He talks about his aim to take the gothic romance novel and transport it into the Spanish Civil War. Del Toro was also interested in fusing the war genre with the ghost story. He goes into great detail dissecting the elements of the gothic romance and how it applies to his movie in a very accessible and articulate way. There is not a single lull in this highly engaging and informative track.
