Los Angeles, Aug 6 (IANS) Oscar-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro feels director André Ovredal makes very scary movies because he has a great sense of character and humour.
“André has a great sense of character, a great sense of humour, a great sense of pacing, and he makes very scary movies,” said Guillermo, who has backed Ovredal’s upcoming horror thriller, “Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark”.
