Andre Holland to star in Stephen King series Castle Rock

13 May 2017 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hulu’s upcoming Stephen King-inspired series Castle Rock has scored its first cast member, with Andre Holland (Moonlight, The Knick) signing on to play Henry, a death row attorney who has a unique history with the town of Castle Rock.

Produced by J.J. AbramsBad Robot, Castle Rock is set to deliver a shared Stephen King universe of sorts, and will “weave together characters and themes from those novels that use the Castle Rock location. Each season will follow a different set of characters and storylines while interjecting themes and specific characters from previous seasons.”

Castle Rock is the fictional Maine town that appears in many of King’s works, including The Dead Zone, Cujo, The Body, The Dark Half and Needful Things. The series will mark the second King collaboration between Hulu and Bad Robot after the 2016 miniseries 11.22.63. »

Lead Role Cast for Stephen King & J.J. Abrams’ Castle Rock Series

11 May 2017 10:24 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in February, Hulu gave Stephen King fans quite a surprise when they released a teaser video for Castle Rock, a new series set in the world of Stephen King's fictional universe that has spanned many novels and short stories. While much of the series' specific details remain shrouded in mystery, the first casting news for the upcoming show has now been announced.

Variety reports that André Holland (recently seen as Matt Miller in American Horror Story: Roanoke and Kevin in the Oscar-winner Moonlight) has been cast in the lead role for Castle Rock. Holland will play "Henry, a death row attorney with a unique and complicated history in the town," the town presumably being Castle Rock, Maine.

Production on the 10-episode first season of Castle Rock is expected to start this year, and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed. In the meantime, »

Blu-ray Review: Firestarter Collector’s Edition

6 April 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With the glut of Stephen King novels adapted into movies during the early-to-mid 1980s, it became all too easy for certain films to fall through the cracks. It was even easier, in fact, when so many of those movies were high-profile productions made by A-list directors like Stanley Kubrick, David Cronenberg, and John Carpenter. One can understand how a movie like Mark L. Lester’s Firestarter, an adaptation of King’s 1980 novel of the same name, wound up getting overlooked. I’m guilty of it myself, having seen the movie and promptly filed it with the other middle-of-the-pack Stephen King movies. Luckily, Scream Factory has a new Blu-ray that has me reconsidering my opinion and hopefully will allow other horror fans to rediscover a really cool film.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

18 March 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Full disclosure: The Amityville Horror films do not make up my favorite franchise. And it has nothing to do with the central “haunted house” premise, but rather the execution of the series thus far, from the serviceable ground zero template, The Amityville Horror (1979) through the (as yet unseen) upcoming Amityville: The Awakening, with some stops in between at DTVville (not to mention the Ryan Reynolds remake; but I said not to mention, so not mention I shall). The name is so shopworn now that “Amityville” has become synonymous with “poopy”.

But, but, But…let’s rewind to a time when a follow up to the kind-of goofy James Brolin (and his glorious perm) starrer was actually anticipated. That film was a smash success at the box office, and the powers that be wanted to revisit the village of Amityville to see what other demons they could find in the basement. »

Castle Rock: what is Stephen King's new TV show?

Dan Cooper Feb 20, 2017

A teaser for Stephen King and Jj Abrams' latest TV project snuck online over the weekend. What can we expect from Castle Rock?

There are some towns whose streets and byways you know almost as well as the back of your hand; you can picture them perfectly, whether it be in the calm stillness of a summer dawn or the frenzied onset of a coming storm. You’ve visited many times, perhaps over the span of several generations and watched with fascination as the passing of time left its mark. Avenues and roads stretch off in maddeningly unknowable directions, the alluring thrill of dark revelation lingering in each shadowed street.
