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.

An American family inherits an Italian castle which houses a bloodthirsty monster.

Cast: Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, Jonathan Fuller

The freak in the sheet was super disgusting, and that’s cool and all, but the movie as a whole kinda stinks.

Really liked this, had a weird gothic feel. I remember the cover from video stored in the 90's.

Don't let its direct-to-video status turn you off. Stuart Gordon's third Lovecraft adaptation, loosely based on a short story called "The Outsider", boasts some strong makeup/practical effects and a nuanced performance from Jeffrey Combs. I do wish Barbara Crampton had more to do than scream and hide, though.
