I heart the Pale Man and Pan's Labyrinth.

The relationship between Ofelia and Captain Vidal is consistently strained, as evident through their interactions due in large to the fact that the captain is, in his own rights, a monster. Ofelia’s actions throughout the movie are a means to undermine his authority and plans, especially in regards to his potential actions towards her newly born sibling. It is fitting that the Pale Man’s appearance would coincide with the manner in which her relationship had taken with Captain Vidal at the current moment. As her mother’s health is fading, Ofelia’s distrust and disdain for the captain grows up to the point that she sees him as nothing more than a monstrous individual that destroys all traces of happiness and freedom. It would seem that it could have been a representation of Captain Vidal that Ofelia encounters within the demonic world where she must retrieve the golden dagger, and like in the real world, the monster, both the Pale Man and Vidal, prevent her from completing her task and threaten her safety and well being. However, unlike Vidal, the audience never knows what becomes of the Pale Man.

and then pale man came up, we paused the movie and just stared at him for a long time

19. The violence of the real world appears fully-shaped in the Pale Man, which echoes Vidal's dining room and the facelessness of fascism. Del Toro originally designed the Pale Man like an old man who lost a lot of weight. Later he had the face removed and put his eyes on a platter, which was as del Toro had once seen a statue of St. Lucy--with her eyes on a platter and blood pouring out of her sockets. The director wanted a "church-like and a concentration camp feeling, with shoes piled up in corner; this perverse creature has a lot of food in front of it, but only eats children--innocents." The three doors Ofelia must pick from are an element in many fairy tales (threes). The director feels it is important that disobedience has different outcomes. Ofelia disobeys and picks the right door with the dagger, then she disobeys (because she's hungry) and eating the grapes gets her in trouble. Del Toro, "But no matter what, she follows herself, at the end of the movie, she learns to trust herself. No matter what dangers she went through, she still doesn't distrust her nature and her instincts. She chooses herself and remains true to herself."
