Castle Freak (1995)

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.

Love full moon movies. When i was younger around the time this movie came out i remember staying the night at my grandma's house, and i switched on the syfy channel to see there was a horror movie on. Well back then i was terrified of horror films, but i remembered scenes form this movie, but never knew the title. Now i know it was this movie, and glad i was able to finally see it from start to finish. I do feel bad for Giorgio given his past.

Castle Freak (1995) is a horror movie reinterpretation of H.P. Lovecraft's The Outsider. It is gruesome, gory, and gratuitous in the worst way and though attempting to tell a story about grief and forgiveness, the film ignores the human origin of its monster in favor of a fantasy of undeserved redemption.

It was okay, boring at first but it got good later I guess he just wanted to clap some cheeks 😂

Yeah, it's fine. If like me you were just trawling through the movies for something to watch casually you could do worse. Entertaining enough.
