At Home With Monsters

Guillermo Del Toro makes movies that make money, and so, Guillermo Del Toro makes money, and when you make money, you can start collecting things, and so, Guillermo Del Toro did that.

This is too bad because it was utterly brilliant and worthy of so much more than social media exploitation.
