Stephen King’s ‘Castle Rock’ Trailer: There’s ‘Something Wrong’ With Bill Skarsgård (Video)
Welcome to Castle Rock, the creepy setting of Stephen King’s latest TV adaptation.

On Tuesday, Hulu dropped the official trailer for “Castle Rock,” its upcoming psychological-horror series from King and J.J. Abrams and starring Bill Skarsgård in a role that might make you forget all about how much he freaked you out as Pennywise in “It.”

In the 2-minute, 25-second video, we’re introduced to the titular town that has been the setting of so many haunting tales in the King universe and immediately meet Skarsgård’s latest spooky persona: an inmate at Shawshank who just shows up out of the blue. As soon as this guy shows up, a series of chilling events begin to occur, as it’s pointed out to us “there’s something wrong with that kid.”
