This year appears to be the year of Guillermo Del Toro. The famed creator is releasing his own dark and macabre look at Pinocchio when that movie releases on Netflix in December of this year. However, that is not the only Netflix property the man is releasing. The first trailer for Cabinet of Curiosities is here. This new series follows the format of the anthology, with each of the eight episodes taking on a life of their own based on the vision of the director taking the lead on their own episodes. This series also brings back Andrew Lincoln to the world of horror. Lincoln stars in an episode called “The Murmuring”, and we are given a first look in the trailer. You can see the trailer below:
From the trailer, and hearing Guillermo Del Toro speaking about this anthology series, it sounds and looks quite twisted. This is certainly going to be anything like his Pinocchio movie. Each of these directors is going to be showcasing their best efforts at making an episode about pure terror and horror. We are not sure who is getting a scalpel in their eye, but that part certainly made us cringe. Andrew Lincoln appears in the episode called “The Murmuring.” Cabinet of Curiosities to be like a horror version of seems The Twilight Zonein a sense.
Each episode of Cabinet of Curiosities contains quite a great cast. “Dreams in the With House” stars Rupert Grint and DJ Qualls, “Graveyard Rats” stars David Hewlett, “Lot 36” stars Tim Blake Nelson and Demetrius Grosse, “Pickman’s Model” stars Ben Barnes and Crispin Glover, “The Autopsy” stars F. Murray Abraham and Glynn Turman, “The Murmuring” stars Essie Davis and Andrew Lincoln, “The Outside” stars Kate Micucci and Martin Starr, and “The Viewing” stars Eric Andre and Peter Weller. These are just some of the amazing cast members involved in each episode of what is likely going to be some blood-curdling horror.
Cabinet of Curiosities will contain eight episodes, all of which have a different director taking the lead on those episodes. Most of these stories have also been written by other creators, though Guillermo Del Toro also has a few that were based on a story he created. “The Murmuring” is based on an original story by Del Toro, which is also the episode that stars Andrew Lincoln. Del Toro might be a fan of the man from his days on The Walking Dead. Quite honestly, who isn’t? Although Lincoln is set to return to the world of The Walking Dead next year, we get to see him in a purely horrific story for this new anthology series on Netflix.
Guillermo Del Toros Cabinet of Curiosities will premiere on Netflix on October 25th with two episodes. Each day after that, two additional episodes will be released. The full eight-episode run of this new series will be fully available by October 28th, which is perfect timing for Halloween. Fans of Guillermo Del Toro and Andrew Lincoln are going to be surprised by this new horror anthology. We certainly can’t wait to see each of these episodes. Hopefully, no one gets nightmares.
