Our 10 Favorite Monsters in Guillermo Del Toro's Films!

In his nearly 30-year career, Guillermo del Toro has become one of the masters of dark fantasy in Hollywood. The Mexican filmmaker, who was influenced by Alfred Hitchcock, has directed and/or produced some of the most memorable sci-fi horror films and ghost stories ever made, including Mimic, The Orphanage and Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. And, he’s back as the executive producer of the scarefest Mama.

Opening this Friday, the film centers on two young girls who wind up stranded in an abandoned cabin where they somehow manage to survive for five years until they are found, as well as the ghostly presence who “mothered” them for five years. It’s the latest creature in del Toro’s long history of bringing to life some of the spooktacular monsters and monstrosities on film. Here’s a look at del Toro’s greatest creations.
