‘A bold reimagining of a horror classic’

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; City of the Living Dead; Zombie Flesh Eaters) composed the soundtrack score as he did for the recent Fangoria/Full Moon Features production Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich.


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!

  1. We have been covering the Castle Freak remake ever since it was announced in 2019 but decided to repost that info with the release of the new poster and trailer. The genuine castle location does look great and the cast seem promising. That said, I’m not sure by the claim that the original was a “classic”. More like better than average.

  2. Thanks for adding this! I heard about this on a different site and they said it was released about 6-8 months ago but it was not! Just scammed people to pay for the old one. So nice to see the real movie having a release date! That said it does look good! The scary, horror filled Balkans theme is always nice to see on films. Even more so living in that area of the world for over 5 years and traveling to many of the countries in these movies it is nothing like the movies! More like Iowa USA than shown on films! He hee. Which makes me enjoy these type of movies more for knowing what I thought it would be living in the areas of Vlad Teppes, E. Bathory etc. Also is a castle really disabled friendly? Not my first choice if I suddenly went blind! He hee
