside two comrades; Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman, whom Hellboy has an infatuation for. However, Liz can’t seem to come to terms with her great powers and repeatedly leaves the bureau and admits herself to the mental hospital. Meanwhile, Kroenen and his partner Ilsa have resurrected Rasputin and head for New York’s Machen Library for Paranormal Artifacts. Through the use of magic, Rasputin is able to summon a deadly hellhound known as Sammael. To add to the beasts devastating abilities, Rasputin imbues it with the power to split and reincarnate through quick hatching and maturing eggs. Hellboy is doing all he can to put an end to this, but the more he kills Sammael, the more it multiplies. Hellboy was followed by a sequel released in 2008, Hellboy II: The Golden Army. The film won a Saturn Award and an Imagen Award and nominated for several others. This movie is rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence and images.
