For fans of Guillermo del Toro, it's his fantastical, escapist settings that are often looked out for. Matched with his superb mastery of colors with creeping dread, we study his chromatic language.
Major influences of del Toro oeuvre are manga, comic books, horror movies, and his native Mexican culture. The filmmaker does not shy away with color, in fact, he uses them boldly, while still holding a sense of harmony and balance. In this video are some of his palettes and how he utilizes polarized, complementing colors and more.
