For the week of June 6 - 10, Netflix are showcasing unmissable news, exclusives, and content to speak directly to geeks on a global stage.

Being the proud geeks that we are here at, we're only delighted to have a rummage through the best content being released this week by the streaming giant and plucking the most exciting news for you, our dear readers.

So let's take a dive into Geeked Week and see what we can find.

'Guillermo Del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities'

If you're like us, the moment you hear GDT's name attached to something, you know you're on to a winner. The horror director has carved out such a unique niche over the years and is best known for his gorgeous and grotesque visual style. His best work includes 'Pan's Labrynth' and 'The Shape of Water'.

Netflix have understandably chased down the Mexican director for a project, resulting in the upcoming anthology series. Each episode will feature a different story, introduced by Del Toro himself. The 8-part series will feature big names like Andrew Lincoln, Rupert Grint, Ben Barnes, Sofia Boutella and Crispin Glover.

'The Midnight Club'

If horror is your cup of tea then look no further than Mike Flanagan to get your fix. The director has had a rich run of form on Netflix, bringing horror to the masses with 'The Haunting of Hill House', 'The Haunting of Bly Manor' and 'Midnight Mass'.

Flanagan's next project is based on the Christopher Pike's 1994 novel 'The Midnight Club'. The plot focuses on a group of terminally ill young adults who are all residents of a hospice. Each night they meet up to tell sinister stories and make eternal promises...

The new teaser introduces us to the various central characters. You may also catch the Irish accent of Ruth Codd, who will be making her screen debut on the show. Codd will also star in Flanagan's other upcoming series 'The Fall of the House of Usher'.

'The Imperfects'

This coming-of-(r)age series follows three young adults who were experimented on without their consent and have since gained new abilities as a result.

The group come together to hunt down the scientist who afflicted them with their powers and get revenge. The group features Juan, who can turn into a hyena (pretty cool, if you ask us), Abbi who secretes poisonous slime (way less cool) and Tilda, whose voice can go supersonic (very convenient for the lead singer in a punk band) .

If you like angsty YA stories then this looks like it would be right up your alley.


The creators of one of the best Netflix sci-shows, 'Dark', have teamed up again to bring us this intriguing-looking mystery. The multilingual series follows a group of immigrants who, on their way from Europe to New York, come across a mysterious ship in the middle of the ocean.

The teaser carries a lot of similarities to 'Dark', with complex characters, hidden secrets and an ominous atmosphere. So, with any luck, '1899' will live up to the success of the creator's previous project.

There's still no release date for '1899', but keep checking the website for updates!

'Resident Evil'

Resident Evil has been a staple of the horror genre dating back all the way to 1996 when the first game was released for PlayStation. Since then, it has come in many iterations, from games to movies, comics to novels. Now Netflix has jumped aboard and is releasing their own 'Resident Evil' series this year.

For Netflix however, there are some issues. Since the release of the initial teaser trailer last week, fans of the franchise have been fairly critical about the looseness of the plot mechanics and differences to the original games.

The open-world, uncontained outbreak of the T-virus - the infamous bioweapon which can turn people and animals into monsters - has been criticised for leaning away from the terrifying and claustrophobic horror of what makes 'Resident Evil' so unique. Despite not even being out yet, the show is already being panned as another generic zombie apocalypse show.

Despite the rough first look, let's hope the series can give itself a little justice for its existence. It stars Lance Reddick, so at least it has that going for it.
