Horror month continues! This week we’re looking at an Oscar-winning director primarily known for delving into the worlds of ghosts and monsters, Guillermo del Toro.

Jay and Richard were joined by Courtney, Nick and James to discuss del Toro’s non-franchise films, whilst also touching on the importance of a good internet connection, painful whiskey drinking and proper beam structures to support large quantities of water.
