Guillermo del Toro

Guillermo del Toro says he has “a fetish for insects, clockwork, monsters, dark places, and unborn things.” One of the major talents in modern cinema, the Mexican-born del Toro has directed a variety of memorable films, from comics adaptations (Hellboy and Blade II) to fantasy and horror (The Devil’s BackbonePan’s Labyrinth), all of which have been critically acclaimed. His breakout debut film, Cronos, began his long association with favorite actor Ron Perlman, who returned for Hellboy 2. His most recent film is 2013’s summer blockbuster Pacific Rim. He is currently adapting his novel The Strain as a television series, due to premiere in Summer of 2014 on FX. His most revered monsters are Frankenstein’s monster and the Creature from the Black Lagoon, neither of whom are Catholic.
