The remake of Stuart Gordon’s 1995 Castle Freak has received it’s first trailer. While, there are all the beats that we would expect from Castle Freak, this version also looks like it’s is going to explore the source material a lot more than the first film did. Barbara Crampton acted along side Jeffery Combs in the first film is back as a producer on this one.
Castle Freak tells the story of:
After she’s permanently blinded in a tragic car accident, Rebecca’s receives some bizarre news: her long-lost-mother has recently passed away, leaving her their family’s ancestral castle. Traveling to the estate with a group of friends, Rebecca hopes it will be an opportunity for her to reconnect with a past she never knew—and a mother who seemingly left her behind. When mysterious happenings begin to occur and her friends begin to die, Rebecca must unravel her family’s mysterious history before she too falls prey to the Castle Freak.
Gordon’s original Castle Freak starred Barbara Crampton and Jeffrey Combs and was based on H.P. Lovecraft’s The Outsider. This re-imagining seems to be digging into that Lovecraft lore more than Gordon’s did. But, we will have to wait to see the final product before we can say for sure.
