Valentine’s Day, a contrived holiday for couples who spend quality time together like it’s an anniversary, is superficial and arrogant annual tradition. The problem is how unlike other super commercialized holidays like Christmas, Easter and Halloween, it’s shamefully exclusionary. The holiday is meaningless to singles, no matter the mood. They either become more depressed than […]
After the 1976 Brian DePalma film, after Carrie 2 and the 2002 TV reboot, the Castle gang come to the latest and final film in our Carrie retrospective: Carrie (2013) starring Chloe Grace Moretz. The difference here (besides a very believable performance by Portia Doubleday as the conniving Chris) is that this Carrie comes across […]

The Castle of Horror Podcast is back! We’re kicking off the 2018 season with the Carrie Retrospective, focusing on everyone’s favorite example of what Jean Grey would be like in a world without the X-Men. We’re starting with the 1999 film The Rage: Carrie 2, which has some interesting things to say about telekinesis, consent, […]
This Sunday, Hulu is giving Super Bowl fans five million reasons to get excited for Castle Rock, the streaming service’s new thriller-drama series from J.J. Abrams that combines a number of author Stephen King‘s works into a “shared universe” narrative. During the second quarter – possibly closer to halftime – of the NFL’s national championship […]

The episode, which will air April 18th, will feature 11 different songs. The production of the Stephen King horror classic, will be directed by Kevin Keller […]
After six seasons of living a Michael Corleone-style life of letting herself be pulled back in after she’s worked so hard to get herself out, it doesn’t look like Homeland‘s upcoming seventh season is going to bode much better for Claire Danes‘ Carrie Mathison. In the new teaser released by Showtime, Carrie has left her […]
It is October, the official month of Halloween and Horror. Which means that it’s a perfect time to take a look at the latest Box of Dread subscription box and they’ve really upped their game this month. Starting off with the fact that the Box of Dread now has a cool new box. I really […]
I don’t know about you, but a adorable jack Torrance from The Shining on my desk at work was not something I thought I needed until i opened up the Funko blog this morning and saw one. Now, If I don’t have one my desk will feel incomplete. For horror fans, a new wave of Funko […]
Not so much casting news out there today, so here’s a roundup of the newest videos released from all those movies coming out that you may or may not be eagerly anticipating.

It'd be a truly remarkable feat for the Carrie do-over to replace Brian De Palma's film as the definitive screen version of this story but I think Kimberly Peirce might be making something strong in its own right.
Here are the things I managed to take pictures of out and about around Comic-Con last night, before the jet lag ate my soul.
A rather buff, if somewhat scarred, Aaron Eckhart and a cracked, blood-spattered Chloe Grace Moretz.
This first cover shows a Spider-Man vs. Electro face-off, presumably revealing the final colour treatment for Jamie Foxx's glowing head.
It could be worse. Like that time I told my friends not to look at the box of the Planet of the Apes DVD when they were about to watch it for the first time. "Don't look," I said because "they just went ahead and put the stat..."
I know that Carrie is a well known story from a best-selling novel, previously adapted into a widely seen film, but this trailer certainly cuts a long way into the story.
Shame. I was looking forward to seeing this in March.
Could also have been a teaser for Firestarter, give or take the blood.
You will know her name... and a few other things too.
For the sake of official updates, here are the recently released plot blurbs for three upcoming horror pictures – the done-over Evil Dead; the done-over Carrie; and the latest Child’s Play sequel, Curse of Chucky. All of which reminds me how happy I am that folks like, say, Jen and Sylvia Soska are making original […]
