Guillermo del Toro
I think there are movies that are so gigantic that you need a second unit.
I was part of a group that had a cinema club so every week we would project two or three movies on 16 or 35mm.
They’re getting more and more experience on what to expect, and the Hellboy audience is such a faithful and fanatic audience as I am, and you have to really be very open about what you do.
I’m a lapsed altar boy.
I was directing before I knew it was called that.
I think that The Eye is a particularly Americanized take on horror.
I started when I was eight, doing super 8 films.
Well I think effects are tools.
In that, Blade 2 is very much like a rock concert… if it’s too loud, you’re too old.
I like John Carpenter. I like some of his films more than others.
I like actors that are good with pantomime and that can transmit a lot by their presence and attitude more than through their dialogue.
For eight years I did effects for other movies until I got my movie made.
There are two levels of vampirism: one is the regular vampire, which is just like it has always been; and then there’s the super vampires, which are a new breed we’ve created.
It’s only in modern times that we have come to glorify vampirism.
Hellboy is the first movie where both ends of the spectrum are combined.
