Storyline

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. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King's literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller - a first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.

Trivia

Aiming commendation at episode 1.7, (Castle Rock: The Queen (2018))'s instrumental score, reviewer Jacob Knight wrote, "The music in Castle Rock - courtesy of composer Chris Westlake - has been nothing short of exemplary throughout the entire series, but in "The Queen" it practically becomes a character unto itself."

I Couldn't Even Blink
26 July 2018 | by tdwillis-26273See all my reviews

They often say it takes a team to make anything succesfull and it is evident here. The actors are top notch, best of the best. The directing is A+. The camera work and cinematography are excellent. The story line and plot are at once a slow burn, yet sufficiently creepy and intellegent to keep you glued. One reviewer suggested they feel asleep it was so boring. He must have had a hard day at work, or narcolepsy because I dont think I even blinked.
