Castle Rock is very well-done and well-acted. Spacek, Levy, and Lynskey are terrific. There's even another Skarsgard and he's ok. It's psychological horror, like most King stories are, even though this isn't an original King, it's set in King's "universe". This kind of tricks the audience who think they're watching a King story, but it's interesting enough to hold your attention.
I watched this on hulu, and was hoping for a commercial free blu ray and was very excited to get it!!...The show is very good and kept me intrigued. The picture quality is awesome and so is the sound. The set itself is decent, it comes in a little slip box,
with a single size case and two discs inside...Definitely worth picking this one up!!
The acting from the cast is great, particularly an episode dominated by Sissy Spacek. It is mostly well written. It ties into many of Steohen King"s novels via iconic locations and Alan Pangborn and relations to other famous characters. There are a few things that didn't make sense. Is the episode about one character real or a lie, and if a lie, why? I did find the twist at the end disappointing. It is a short season, so watching the whole thing is worth it, even if only for understanding the context for Sissy Spacek's showcase episode. That was fantastic.
Listen up all you Stephen King fans get out there and pick this one up today for those of you who didn't get to see this series you won't be disappointed picking it up all the chills of a Stephen King story are here so do yourself a favor and pick it up today
This is a very quiet and thoughtful show filled with references to King's other works. From little touches like using the expression "to correct" someone and choosing Sissy Spacek to play the mom, any fan should enjoy the nods to previous titles. Bill Skarsgard gives an excellent performance as the mysterious fellow being held captive under Shawshank Prison. Terry O'Quinn is awesome, as always and performaces are solid all around. Looks great on bluray too...a fine addition to my King collection!
This show surprised me. It was engaging and delightfully strange without ever being truly scary. If you’re looking for a quirky show based on some of Stephen King’s world-building weirdness, give this a go. It has one of the most heart-wrenching and beautifully tragic episodes from the perspective of someone with Alzheimers disease, one that truly moved me. Looking forward to season 2!
I purchased this and it shipped quickly. it came in slightly damaged, but not a enough to warrant an exchange. I've seen the first few episodes and enjoyed them. Looking forward to watching the whole season. Great value as you get a digital copy as well.
