Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities Review 2022 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew

Episodic anthology series have been back on the rise as of late, particularly in the horror genre. Shows like Black Mirror (2011-) attracted viewers because they didn’t have to commit to having to watch a full season in order, but could instead cherry-pick individual episodes that sounded interesting. This format is perfect for viewers with limited time or attention spans because it tells a complete tale in just one episode, compared to having to watch 8 episodes in order. The Twilight Zone was one of the first well-known anthology series and was popular enough to have three separate revivals, with the most recent one being produced and narrated by Jordan Peele.

Known best for his magical and horrific creature-features such as Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), The Shape of Water (2017), and Hellboy (2004), Guillermo Del Toro is no stranger to the entertainment industry. He recently signed a multi-year agreement with Netflix and has collaborated with them on projects like the Tales of Arcadia trilogy: Trollhunters (2016-2018), 3Below (2018-2019) and Wizards (2020). He also delivered a full-length feature film Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans (2021) and is currently working on a stop-motion film, Pinocchio. Most, if not all of his work naturally tends to have a combination of folklore, fairy tales, and horror.

A Cabinet of Curiosities is an old-timey concept, where people would collect unique and notable items to display. More times than not, the “cabinet” was actually more of a room, similar to how The Warrens, the real-life paranormal investigators played by Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson in The Conjuring franchise, had a room in their house filled with possessed and cursed objects.

Now Guillermo Del Toro is presenting his own collection… of horrors! In interviews, he has brought up a book that he created called Guillermo Del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions, which contains an assortment of sketches, illustrations, and thoughts that have never been seen before. This memoir was published in 2013 and now Del Toro is working hard to produce the Netflix horror series alongside producers J. Miles Dale (The Shape of Water) and Gary Ungar (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy).

Originally titled Guillermo Del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight, each of the eight episodes in this series will be created anthology-style, meaning each episode will have a completely different storyline and cast from the others. Del Toro describes the series as genre-defining and meant to challenge traditional notions of horror, with two of the episodes being based on his own original short stories. While we don’t know exactly what these stories will be about yet, we can take a look at the impressive collection of well-known names and faces that we know are working on this series.

Netflix will be streaming the horror anthology starting on October 25, 2022. Unlike most Netflix releases, Cabinet of Curiosities will be released over the course of four days, with the first two episodes releasing on the day of the premiere. After that, Netflix will release the remaining episodes two at a time until the finale on October 28, just in time for Halloween. This four-day release is going to be part of the streaming service’s Netflix and Chills Halloween event.
