Guillermo Del Toro’s Horror Series Gets A Nightmarish Trailer! [VIDEO]

MOVIE NEWS – “Picture your mind…as a cabinet” – that’s the opening line of Guillermo del Toro’s series of nightmare-inducing stories.



Netflix has released the first full trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities – and it looks like we’ll never close our eyes again…

“Picture your mind…as a cabinet where you lock up your darkest thoughts and deepest fears. What would happen if you opened that cabinet for the world to see? We are about to find out,” Del Toro tells the audience. It’s a bit reminiscent of both Rod Serling in The Twilight Zone and the crypt keeper in Tales from the Crypt.

According to Netflix, the horror anthology is “unprecedented and genre-defining stories meant to challenge our traditional notions of horror. From macabre to magical, gothic to grotesque.”

The horror anthology series, based on Del Toro’s novel of the same name, brings to life the stories of H.P. Lovecraft, Emily Carroll, Michael Shea, Henry Kuttner and Del Toro himself. Each episode tells a gruesome tale, and each is helmed by a different director – Panos Cosmatos (Mandy), Jennifer Kent (The Babadook), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), Keith Thomas (Firestarter), David Prior (The Empty Man), Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night), Vincenzo Natali (Splice) and Del Toro’s frequent collaborator Guillermo Navarro. Each director and writer was hand-picked by Del Toro.

The ensemble cast includes Andrew Lincoln, Ben Barnes, Crispin Glover, Rupert Grint, Kate Micucci, San Stevens, Sofia Boutella, Michael Therriault, Steve Agee, Nia Vardalos, Tim Blake Nelson, Sebastian Roche, Martin Starr, Demetrius Grosse, Oriana Leman and David Hewlett.

Just in time for Halloween, Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities will air two episodes every night from 25 October.
