'Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities'

Netflix

You may not be able to believe it, but Halloween is once again right around the corner, and with it will come Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities. Netflix announced the eight-episode anthology series will debut with the first two episodes on Oct. 25 and then, unlike the streamer's usual binge model, it will drop two new episodes every day up to and including Oct. 28. 

Each episode is a unique tale with a different cast and director. Although del Toro acted as a curator for these stories, he wanted the directors to be able to share their visions. You can see some of that come to life in a new behind-the-scenes featurette for the show, below.

"With Cabinet of Curiosities, we set out to showcase the realities existing outside of our normal world: the anomalies and curiosities. We hand-picked and curated a group of stories and storytellers to deliver these tales, whether they come from outer space, supernatural lore, or simply within our minds," del Toro said in a statement. "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."

Cabinet of Curiosities is created by del Toro, who also hosts the series and co-showruns with J. Miles Davis. Gary Ungar also executive produces, and Regina Corrado serves as co-executive producer. 

Read on for the individual episode credits, in alphabetical (not necessary streaming) order; no confirmation has come from Netflix yet on which episodes will drop on which days.
