Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities premieres on Netflix on Oct. 25, 2022. Review by Kenneth Seward Jr.
Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities offers horror fans a few unique thrills. While the assorted monsters are well designed, it’s the creepy atmosphere and haunting visuals that usually sell the horror. Most of what’s presented is conceptually sound and the cast of each episode provide some solid performances. That said, the uneven quality of the stories proves that even del Toro couldn’t escape the difficulties typically associated with horror anthologies. Some episodes are certainly better than others.
