Castle Freak

Castle Freak

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.

Not my favorite Stuart Gordon flick but it keeps moving along and is entertaining enough.

I might have given this movie a higher score if I wasn't expecting better. Who can blame me, though? When you see that a movie is written and directed by Stuart Gordon, it stars Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton and is "loosely based - of course - on an H.P. Lovecraft story" you cannot help but spend the entire movie expecting Re-Animator.

Nostalgic, depressing, but scary enough!
