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.

King is king
17 September 2018 | by lenny-22959See all my reviews

Yes yes yes. I loved it I mean had me on edge the whole time. Srory is original and creative I'm still left wondering, who is in the right.

Intertwining storylines that get blurred or in some cases cleared up gripping plot.

I really liked it. Seeing the reviews ppl either loved it or hated it.

The last episode got some stick as it it didn't answer the questions u have but for me perfect.

Roll on season 2
