Castle Rock Maintains Its Creep Factor to the Bitter End!
It took me awhile to get caught up on Castle Rock but it was a worthwhile endeavor. The show’s first season is a masterclass in generated maximum creepiness.
Hulu will be running a very interesting TV spot for Castle Rock during Super Bowl LII – there’s mention of a call from Shawshank; a voice crying out ‘Something is going to happen;’ and another saying, ‘It’s happening!’
Circumstances beyond my control kept me away from the computer Sunday and Monday and wowzers! Here are three things that stood out for me: ABC set a premiere date for its Marvel series, Inhumans; Spike acquired season one of The Shannara Chronicles (which will air after The Mist); Hulu announced the addition of Sissy Spacek and Jane Levy to the cast of Castle Rock.
Hulu had greenlighted Castle Rock – an ongoing psychological-horror series that ‘combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.’
Castle Rock is based on characters and situations created by Stephen King and was created by Sam Shaw & Dustin Thomason, who worked together on the critically acclaimed series Manhattan.
Castle Rockreunites Hulu, King, Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television, which previously collaborated on event series 11.22.63, based on King’s novel. The series will stream exclusively in the U.S. on Hulu and Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution will distribute globally.
