Crispin Glover Will Return to Horror in We Have Always Lived in the Castle

It feels like Crispin Glover has been gone from the horror genre for a long, long time. He’s probably best known to horror fans for playing the part of Jimmy Mortimer in Joseph Zito’s Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter. Now, after some time away from horror films, he’s back! His next film will be We Have Always Lived in the Castle, which you can read about below!

THR Writes:

The movie — an adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s 1962 story of the same name — “centers on an isolated family, The Blackwoods, who use rituals and talismans to ward off hostile townspeople. The clan has already lost four members to poisoning when a distant cousin (Stan) arrives to maliciously secure the Blackwood fortune, at which point family secrets are unearthed.”

Glover will play Uncle Julian Blackwood, a man who due to extreme gangrene is confined to a wheelchair and morbidly obsesses over his wife and brother’s mysterious deaths.

The film features a number of genre stars that include American Horror Story’s Alexandra Daddario and her co-star Taissa Farmiga (The Final Girls) as agoraphobic sisters in the movie, which will begin filming this month in Dublin.

We Have Always Lived in the Castle will be directed by Stacie Passon, who wrote 2013’s (Concussion). The film was also co-written by Stacie Passon and Mark Kruger, with Michael Douglas producing, along with Jared Goldman, Robert Mitas and Robert Halmi, Jr.
