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, 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.
