I heard about his crib years ago and was fascinated with the brief description of his lair. Then I read an article which made me dig deeper until I discovered these vids.
There was an article that had a slightly more detailed look at some of his collection, very fascinating shit for a monster/horror geek like myself.
As far as his films being shit, I disagree.
All of his films have a certain charm to them, you can certainly feel he cares for them. But some of them (shit most of the major ones) have been tampered with by the studios. It's widely known that studios always tampered with his films and made them shit, apparently they weren't "hollywood" enough. So they had to change shit around without his wishes.
He's a great storyteller, he's great at drawing you in and caring about the characters because he cares about them deeply. He's also great at drawing good-great performances from his actors, they again genuinely care for the characters and want to do Guillermo proud.
I think he suffers from being to Paul MacCartney-ish, very sappy.
My admiration for him is due to his genuine and shameless love for his projects that's very childlike and almost innocent. I think directors get either to jaded or become too full of themselves at times.
I would love to see him make a straight up horror movie. He is great at setting up suspenseful sequences. I want an old school slasher gory rated R film from him someday. Or him to create a new classic monster that will live in our nightmares forever such as Frankenstein, Freddy, Jason etc.
