Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Director Tate Steinsiek's remake of Full Moon's classic H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Castle Freak is now available to watch on VOD (watch it HERE), and to help entice you to check it out we're proud to share an EXCLUSIVE clip from the film that shows a major event in the life of the heroine. The clip embedded above is a flashback to the accident that caused Rebecca Whateley (played by Clair Catherine) to lose her sight.

Based on the work of Lovecraft and the Castle Freak film master of horror Stuart Gordon made in 1995, this new take on the material has the following synopsis: 

After she’s permanently blinded in a tragic car accident, Rebecca’s receives some bizarre news: her long-lost-mother has recently passed away, leaving her their family’s ancestral castle. Traveling to the estate with a group of friends, Rebecca hopes it will be an opportunity for her to reconnect with a past she never knew—and a mother who seemingly left her behind. When mysterious happenings begin to occur and her friends begin to die, Rebecca must unravel her family’s mysterious history before she too falls prey to the Castle Freak.

Catherine is joined in the cast by Jake Horowitz, Emily Sweet, and Kika Magalhães.

Original Castle Freak co-star Barbara Crampton produced the remake with Dallas Sonnier, Amanda Presmyk, Justin Martell, Matt Manjourides, and Full Moon founder Charles Band. David Gilbery and Charles Dorfman served as executive producers.
