Castle Freak (1995)
Directed by Stuart Gordon
An American family inherits an Italian castle which houses a bloodthirsty monster in Stuart Gordon's 1995 creature feature loosely based - of course - on an H.P. Lovecraft story. Gordon's favorite lead actor Jeffrey Combs (RE-ANIMATOR) stars as John, a man involved in an accident that claimed his son's life. Grieving and troubled, the family's unprepared for another blast of horror when the deformed beast starts prowling the halls. Gordon's underrated film is anchored by a dark, serious tone that's unlike his more tongue-in-cheek efforts, but still just as scary.

Horror movie about hide and seek. The acting is fine, the scares are decent, the premise is silly. 3 out of 5 skulls.
Amazing what they accomplished on half a shoestring but the plot is thin.
i loved this movie. I loved the medieval atmosphere, the crazy housekeeper at the beginning and the creature who never had a chance. the only thing i didn't like was the wife's indifference to the husband. i wish he wouldn't have had to perish at the end. good movie overall.
