Jonathan Fuller as the Castle Freak in 1995

Castle Freak is a 2020 American horror feature film directed by SFX makeup artist Tate Steinsiek (making his feature debut) from a screenplay written by Kathy Charles. The Fangoria and Full Moon Features production is a remake/reboot of Dennis Paoli and Stuart Gordon’s 1995 film of the same name which was loosely based on the short story ‘The Outsider’ by H. P. Lovecraft.

“You could define my life by three major infatuations: Fangoria, H.P. Lovecraft, and Stuart Gordon. To be combining those three great loves of mine into the singular hallucination that will be our new Castle Freak is a bloody dream come true. It’s an absolute honour,” Steinsiek enthused.

The movie stars Clair Catherine, Jake Horowitz, Chris Galust, Kika Magalhães (The Eyes of My Mother) Emily Sweet, Elisha Pratt, and Omar Brunson.

Fabio Frizzi (The Beyond; Zombie Flesh Eaters) is composing the soundtrack score as he did for the recent Fangoria/Full Moon Features production Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich.

Plot: 

Recently-blinded Rebecca, her boyfriend John, and their friends travel to Albania to manage Rebecca’s sudden inheritance of a castle from her long-lost-mother.

Once there, they learn that Rebecca’s family harboured dark secrets with potentially cosmic implications. As mysterious happenings and horrific murders begin to occur, Rebecca must unravel her family’s own mysterious history before she too falls prey to… the Castle Freak.

Production is set to commence this July in Albania.

Here’s the trailer for the 1995 Castle Freak which stars Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton (a co-producer on the reboot):
