Episode 083- We Need to Talk About Guillermo

If director Guillermo del Toro didn’t exist, we horror fans would have had to invent him.

He’s a true lifelong fan himself, who brought his unique style and passion to horror films, and his love for monsters paid off when The Shape of Water won Best Picture in 2017. 

So…why is there so little conversation about Guillermo del Toro in the horror community?

Has the man who makes horror films as love letters to the Outsider been branded an outsider because of mainstream success?

Join me and my guest, John Arminio, as we look at some of del Toro’s films to remind ourselves of the genre-bending richness and the pure, joyous fun of them.

All hail hybrid vigor!

I hope you enjoy the show!
