Acclaimed Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is known for dabbling in Spanish or English-based movies of dark fantasy, fairy tales, Gothic horror and sci-fi. Many people will recognize some of his famous works like 'Pan's Labryth' and 'Hellboy.' Fans of Guillermo del Toro may be interested in the 'At Home with Monsters' exhibition being held at LACMA -- the Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art.

The basis of the exhibit is to give visitors insight in to the director's creative process. The venue hosts a variety of his collection of paintings, costumes, books, props and many other items. del Toro describes the exhibition as "a devotional sampling of the enormous love that is required to create, maintain, and love monsters in our lives."

The curious collection and the fame of Guillermo del Toro is an incentive for avid film and monster lovers to attend the LACMA. The At Home with Monsters exhibition is also timely as del Toro's new book of the same name is about to be released.
