First Look at Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities: An Anthology of Halloween Treats


Spooky season is right around the corner, and the folks at Netflix have an awesome treat in store. “Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities” will premiere on the broadcast over the course of four nights before Halloween weekend, delivering chills and thrills curated by one of horror’s modern masters.

The anthology series features eight episodes, each with its own stand-alone story and a different director. Horror anthologies are a time-honored genre tradition dating back to “The Twilight Zone” and “Creepshow,” so a new one directed by Guillermo Del Toro feels like a stroke of genius. The director has created some of the most beautiful and brutal fantasy-horror films of recent decades, including “The Devil’s Backbone,” “Pan’s Labyrinth” and the Academy Award-winning “The Shape of Water,” and two of the eight episodes are new stories straight from his macabre mind, so go for it!

Netflix released a first look that offers a small taste of each of the eight stories, including their titles and the directors taking the reins. Grab some pumpkin spice popcorn and get ready for some serious seasonal fun by checking out the preview below!
