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.

The story wasn't that interesting, the performance of the actors was okay (nothing awful but nothing great) and aside from a couple of scenes that slightly made me want to look away because they were gross, I wasn't terrified at all.

Surprisingly good dramatic scene work between the script & the actors, and it delivers satisfyingly on the freaky castle man horror.

Stuart Gordon has run out of ideas.

Really enjoyed it. You really got into the emotions of the characters. The acting is great. I love seeing these actors in so many repeating works of the director. The freak looked super grotesque and I didn’t realize this was loosely based on The Outsider by HP Lovecraft. One of my favorite stories by him. Creative take on the story!
