Del Toro’s Pinocchio Proves You’re Not Ready For His Frankenstein Movie

Writer/director Guillermo del Toro is developing a Frankenstein remake for Netflix, and his harrowing take on Pinocchio with the 2022 stop-motion movie proves audiences aren't ready for it. Del Toro is a filmmaking auteur who has always created fantastical romance movies and monster flicks that are oddly melancholic and introspective. While most monster movies aim to scare their audiences, del Toro has always aimed to make his audiences empathize with the beasts and find beauty in them, whether it's the faun in Pan's Labyrinth or Amphibian Man in The Shape of Water.
