“Cabinet of Curiosities” looks like a horrific series.
Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming Netflix series is “a collection of unprecedented and genre-defining stories that will challenge our traditional notions of horror.”
While that doesn’t give fans much in the way of detail, Netflix’s description adds that it’s a “visually stunning, hair-raising horror collection.”
Well, if the preview is any indication of what fans can expect, it will give people a lot of nightmares.
Say what you will about Netflix or the state of entertainment, but this series looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.
A horror series has to be really good to move the needle, and there’s hardly anyone better at the genre than Del Toro.
He’s the kind of horror that isn’t all slasher stuff and pure gore. Its horror is quite advanced and it looks like that trend will continue with ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’.
Netflix has made successful horror content in the past.
Netflix also has some serious recent successes in the horror genre. The streaming giant released the “Fear Street” trilogy and all three movies were great.
I’d say — and I’m right — that all three movies were among the best movies of 2021. Now Netflix is well back to the horror with ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’.
You can watch the series from October 25. That’s just under a week before Halloween, which should give you plenty of time to get into a spooky mood.
