Guillermo del Toro has shared a first look at Cabinet of Curiosities, his upcoming horror anthology series debuting on Netflix this Halloween.

The eight-part series will include two original stories from del Toro himself and will debut on October 25 with a special four-day, double-episode Netflix & Chills Halloween event. The collection promises to “challenge our traditional notions of horror” and promises everything “[f]rom macabre to magical, gothic to grotesque or classically creepy,” with the likes of Rupert Grint, Andrew Lincoln, Crispin Glover, Eric Andre and more starring across the eight episodes.

“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. “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.”
