In the spirit of the spooky season, Academy Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro will debut the first two episodes of his all-new horror anthology series, “Cabinet of Curiosities,” on Netflix Oct. 25. For the three days that follow, two more episodes will be released each day until all eight episodes are available for streaming.

Del Toro, who directed the Oscar-winning film “The Shape of Water,” is familiar with constructing fear-inducing, grotesque creatures like the Amphibian Man or the Faun in “Pan’s Labyrinth.” The upcoming miniseries will similarly suspend viewers’ disbelief by depicting other-worldly realities and anomalous life forms.

Though del Toro is credited as the writer, executive producer, creator, host and co-showrunner of the series, each of the eight episodes was directed by a different filmmaker and features a unique cast. All of the episodes, though disparate in plot, are connected by a curio cabinet that contains cursed objects associated with eerie stories.

For more Halloween frights, “Conversations With a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes” will be available for streaming Oct. 7 on the coattails of the Sept. 21 premiere of Netflix’s limited series “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.”

“Conversations With a Killer” will take the form of a three-part limited docuseries exploring the criminal’s psyche, rather than functioning as a historical reenactment. In the process, viewers will get to listen to never-before-heard interviews between Dahmer and his defense attorneys as he confesses to his perverted brutality.

The upcoming show is third in a saga of limited docuseries from director Joe Berlinger, who also worked on “Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes” and “Conversations With a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes.”
