    Now here’s a real haunted house for movie lovers. For a special feature on our Blu-ray and DVD editions of his film Cronos, Guillermo del Toro invited us inside his phantasmagorically decorated home offices, which the director has nicknamed Bleak House. The gothic work space features his personal collection of all sorts of curious memorabilia and creepy-crawlies. Del Toro says he created it as a “compression chamber” where his coworkers and collaborators could be artistically stimulated. But it’s also just full of really cool stuff. Check out two and a half minutes from del Toro’s tour here.

    Ronald Coleman, Olive Films are releasing the Quiet Man in January with a 4K restoration. Of course the Criterion treatment would've been better, but this should be a definite improvement over the notoriously dull colours of the DVD.

    Anyone else notice the TV in the screening room? It was showing the menu for the Criterion edition of Lars Von Trier's 'Europa'! Del Toro is a fan just like us!

    All those DVDs...it makes my heart weep with joy. Also, that is an incredible house. Definitely my favorite contemporary director, with Michel Gondry a close second.
