There’s too much TV! Hulu’s latest 10-episode original series Castle Rock is a supernatural, horror thriller that comes from the genre’s king, Stephen King (see what I did there?) and JJ Abrahams. With those two leading the charge one thing you are sure to get are high production values and this one doesn’t disappoint on that front. My only gripe is when is Hulu going to get with the times and deliver 4k/HDR quality streaming? The sweeping vistas of King’s small Maine town that this series takes place in would look even more glorious.
A woman walking barefoot in the snow toward a gothic house; a high school mascot waving to a little girl before stepping off the roof of the high school; a woman, holding a knife, looking under her child’s bed…
The new trailer for Hulu’s Castle Rock is filled with moments of impending doom – played low-key, but definitely unsettling.
A family that has suffered a brutal crime is at the heart of Spike’s new series based on Stephen King’s The Mist – as they deal with the aftermath, a strange mist rolls in, cutting them and the town off from anyone and anywhere else.
The first trailer is atmospheric and more than a little graphic (think blood not sex).
Spike (soon to become The Paramount Network) has released the first trailer for its new drama, The Mist.
Based on the story by Stephen King, The Mist centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world and, in some cases, each other.
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.
