Netflix Has Released First “Cabinet of Curiosities” Trailer
After our first look at Rupert Grint in Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities back in August, we finally have a full trailer of the horror anthology series, which is set to challenge our perceptions of the horror genre through eight individual stories. It will cover themes of magic and gore, as well as two retellings of classic H.P. Lovecraft short stories.
Grint’s episode is called “Dreams in the Witch House” and is one of these retellings. He’ll star alongside Ismael Cruz Cordova (The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power) and Geena Davis (The Fly). Lovecraft’s original version of the story tells the tale of a math student who moves into a cursed attic room and starts hallucinating a world of shapes and colors, which quickly turns into a dark and cult-like underworld. In the trailer, this world seems to have been translated into the misty forest that we see Grint running through. Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think Grint is up to.
As part of the trailer, we also now know the release date of each episode. The show will debut as a part of Netflix’s spooky Netflix & Chills event, with its first two episodes – “The Murmuring” and “The Autopsy” – on October 25 and two episodes debuting every day after that until the final two episodes – “Graveyard Rats” and “Some Other Animal’s Meat” – on October 28. Grint’s episode will be released on October 27 alongside “The Viewing.”
Del Toro is also set to act as a host for the show as he does in the trailer, introducing us to the characters and their stories throughout the anthology.
