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.

Disappointing Finale
14 September 2018 | by tommccarthy001See all my reviews

Had to wait a few days to write this. I loved the series leading up to the finale. The penultimate episode was the best of the lot. Great expectations for the end but I was let down. I understand the need to allow the audience to write their own conclusions but could you have at least offered better clues to enable them to do so? The ambiguity was totally unnecessary. Reward your fan base with some type of resolution. I'll give season 2 a go for now but I'm sure some people won't even bother.
