Newcomer Clair Catherine, Jake Horowitz (The Vast of Night), Chris Galust (Give Me Liberty), and Kika Magalhães (The Eyes of My Mother) are set to star in Fangoria’s reimagining of Dennis Paoli and Stuart Gordon’s 1995 horror classic Castle Freak, Crypt Teaze learned today.
Emily Sweet (Syn), Elisha Pratt ("True Detective"), and Omar Brunson also star in what will be the second feature team-up between Fangoria and the legendary Full Moon Features, after the success of last year’s Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich.
The story follows recently-blinded Rebecca, her boyfriend John, and their friends as they travel to Albania to manage Rebecca’s sudden inheritance of a castle from her long-lost-mother. Once there, they learn that Rebecca’s family harbored dark secrets with potentially cosmic implications. As mysterious happenings and horrific murders begin to occur, Rebecca must unravel her family’s own mysterious history before she too falls prey to… the Castle Freak.
Award-winning SFX Makeup Artist Tate Steinsiek (Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, Satanic Panic) will make his feature debut directing the script written by Kathy Charles. Italian maestro Fabio Frizzi returns to the Fangoria family to compose an original score for the movie.
Producers include Barbara Crampton, Charles Band (producer of the original Castle Freak), and Justin Martell and Matt Manjourides (The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs). David Gilbery and Charles Dorfman are executive producing for Media Finance Capital, who have fully financed the picture. Dallas Sonnier and Amanda Presmyk are producing for Fangoria.
Production begins next month in Albania.
