Salem’s Lot, Needful Things, Cujo, The Dark Half, Gerald’s Game, Creepshow, The Shawshank Redemption, Misery, Doctor Sleep, It, Sleepwalkers, The Dead Zone, The Shining, and so many more of Stephen King’s tales of terror have one thing in common… they either took place in or referenced the fictitious town of Castle Rock.
Now, with the dropping of the trailer you see below, comes the news that J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot are teaming with Hulu and Stephen King for the mother of all horror event series: “Castle Rock.” The last time the trio united was for the small screen adaptation of “11/22/63.”
This news is about to explode! Stand by!
A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, “Castle Rock” 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 an original suspense/thriller — a reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.
