Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosites is coming out on Netflix, and it looks absolutely amazing! The horror anthology will release two episodes a day, until October 28 with 8 episodes total. The twist is, it features a different director for every episode, all under the umbrella of del Toro.
Netflix has a pretty good track record for horror releases, the best of which in my opinion is still the Haunting of Hill House series. Now they even brought in the big guns, with Guillermo del Toro taking charge in Netflix's new "Cabinet of Curiosities" Horror anthology. This series looks like it has the potential for greatness, with multiple standalone stories.
Netflix increasing their Horror library sure sounds promising:
The first two episodes release today, October 25, with more episodes coming every day. Del Toro will be moderating the stories, in a similar fashion to the classic "Twilight Zone" format, but was also involved in the writing and directing of multiple episodes. The special thing about Cabinet of Curiosities, though, is that each episode is directed by a different person.
Don't know if Amazon can compete:
Cabinet of Curiosities | Netflix's Most Ambitious Horror Project Yet
When it comes to the production of this show, Netflix didn't pull any punches. The cast looks phenomenal, not only for the actors, but also the directors. We have many familiar faces among the cast, like Andrew Lincoln ("The Walking Dead"), Rupert Grint ("Harry Potter"), Sofia Boutella ("The Mummy") and Ben Barnes ("The Punisher").
When it comes to the directors, we have people like Jennifer Kent ("The Babadook"), David Prior ("The Empty Man") and Ana Lily Amirpour ("A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night"). All of them established directors with experience in the horror genre and all with different approaches to scare the living sh*t out of you.
If you're still hesitant: even Stephen King, the King of Horror himself, gave this series his stamp of approval via Twitter. So you should only hesitate if you're an anxious type of person. That would pretty much only make it fun for the people you are watching the show with.
I strongly advise you to open Guillermo del Toro's CABINET OF CURIOSITIES, starting tomorrow on Netflix. Scary, sinister, and beautiful to look at.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) October 24, 2022
Don't know what to expect, now that even King describes this series as scary! From what was shown in the trailer, the show definitely looks sinister and beautiful, so I'm definitely going to check it out.
Nothing better to get myself in the mood for Halloween, than a Horror anthology like this. I just wish I had a better TV, to watch it on...
