Guillermo del Toro : "Bride of Frankenstein is absolutely perfect. It has the innocence and beauty of a fairy tale, but has the darkness of a gothic horror tale. So the combination is irresistible." [On hearing that Hellboy comics creator Mike Mignola also named Bride of Frankenstein among his favorite films, del Toro said with a smile, "Well, we are alike in some aspects."]
Guillermo del Toro : "And [lastly] probably City Lights by Chaplin, because this is absolute a pinnacle of filmmaking. You have precision comedy, precision filmmaking, and one of the best directors ever. He and Buster Keaton were fantastic, and they were two of my idols."
