Guillermo del Toro Is Doing a Horror Anthology for Netflix

The Oscar-winning director is returning to his spooky roots

Liam Mathews

If you were Guillermo del Toro and you were coming off a Best Picture Oscar and the world was your sexy oyster, what would be the first thing you do? Finally make At the Mountains of Madness? Take a trip to Disneyland? Or produce a horror anthology series for Netflix?

If you answered the latter, you might be the monster man himself, because the streaming service announced a new series Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight on Monday.

Described as a "genre-defining anthology series," 10 After Midnight finds del Toro getting his Hitchcock on as he presents "a collection of personally curated stories, that are both equally sophisticated and horrific."

Del Toro will write and direct certain episodes, as well as pick the writers and directors for the rest of them. Our wish list includesGet Out's Jordan Peele, It Comes at Night's Trey Edward Shults, The Invitation's Karyn Kusama and Gerald's Game's Mike Flanagan, just FYI.

This is del Toro's second collaboration with Netflix. He also created the animated series Trollhunters, which returns for a third and final season May 25.
