Netflix Orders Guillermo del Toro Horror Anthology Series 10 After Midnight

Netflix Orders Guillermo del Toro Horror Anthology Series 10 After Midnight

In this new genre-defining anthology series, acclaimed Academy Award-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro will present a collection of personally curated stories, that are both equally sophisticated and horrific.

In the meantime: ya think del Toro will do a Lovecraftian episode? Del Toro will be working on the series predominately as a producer, but it is said he will write and direct "selected episodes", as well as be hand-selecting writers and directors from the horror world as well as new up-and-coming talent to work on the show.

Guillermo del Toro, creator of Netflix's Emmy-winning DreamWorks Trollhunters, is expanding his collaboration with the Internet TV network to live-action. For 10 After Midnight, he will re-team with his Shape of Water producer J. Miles Dale, who will serve as an executive producer along with Gary Ungar.

No word on an official release date or episode descriptions yet but hopefully one episode will take place in del Toro's home.

Those comments were echoed by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson who told parliament that regime change in Iran was not a policy Britain should pursue.

The series arrives after Hulu recently confirmed its Jason Blum horror anthology, with each new feature film-length installment debuting monthly starting in October.

For many cinephiles, del Toro is already a household name. His most recent film won four awards at this year's Oscars, including Best Production Design, Best Original Score, Best Director, and Best Picture, which is the top prize. He created the FX series The Strain, which wrapped up previous year after running for four seasons. For fans of del Toro's works, it'll certainly be exciting to see how the director plans to approach a streaming platform, where binge-watching is the norm.

This sounds like the ideal format for del Toro, who has always tried to use his name to help other burgeoning talents whether it was J.A. Bayona on The Orphanage or Andres Muschietti on Mama.

Deadline reports that the streaming giant has hired Del Toro to act as the guiding light behind its first original horror anthology series. As always, if you have anything to share, feel free to sound them off in the comments section below!
