Say what you want about streaming versus the room experience. Something that cannot be denied to Netflix is the almost unconditional support that it has put in some of the best directors of our time to do the projects they have always dreamed of. A new one, which sounds pretty good, will be a horror anthology series called Cabinet of Curiosities that will feature talent personally selected by Mexican Guillermo del Toro.

The Mexican Elpidia Carrillo is one of the actresses in the cast of the long list that also includes Essie Davis, Luke Roberts, Andrew Lincoln, Glynn Turman, Ben Barnes, Hannah Galway, Crispin Glover, Demetrius Grosse, David Hewlett, Tim Blake Nelson, Sebastian Roché, Peter Weller and more.
As we mentioned, some of the episodes will be based on original stories from Jalisco while others will be adaptations from other sources. For example, there will be one that will be from a story by HP Lovecraft and another from one of Henry Kuttner. More details about the plot of each of these eight installments are yet to be revealed. It was also confirmed that production has already started in Toronto, Canada and has been titled as Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight.
In the past, Netflix has had success with anthology shows, the most famous being Black Mirror, with a science fiction theme, or the animated Love, Death & Robots – 73% produced by David Fincher. It is not surprising that for the horror genre Netflix sought to collaborate with Del Toro, who in turn decided to team up with some of the directors who have surprised the most in recent years for their contributions to the genre.

Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth – 95%, Cronos – 89%, The Shape Of Water – 92%) is currently busy with post-production on Nightmare Alley, his next film that will star Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett. The film was intended to premiere at one of the great fall festivals, Toronto or Venice, but it was not yet finished to the director’s satisfaction. However, it maintains its release date for the end of 2021.
This is the Mexican’s second project with the streaming platform. The first, one that he continues to work on and is one of the most anticipated, is his version of Pinocchio. The director prepares a new version of the classic story in stop motion animation that will also be a musical. Hopefully we can see it next year and since we know that Cabinet of Curiosities It is also already in production, it seems that it will not be the only one that will debut in 2022.
