'The Shape of Water'

When you're a janitor at a U.S. government laboratory in the early 1960s, there's a good chance you may stumble across a few super-top-secret projects – like, say, plans for how to defeat the Commies, or maybe a fish-man (!) who the Feds want to use as a weapon. Sally Hawkins is the custodian determined to find out more about this mysterious creature; Doug Jones is the amphibian humanoid in question; Michael Shannon is the gung-ho agent who may have it out for the "monster." A new Guillermo del Toro movie is always a big deal, and this sounds like the perfect vehicle designed to hit his horror-with-heart-and-lots-of-baroque-goopiness sweet spot.
