News SFX Artist Tate Steinsiek to Direct Remake of Stuart Gordon’s ‘Castle Freak’ Published 1 year ago on April 16, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet American SFX and prosthetic makeup artist Tate Steinsiek has announced via his official Instagram page that he’s directing a remake of 1995 horror flick Castle Freak for Cinestate and Full Moon founder Charles Band. Steinsiek on tackling a remake of Stuart Gordon’s original: “So I can finally announce, I’m Directing the upcoming reboot of Castle Freak! It’s such an honor to be taking not only a Stuart Gordon classic, but also embracing the world of Lovecraft. Thank you @cinestatement Charles Band, and @fangoria for the opportunity, this is going to be fucking brutal. More news coming soon….” The original film co-starred genre icons Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton, loosely based on horror writer H.P. Lovecraft’s short story The Outsider. Synopsis: “In an ancient castle in Italy, the old Duchess Orsini has died and left behind a mysterious, living legacy. The sole heir is her American nephew, John Reilly, who arrives in Italy with his wife Susan and their blind teenage daughter Rebecca to settle the estate. When the Reillys move in, Rebecca hears strange scratching noises coming from the long dark corridors and senses another presence living in the castle. The castle’s cook Agnese tells John that the castle is haunted. As a string of unexplainable events occur within the castle walls, tensions grow. With some encouragement from Agnese, John begins to believe the ghost stories and to unearth the horrific truth… that there is a freak of human nature inhabiting the deepest dungeons of the castle. When the unknown creature frees himself and roams the dust filled corridors, the beautiful Rebecca becomes the object of his obsession, and everyone who stands in his way is apt to meet a gruesome end. Will John uncover his family’s darkest secret in time to save his own wife and daughter?” Dallas Sonnier, Amanda Presmyk, Charles Band, and Barbara Crampton will produce the project. The hunt is on for a screenwriter as we type this up. Dark Universe will continue to keep you updated on this new version of Castle Freak.
