Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities receives trailer and release date

Guillermo del Toro is one of the most imaginative creators in entertainment. The Oscar-winning director is a master of fairy tales and horror, so it’s appropriate that his next project will air during the Halloween season. The latest creation from the mastermind himself is titled Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities.

The anthology includes eight horror stories that promise to be equal parts sinister and scary. Cabinet of Curiosities will stream on Netflix starting October 25 with two episodes. Two more episodes will debut daily through October 28. In a clip released by Netflix, del Toro’s mission as creator of the series is to show that the world is “beautiful and horrible at exactly the same time.”


Del Toro shares that the stories in Cabinet of Curiosities will revolve around curiosities and anomalies. “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,” said del Toro in a statement.

Serving as the co-showrunner alongside del Toro is J. Miles Dale, who co-produced the Academy Award-winning The Shape of Water. Each episode has a different director to put their unique spin on these horror tales. The list of directors includes Jennifer Kent (The Babadook ), David Prior (The Empty Man), Panos Cosmatos (Mandy), and Guillermo Jorge Navarro Solares (cinematographer on del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth).

In addition to the directors, the cast will be different for each episode as well. Featured performers include Andrew Lincoln, F. Murray Abraham, Glynn Turman, Tim Blake Nelson, Essie Davis, Elpidia Carrillo, Crispin Glover, Sofia Boutella, and Rupert Grint.

The first two episodes of Cabinet of Curiosities premiere on October 25 on Netflix, with two additional episodes streaming daily through October 28.

All the Saw movies, ranked from worst to best
Billy the Puppet from the Saw franchise.

This weekend, Saw X is out in theaters and the latest sequel is keeping the legacy of Jigsaw alive. Or we could call it a "midquel" if you prefer, because the film's story is set between Saw and Saw II. Since the first movie's debut in 2004, Saw has proven to be one of the most resilient and best franchises in horror alongside The Conjuring and Insidious. Not even killing off the main character has prevented Lionsgate from revisiting Jigsaw and his apprentices again and again. The movies have even made Jigsaw's puppet, Billy (pictured above), into one of the franchise's most iconic creations.

Now that Saw X has arrived, this is the perfect opportunity to rank all 10 of the movies in the Saw franchise. There's definitely a dramatic drop in quality from the worst film to the very best. But it's also worth saying that Saw X offers some promising signs that the filmmakers may have finally recognized why the franchise was floundering and come up with some ideas as to how it might continue beyond its 20th anniversary next year.

The 10 most popular shows on Max right now
A promotional image from HBO's Savior Complex.

The latest update of the 10 most popular shows on Max has arrived, and for the third week in a row, the original animated series Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake is No. 1 on the list, thanks in large part to a fresh episode of the show. However, this week marks the first time that three of the AMC+ shows on loan to Max have dropped out of the top 10. So Killing Eve, Interview with the Vampire, and Gangs of London are out, while TLC reality shows like Welcome to Plathville and Sister Wives are in. That really puts the Discovery in Warner Bros. Discovery.

This week's biggest addition is the HBO documentary Savior Complex, which debuted at No. 3. Meanwhile, the racy British dating show Naked Attraction remains near the top spot at No. 2. Never say that sex doesn't sell, because it clearly does. As of September 29, these are the 10 most popular shows on Max right now.
