Offering a multifaceted approach to the Mexican-born director Guillermo del Toro, this book examines his many roles: as special effects meister, screenwriter, comic fan and horror guru. The contributors marshal their expertise in the fields of horror, fantasy and the gothic, and Spanish and Latin American cinema to provide a comprehensive account of Del Toro's work and its impact on Mexican, Spanish, and American film production. Examining his wide-ranging oeuvre (fiction writing, filmmaking, special effects), the contributors trace the connections between his Spanish language and English language commercial and art film projects.
