Guillermo del Toro (Spanish pronunciation: [ɡiˈʝeɾmo ðel ˈtoɾo]; born October 9, 1964) is a Mexican film director, screenwriter, producer, and novelist. In his filmmaking career, del Toro has alternated between Spanish dark fantasy pieces, such as The Devil’s Backbone (2001) and Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), and more mainstream American action movies, such as Blade II (2002) and Hellboy (2004).
Del Toro’s work is characterised by a strong connection to fairy tales and horror, with an effort to infuse visual or poetic beauty. He has a lifelong fascination with monsters, which he considers symbols of great power.
Del Toro is known for his use of insectile and religious imagery, underworld and clockwork motifs, dominant amber lighting, and his frequent collaborations with Federico Luppi, Ron Perlman, and Doug Jones.
