A slim tale of redemption and survival, with excitable acting that practically transforms the effort into 3-D, but the macabre essentials are provided with skill by the helmer.

A good Combs/Gordon effort.

Not as freaky as it sounds.

Rarely do you see a film that combines graphic sex and cannibal gore to such grisly effect, and that may be a good thing, but it's important to praise a movie for what it gets right.

Very, very disappointing Stuart Gordon effort

Audience Reviews for Castle Freak

I love Stuart Gordon and I love Jeffrey Combs, I had a long conversation with him at a very nerdy convention last year. Unfortunately, he hams it up somewhat in Castle Freak, I feel bad of saying so but it's true. It has its moments but overall this isn't Stuart Gordon at his best. Still, it's no Space Truckers either!

A family moves into an old Italian castle, where something freakish is kept as a secret down in the dungeon. There's gore indeed when the Freak gets loose from its chains. Fairly well-made Full Moon Picture; a classic. For a treat, try watching this movie with the color on your TV turned down, it's like a classic 1950's monster movie!
