"Each of the episodes has a whole world - they present you with different delights. Some are savory, some are sweet. You get a surprise from each of the bites." Netflix has unveiled a new "first look" teaser trailer for Guillermo del Toro's horror anthology series coming to Netflix this October. The full title is Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities, based on his own short story. This anthology of sinister stories is told by some of today’s most revered horror creators, including the directors of The Babadook, Splice, Mandy, and more. It features eight unique horror stories that challenge the classical horror genre. In this new teaser trailer, GdT discuses how he wants to say with this series that "the world is world beautiful and horrible – at exactly the same time" allowing various directors total freedom to tell scary stories. They've focused and worked on building practical monsters and making them feel real and scary, which is especially thrilling in a world where everything is most CGI these days. Yeah this looks fantastic!! Every single first look in here is chilling. I'm especially excited for the Panos Cosmatos & Catherine Hardwicke films. What about you?
