Some fans will simply light up the minute they hear Guillermo del Toro’s name mentioned. Who can blame them?
The Mexican filmmaker has delivered such beloved efforts as Pan’s Labyrinth, The Devil’s Backbone, Crimson Peak, and the Hellboy movies. He even took home an Oscar for Best Picture with The Shape of Water.
Since then he has impressed with the gothic noir Nightmare Alley but audiences will no doubt be thrilled to learn he’s diving back into horror for Cabinet of Curiosities, an anthology series.
The project is based on his short story of the same name and Guillermo has gathered some of the genre’s most exciting names to helm some nightmare fuel.
Cabinet of Curiosities premieres with the first two episodes on Netflix on Tuesday, October 25th 2022.

Guillermo isn’t directing any of the episodes himself but episodes 1 and 3 are based on original stories that he wrote.
Although fans will be disappointed he’s not at the helm, they won’t be for long because there are some serious talents in the director’s chair (in brackets are movies they have directed):
The first look at the series has been released and allows Guillermo to explain a little more about the project:
“In this anthology, we gave ownership of each episode to the directors. Each of the episodes has a whole world. They present you with different delights; some are savoury, some are sweet. You get a surprise from each of the bites.”
He adds: “We wanted to create beautiful, practical creatures. With all the artistry that goes into creating a great monster, we achieve some of the most remarkable images in the series.”
Cabinet of Curiosities begins premiering on Netflix on Tuesday, October 25th 2022.
