It’s a TV show set in the semi-shared universe Stephen King created for his books.
And it’s awesome.
5 episodes in right now.
Great writing, acting, directing, and cinematography.
And if you thought Bill Skarsgård was creepy as Pennywise the clown in the newest iteration of IT, wait until you watch him barely speak in this show. Chills.
So far I am both impressed by the mystery at the heart of this season, and by the atmosphere of the episodes.
If you’re worried about the horror aspects of it, don’t so much.
So far it has been more eerie and foreboding than actually scary, save for one or two moments.
I highly recommend the show. It’s definitely worth your time.
It airs every Wednesday, on a certain streaming service that will remain nameless, because they aren’t paying me. You have the internet. I trust your research abilities.
Anyways, give Castle Rock a look.
You won’t regret it.
Until next time…
