An intriguing horror anthology drama series is debuting on Netflix this week.
Starting on Tuesday, October 25, the streaming service will debut Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities, which is scheduled to make its debut as a four-day double-episode event. The series — formerly titled Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight — is described as a live-action genre-defining and chilling collection of distinct stories. It is created and executive produced by del Toro, who is also serving as a co-showrunner.
The series is a collection of unprecedented and genre-defining stories meant to challenge our traditional notions of horror. From macabre to magical, gothic to grotesque or classically creepy, these eight equally sophisticated and sinister tales (including two original works by del Toro) will be brought to life by a team of writers and directors personally chosen by del Toro.
It stars Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham (Thir13en Ghosts), The Walking Dead alum Andrew Lincoln, Ben Barnes (Shadow and Bone), and Tim Blake Nelson (Watchmen). Joining them are Elpidia Carrillo, Essie Davis, Hannah Galway, Crispin Glover, Demetrius Grosse, David Hewlett, Luke Roberts, Sebastian Roché, Glynn Turman, Peter Weller and more.
The directorial lineup includes Panos Cosmatos, Jennifer Kent, Vincenzo Natali, Ana Lily Amirpour, Catherine Hardwicke, Guillermo Navarro, David Prior, and Keith Thomas, with Cosmatos, Kent, and Natali also set to write singular episodes. As for the writers, Haley Z. Boston, Regina Corrado, David S. Goyer, Lee Patterson, Aaron Stewart-Ahn, and Mika Watkins have been tapped to pen episodes of the series.
Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities is executive produced by Oscar-winner J. Miles Dale (Sex/Life), who is also set as the showrunner and will be reuniting with del Toro following 2017’s The Shape of Water. Executive producers are Gary Ungar and Regina Corrado.
