Last summer of 2016 my friend Guillermo del Toro invited to come over and visit his shooting in Toronto, Canada. I was so flattered to meet him in the middle of the shooting of his brand new movie.
Being on set in such a big and great movie is an experience in itself, and watching the man directing an ambitious movie like that made it an even bigger experience.
I was there for a weekend, but it was so worth it. The studios where the filming was taking place are the same where Guillermo’s TV series -The Strain- takes place, and I am a huge fan of his TV series, so it was a double pleasure to be there.
Now, the movie has just been premiered at the Biennale, the Venezia Film Festival, and very soon will hit the movie theatres, so please, go to your nearest theatre and see the movie when it comes out, of course I will do the same. I was in the shooting but I have not seen the movie yet.
I loved being behind the camera along with Guillermo, and I’m sure you’ll love the movie too, and I will love it as well.
Now, please, read the magnificent reviews from the main movie magazines:
