Guillermo del Toro's movies are characterized by the appearance of fantastic and imaginative creatures that are essential part of the story.

"To me, monsters are different from anyone" del Toro has said "They’re a spiritual sort of cosmology for me, a thing of beauty. You see in my movies that, for me, monstrosity exists in the human heart, not in appearance.”

Since his first work in Mexican film Cronos, and all the way to his critically aclaimed The Shape of the Water, all his films have unforgetable monsters, which del Toro's creature is the most memorable?

Let me know If I'm missing something. I'm not sure how many Hellboy characters I may add, since most of them are from the comic. The ones included where suggested as the more memorable by some articles.

Interesting poll!

Guillermo del Toro's movies are characterized by the appearance of fantastic and imaginative creatures that are an essential part of the story.

"To me, monsters are different from anyone" del Toro has said. "They’re a spiritual sort of cosmology for me, a thing of beauty. You see in my movies that, for me, monstrosity exists in the human heart, not in appearance.”

Since his first work in the Mexican film Cronos, and all the way to his critically acclaimed The Shape of Water, all his films have had unforgettable monsters. Which of del Toro's creatures is the most memorable?

There is just a typo in the first entry: The Shape of Water (second 'the' should be removed)

'Great poll! My vote: the Faun,

'Well written intro., too. I'd suggest one small edit:

To me, monsters are different from anyone" del Toro has said. "They’re a spiritual sort of cosmology for me, a thing of beauty. You see in my movies that, for me, monstrosity exists in the human heart, not in appearance.”

('Just added a period after "del Toro has said.")

If you fix the punctuation in the text that Peter and ruby noted, I can re-push it for you.
