Creepy creatures have never looked this good.
On Monday, Netflix debuted a first look at the upcoming horror anthology series “Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities”, bringing together some of the best minds in the genre.
The series is premiering as a four-day event, with double features dropping each night, all hosted by the Oscar-winning “Pan’s Labyrinth” director.
Each episode is helmed by a different acclaimed horror director, including “The Babadook” director Jennifer Kent, “Splice” director Vincenzo Natali and more.
“With ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’, we set out to showcase the realities existing outside of our normal world: the anomalies and curiosities. We hand-picked and curated a group of stories and storytellers to deliver these tales, whether they come from outer space, supernatural lore, or simply within our minds,” del Toro said. “Just in time for Halloween, each of these eight tales is a fantastical peek inside the cabinet of delights existing underneath the reality we live in.”
The first look video highlights the detailed and terrifying practical creature effects that will bring each story to life.
