Barbara Crampton & Jeffrey Combs star as an estranged couple in Stuart Gordon's CASTLE FREAK. Loosely based on H. P. Lovecraft's short story "The Outsider," Castle Freak expands the narrative with a family drama that is as horrific as the kills.

"A troubled couple and their blind daughter come to Italy to visit a 12th Century castle they've inherited. Soon they are plagued by unexplained noises, mysteriously broken objects, and the daughter's claims of an unknown nocturnal visitor to her bedroom. When the housekeeper and a local prostitute and are discovered savagely murdered in the castle's dungeon, John must unlock the castle's secret to save himself from jail and his family from the castle's secret inhabitant."

This special presentation is immediately followed by an exclusive interview with Barbara Crampton and Jeffrey Combs! Gwen & Brian chat with them about their roles in various Lovecraft film adaptations and their work with the great Stuart Gordon.

All streams are available until Monday 10/5 at 6 pm.
