For eight seasons, Andrew Lincoln has cast “The Walking Dead’ before finally turning his back on the zombie hit in the opening episodes of Season 9. In 2023 he will finally make his long-awaited comeback as Rick Grimes in the mini-series spin-off “Rick & Michonne”. Even before that – actually in a few weeks – Lincoln can be seen in a brand new horror series, which already causes a lot of disgust and goosebumps in the trailer.
Andrew Lincoln is part of the ensemble cast of the anthology series “Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet Of Curiosities”, which also includes such illustrious names as “Robocop” Peter Weller, Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham (“Amadeus”), ” Shadow And Bone” Mage Ben Barnes, “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” Elf Ismael Cruz Córdova, “Harry Potter’ fan favorite Rupert Grint and ‘Legion’ star Dan Stevens.
As the official title of the series already makes clear, it was developed by exceptional director and Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”, “Shape Of Water”), who also introduces each episode as narrator and contributed the story to two of the episodes himself (including the one in which Andrew Lincoln plays one of the main roles).
Otherwise, various genre experts are responsible for the screenplay and direction, who are just as well-known as the cast – from Vincenzo Natali (“Cube”) and Ana Lily Amirpour (“A Girls Walks Home Alone At Night”) to David Prior (” The Empty Man”) and Catherine Hardwicke (“Twilight”) to Jennifer Kent (“The Babadook”) and Panos Cosmatos (“Mandy”).
In total, “Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet Of Curiosities” (initially) consists of eight completed horror stories, which are published in a somewhat unusual way for Netflix: Beginning October 25, 2022, two episodes of Cabinet Of Curiosities will be released on Netflix for four consecutive days – a perfect introduction and prelude to the Halloween celebrations at the end of the month.
