How To Make A Monster With "Hellboy's" Guillermo del Toro On The New Yorker

It's only Tuesday and already we've already featured several real-life horror stories on the Arts page, with the unfolding story of the Egyptian Museum looting and an article on decaying Detroit. Continuing the vein of darkness, we present you with the New Yorker's video which explores the creative process of Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.

Del Toro was a morbid child, who tortured slugs and practiced black magic. When he became an adult, he went to film school and eventually became a director and producer, whose credits include "Hellboy," "Pan's Labyrinth," and "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark."

Watch the video below to see how del Toro's images go from their initial sketches to their realization onscreen.
