Director Guillermo del Toro is undeniably one of the most gleefully geeky directors working in Hollywood. His love of horror, fantasy, and the history of cinema blends effortlessly into his works, just as his painstaking attention to detail demonstrates his true care for the world of movies. Andy Richter of the Conan O’Brien Show recently visited the Pan’s Labyrinth director’s wondrous and bizarre “Bleak House,” more akin in many ways to a museum than a humble abode.
From a massive Boris Karloff head as Frankstein’s Monster greeting guests in the foyer to incredibly detailed, life-sized recreations of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen poe in the den, del Toro’s locale proves the director’s inspirations (and creations) are truly dear to him. See the full tour below, with a countless number of classic cinematic artifacts and recreations — along with Andy’s cameraman accidentally breaking an object.
