Fans of Guadalajara-born film director Guillermo del Toro who happen to be in Los Angeles this fall should head over to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to see an exhibit featuring around 600 spooky monsters and objects from the filmmaker’s private collection.
Among the standout pieces are full-size replicas of ghoulish creatures featured in his acclaimed movies “Pan’s Labyrinth” and “Crimson Peak.”
The show, that also includes sculptures, paintings, costumes and books, is divided into eight thematic sections. One of these pays homage to the filmmakers, artists and authors (including Edgar Allen Poe and H.P. Lovecraft) who have inspired del Toro’s creative imagination.
The exhibit will be in Los Angeles until November 27, when it will travel to Minneapolis and later Ontario, Canada.
