Reviews

"The book manages to break down Del Toro's career into a book that is both informative, engaging and easy to dip into. Casual fans will learn all about his biggest films and more, and hardcore fans should love it." * Cryptic Rock *
"It's the type of book that will give you endless "oh, did you know..." ammunition for any conversation on his work...a beautifully put together book that would grace any bookcase or coffee table..." -- Clare Hemsworth * Fandemonium Network *
"The photos alone are enough for a fan to covet this fine book (which comes in its own slipcase), but Nathan's essays also help tie together Del Toro's career, making an argument for him as a rare artist with a cohesive, personal vision and style." -- Jeffrey M. Anderson * Combustible Celluloid *
"For those looking for examinations of del Toro's narrative techniques and stylistic and creative choices, they will not be disappointed with critical and honest analysis that Nathan provides." * Conskipper.com *
"...this is a terrific book with insightful, eloquent writing from Nathan that fed my artistic soul." -- Michele Galgana * ScreenRant.com *
"...full of interesting stories and full-colour stills and behind the scenes photos from the movies. It's a fun coffee table book that would make a good gift for someone interested in Del Toro's work, or filmmaking in general." -- Jennifer Muirhead * WeekendNotes.com *
"Despite being unofficial and unauthorized, this comprehensive volume blooms with gorgeous, sometimes grotesque imagery and knowledgeable, occasionally indulgent reverence for del Toro's estimable body of work." -- Mark Burger * YES Weekly *
