In a brand new first look along with the one-of-a-kind release details for the anthology, famed director Guillermo del Toro promises that his new series, “Cabinet of Curiosities,” will feature frighteningly gorgeous monsters in the near future. The Mexican director is responsible for a number of critically acclaimed films, including “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “The Devil’s Backbone,” “Crimson Peak,” and “the Hellboy flicks.” Even more impressive is the fact that he was awarded the Academy Award for Best Picture for his work on “The Shape of Water.”
Since then, he has pleased with the gothic noir Nightmare Alley, but audiences will undoubtedly be thrilled to see that he is delving back into the horror genre for Cabinet of Curiosities, which is an anthology series. Guillermo del Toro is using his short tale of the same name as the basis for the project, and he has recruited some of the most fascinating personalities in the horror industry to direct some terrifying material.

Cabinet Of Curiosities Episodes
Each episode will adapt one of the short stories from the book, and as a result, each episode will be directed by a different person. Much like the host of acting skill, the host of directorial talent is astounding. Jennifer Kent, an Australian director who has won multiple awards in the past, will be in charge of the first episode. The Babadook, which Kent directed, is widely regarded as one of the best examples of contemporary horror cinema.
The following individuals will each helm one of the remaining eight episodes of the series in their respective capacities as directors: David Prior (Voir), Guillermo Navarro (Cocaine Godmother), Keith Thomas (Firestarter), Panos Cosmatos (Mandy), Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen), Vincenzo Natali (In the Tall Grass), and Ana Lily Amirpour are some of the directors who have been nominated for the award (A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night).
