Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation of William Lindsay Gresham’s notorious and macabre thriller Nightmare Alley, about an evil con-man (Cooper) who teams up with a female psychiatrist (Blanchett) to trick people into giving them money, is now opening December 17, 2021. That’s further into the Christmas season than originally slated, but hey, my Kreepsters, anytime Guillermo del Toro’s film opens is just fine with me. Actually, the choice was Fox Searchlight Pictures, and as long Nightmare Alley is actually hitting the big screen, I’ll be there with skulls on!
