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, IT 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.

The downtown area was refitted with a more modern look in November for another phase of production.

Nonsensical
27 August 2018 | by decspvSee all my reviews

After episode 7, still with few hopes left that something will rescue Castle Rock, I came to total boredom and final exhaustion. Four stars just for the set and some good acting, that's it. It has no meaning, no hooks, no intelligible development. I understand one must watch few episodes until things start to clarify but in this case, with each episode, more confusion is added, less clarity, and tons of nonsense keeps piling up. The expectation wears out, one gets tired of constant background suspense music and darkness. I even had to add close captioning because the actors kept mumbling things. No, I don't care if the great Stephen King is behind the idea. It is crappola. Bye bye Castle Rock.
