‘Castle Rock’ went full Stephen King with one great ‘The Shining’ reference

Stephen King has written an absolute eff-ton of books, novellas, and short stories in his time, but his most famous is likely The Shining. It’s a dark, sad tale of alcoholism, telepathy, and the danger of topiary sculptures best immortalized in the Stanley Kubrick film that cast Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance, the anger-challenged author...CONTINUE READING

So ‘Castle Rock’ is apparently a sci-fi drama about a universe that loves to scream, or something

Spoilers up to Castle Rock Season 1, episode 6 below. Castle Rock is, as many have noted, a very slow burn of a show. It lobs mysteries wholesale at the audiences and jealousy hoards their answers, doling out only the smallest, barely noticeable clues as the episodes unfold.  When Castle Rock does have big reveals,...CONTINUE READING

That’s what it’s like trying to talk about Castle Rock right now. I’m four episodes in on the Stephen King collaboration with J.J. Abrams...CONTINUE READING

Hulu’s Stephen King series ‘Castle Rock’ gets a spooky new trailer and premiere date

It definitely bodes well for a spooky, new web series when the unmistakable voice of Lost’s Terry O’Quinn (John Locke, people!) is there to calmly tell you what’s coming. Castle Rock is hard to pin down, and this trailer doesn’t clear up any questions. It’s a Bad Robot production — that’s J.J. Abrams’ company —...CONTINUE READING
