This past May, ITM regaled readers with news that a sizable portion of director Guillermo Del Toro’s macabre collection from his home, Bleak House, was going on tour (read that story here).
Just this week, Conan O’Brien sent his co-host Andy Richter to visit Del Toro and take the cameras inside for a tour of the home and its deliciously dark decor. After admiring the giant sculpt of Boris Karloff from the first Frankenstein film, it was off to the Horror room where both Edgar Allen Poe and H.P. Lovecraft (complete with a hand made 5 o’clock shadow) are quite at home. Along the way several amazing artifacts can be seen including a miniature model of the captain’s bed from Pirates of the Caribbean and several life-size statues from Freaks.
Perhaps the most delightful decor was hidden behind a “secret” book case. On the other side of that book case: the Haunted Mansion room, complete with a custom crafted Hat Box ghost.
The tour ends with a brief rest in the living room to watch “Antique Road Show” with Linda Blair (apparently its her favorite).
