Stephen King’s Horror Universe Becomes One In First Trailer For CASTLE ROCK

Castle Rock

 STEPHEN KING’S HORROR STORIES WILL COME TO LIFE IN NEW SERIES CASTLE ROCK FROM PRODUCER J.J ABRAMS.

A GREAT TIME TO BE KING

It now seems that King’s work is finally getting the justice it deserves. Andres Mushietti’s recent IT remake has become the highest grossing horror movie of all time. Although IT didn’t push all of the buttons I hoped it would, I still left the theatre enjoying it.

Then out of nowhere came Netflix original Gerald’s Game which honestly blew me away. Another King adaptation, this time brought to us by Hush helmer, Mike Flanagan. Gerald’s Game, to me, was a horror movie for grown-ups. A simple story, set in a single room, a movie that solely focused on the acting abilities of our two amazing leads. You can read my review for Gerald’s Game here.

NOW WE’RE GOING TO BE GETTING A LOT MORE STEPHEN KING…IN FACT, ALL OF IT!

Produced by J.J Abrams (through his Bad Robot production company ), Castle Rock will have all of Stephen King’s beloved characters and stories in one series.
