He directs horror films, is what I was going for with the title – I was doing a Simpsons Halloween special credits thing, you know, trying to be amusing. And yes, I suppose you could probably describe his work more accurately as dark fantasy, but…
Yeah, anyway, my point.
This weekend sees the release of Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro’s new film, in both the US and UK. (And possibly some other countries as well.)
Ahead of this, writing for the Ann Arbor Review, I’ve re-watched some of his biggest films – Mimic, Hellboy and the majestic Pan’s Labyrinth, which I was surprised to learn is only 7 years old, such is it’s status as a modern era classic.
I’ve reviewed the trio, looking at their strengths and weaknesses against each other, to help you decide whether you should spend your hard-earned money on his new release.

Love the Simpsons Horror-fied name! And I’d forgotten he directed Pan’s Labyrinth. That was a cool movie.
Sorry for taking so long to reply – I’ve fell a little behind in looking after the blog, and I’ve had more spam than normal recently as well.
I love Pan’s Labyrinth, such a creepy film.
