The freak is back...
...We've been holding our breath for our any new looks at the upcoming reimagining of director Stuart Gordon's Castle Freak (1995), and now we have our first trailer for the film, coming this December!
RLJE Films has released an intriguing trailer for the remake, which is directed by Tate Steinsiek and written by Kathy Charles. Produced by Barbara Crampton, star of the original film, this new take appears to take on a much more Lovecraftian feel, and I am here for it!
In the new Castle Freak:
"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."
The film stars Clair Catherine, Jake Horowitz (The Vast of Night), Chris Galust (Give Me Liberty), Kika Magalhaes (The Eyes of My Mother), Emily Sweet (Syn), Elisha Pratt (True Detective) and Omar Brunson (Shadow Fighter), with a score composed by Fabio Frizzi (The Beyond and Kill Bill).
Castle Freak comes to Shudder on December 3rd and VOD/Digital on December 4th from RLJE Films.
