“To find beauty in the profane. To elevate the banal. To be moved by genre. These things are vital for my storytelling.” – Guillermo del Toro
Since October 25th, the Art Gallery of Ontario has featured a unique exhibit exploring the creative mind behind one of the most inventive filmmakers of our generation: Guillermo del Toro. Rue Morgue was fortunate enough to attend the exhibit, and we want to send some of our lucky readers in it’s final weeks (on now until January 7th)!
At Home with Monsters is organized thematically, beginning with visions of childhood innocence and the Victorian era; continuing through explorations of death and the afterlife, magic, occultism, alchemy, and monsters; and concluding with a celebration of comics, movies and popular culture. Fans of del Toro can see the props, costumes, and literature behind his filmography, including The Devil’s Backbone, Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, Crimson Peak, and many more.
Comment below describing your favourite scene and/or moment from one of Del Toro’s films for a chance to win tickets! Contest ends Friday Dec 15th.
