Guillermo del Toro


Mexican-born filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has created a distinctive cinematic style mixing the world of monster movies, comic books, and exuberant visuals straight from his imagination. He studied under Oscar-winning special effects artist Dick Smith and made his first feature film, Cronos, in 1993. Since then he has directed and produced numerous films in both the United States and Mexico, all of which exhibit his love for outcast monsters who are more than they seem.
