Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities | KT Review

Well, I’ve been saying his name wrong, still, Guillermo del Toro’s series The Cabinet of Curiosities had me transfixed. And I definitely got James Herbert’s The Rat’s vibes in episode 2. Have you had chance to watch this series on Netflix yet? There are a whole host of familiar faces and voices bringing these stories to life and all with their own vibes and appeal. Whether you like your horror modern, twisted, demonic, or familiar, there’s an episode for you.

*Warning: there could be spoilers ahead*

Bizarre nightmares unfold in eight tales of terror in a visually stunning, spine-tingling horror collection curated by Guillermo del Toro.


Starring (amongst many others) Lize Johnston (Army of the Dead, Mira Mira), Rupert Grint (Harry Potter, Sick Note), Peter Weller (RoboCop, Longmire), F. Murray Abraham (Moon Knight, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Andrew Lincoln (Walking Dead, After Life), Kate Micucci (When in Rome, DuckTales), and Essie Davis (The Babadook, Game of Thrones).

Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities Review Conclusion

I would watch it again: I wasn’t entirely sure what was going to emerge from the Cabinet of Curiosities, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Some stories had me engrossed from the get-go, others took a little getting into, but all had a unique appeal, and I would most definitely watch another series. My favourites were The Graveyard Rats and Dreams in the Witch House, which were yours?

With episodes that appealed to most tastes, there were a couple that weren’t really mine -and yet I couldn’t skip a single one because there was a connection between them all that I started watching for as soon as I spotted it. A great series, with a number of scenes burned into my memory for ever more. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
