‘The Shape Of Water’ Director Guillermo Del Toro Is Making A Horror Series For Netflix

We're already terrified.

Acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro has inked a deal with Netflix to create a horror anthology series, and I’m already terrified.

According to Deadline, the series will be titled Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight, and is being billed as “a collection of the Oscar-winning filmmaker’s personally curated stories… equally sophisticated and horrific”.

Can’t wait to watch!

Del Toro, whose credits include The Shape of Water, Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim, will write and direct a number of episodes, while hand-picking a team of “top horror writers and new filmmakers” to bring the remaining stories to life.

The director already has a relationship with Netflix via his work on the animated kids show Trollhunters. I suspect this will be pitched at a slightly older audience, though.
