Guillermo Del Toro advises fans of his series to read this book


This time, there it is. After a long wait, Guillermo Del Toro’s series, Cabinet of Curiosity is available on Netflix. An ideal timing for this program which arrives a little before Halloween and should please subscribers.

“I have always dreamed of making an anthology series

To promote the series, Netflix organized a meeting between Guillermo Del Toro and the co-writer of The Midnight Club, Mike Flanagan. During this discussion, the latter asked the Mexican director, what is the book that every fan of the horror genre should read?

The filmmaker was quick to respond and said:

Frankenstein. The beauty of Frankenstein is that it’s written by a young girl in her late teens (Mary Shelley Editor’s note) and the questions it asks are relevant. It is a very lively book. This book resonated with me, and it’s something I’d like to address. If you read it at 15 and then at 40, it’s a different book.

Very clearly, Guillermo Del Toro has taste and of course Frankenstein ticks all the boxes he loves, with a mix of sci-fi and horror he particularly enjoys.

During this same interview, this great name in cinema added: “ All my life, what I’ve wanted to do more than anything is an anthology TV series. The first horror book I read was an anthology. I wanted to do an anthology that brought together some of the best books I’ve read, and some new ideas that I wanted to write, because I’ve always loved writing short stories. »

Cabinet of Curiosity is therefore an anthology series of eight episodes. For the occasion, the director has brought together eight big names in the seventh art: Jennifer Kent (Mister Babadook), David Pryor (The Empty Man), Guillermo Navarro (Narcos), Keith Thomas (Firestarter), Panos Cosmatos (mandy), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), Vincenzo Natali (Cube) and Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night).

The series gives pride of place to experienced actors and in particular the French Sofia Boutella, but also Ben Barnes, Essie Davis, Crispin Glover and Andrew Lincoln, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Rupert Grint, Kate Micucci, or Charlyne Yi.
