Stephen King Has High Praise For ‘Cabinet Of Curiosities’

by Thomas Tuna

Sounds like a Mutual Admiration Society (horror division) is forming here.

Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities–an eight-episode horror series that runs on Netflix from today until Friday, Oct. 28–already has a huge fan from a pretty fair country writer. Check out the tweet from horror master Stephen King–courtesy of CinemaBlend–on this page.

King calls the series–created and hosted by del Toro and led by showrunner J. Miles Dale–“scary, sinister and beautiful to look at.” And–for his part–del Toro has already said he would “kill” for the chance to helm a big-screen adaptation of King’s Pet Sematary. So, will this wedding made in horror heaven ever get to the altar? Stay tuned.

The eight original stories that make up Cabinet of Curiosities range from “magical to macabre, gothic to grotesque or classically creepy,” according to the logline. The storytellers, del Toro said, have been “hand-picked to deliver these tales–whether they come from outer space, supernatural lore or simply from within our minds.”

The stories–including two by del Toro himself–include Dreams in the Witch House, Graveyard Rats, Lot 36, Pickman’s Model, The Autopsy, The Murmuring, The Outside and The Viewing.
