Master of horror and Academy Award-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro will provide fans with another installment of scares with his upcoming project, Cabinet of Curiosities. One of two projects the director is developing with Netflix this fall (the other being the buzzy Pinocchio, set to premiere on the service this December), del Toro serves as executive producer and co-showrunner for the new anthology series.
As one of the genre’s modern icons, del Toro’s talent as a writer and director for horror has been evident through films, television, and video games. From Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy to more sci-fi-oriented ventures like Pacific Rim and the Oscar-winning The Shape of Water, del Toro’s vision for otherworldly tales is unmatched. His legacy is one that goes beyond horror, but Cabinet of Curiosities promises to confirm his ability to spook the viewer to their core.
