Guillermo del Toro loves scary movies, so he's making a bunch of them.

Besides developing a new "Haunted Mansion" movie for Disney, the Oscar winner says he's planning to shoot a horror movie in May, hopes to do a version of "Frankenstein" and is working on an "anthology horror series" for cable TV.

He made the announcements Friday at Comic-Con, where he unveiled another horror flick, "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark."

Del Toro produced the film, which is set for release next year.

Speaking to some 6,000 fans at San Diego's annual pop culture convention, del Toro promised to respond to artists and aspiring filmmakers who submit their work to him. As soon as he said that, a fan gave the director a collection of 1,500 sketches.
