Netflix has dropped a new trailer for forthcoming horror series Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities.
In the trailer, Del Toro tells us mysteriously: “Picture your mind as a cabinet, where you lock up your darkest thoughts and deepest fears.
“What would happen if you open that cabinet for the world to see? We are about to find out.”

A synopsis from Netflix says: “Guillermo del Toro - the master of horror - presents a collection of unprecedented and genre-defining stories that will challenge our traditional notions of horror.
“Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities is an anthology of sinister stories, told by some of today’s most revered horror creators - including the directors of The Babadook, Splice, Mandy, and many more.”
In a previous teaser, Del Toro said the majority of the episodes are the work of talented filmmakers, including Jennifer Kent, whose directorial debut was The Babadook, Ana Lily Amirpour, who wrote and directed A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, and Catherine Hardwicke, the director of Twilight.
He also explained how the series takes on a trick-or-treat format, with plenty of 'surprises' to come.
"Cabinet of Curiosities is a show that I've always wanted to make," Del Toro said in behind-the-scenes snapshots of the show.
"In this anthology, we gave ownership of each episode to the directors. 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."
Guillermo Del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities is out on Netflix on 25 October.
