Castle Rock Season 2 Easter Egg Filled Promo Takes You on a Road Trip From Castle Rock to Jerusalem’s Lot

Hulu has released an interesting promo spot for Castle Rock Season 2. It takes the viewers on a 14-minute long road trip from Castle Rock to Jerusalem’s Lot and the radio is on to keep you entertained as you travel.

You are supposed to keep a lookout to see if you can see or hear anything. I will say, there are a ton of references to some of Stephen King’s popular stories including Stand By Me, Misery, Salem’s Lot, Maximum Overdrive, It, Needful Things, The Mist, Under The Dome, Pet Semetary, Sleeping Beauties, The Shawshank Redemption, 11/22/63, The Stand, The Dead Zone, and more!

For those of you who are familiar with King’s work, these references aren’t hard to catch. You just have to listen. This is actually a pretty cool promo and while it may seem boring for some, it’s exciting for the Stephen King fans like myself.

Haunting and Unsettling Trailer for Stephen King's Castle Rock Season 2

I loved the first season of Hulu’s Castle Rock, which is a series that dives into the deep dark world of the Stephen King universe. The full trailer has been released for Season 2, and it’s got me super excited for the madness that is coming!

In Season 2, “a feud between warring clans comes to a boil when budding psychopath Annie Wilkes (Lizzy Caplan), Stephen King's nurse from hell, gets waylaid in Castle Rock." The fact that her character is involved in this next season is awesome and it looks like Caplan is going to be great in the role. She’s got the crazy and insane look in her eyes that the character needs.

Misery arrives October 23rd on Hulu. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think! Are you looking forward to the second season of Castle Rock?

10 Stephen King Films That Deserve Remakes

10 Stephen King Films That Deserve Remakes
With the concluding chapter of Stephen King’s “It” remake floating into theaters this week – and with new versions of “Firestarter,” “Salem’s Lot,” and “The Stand” on the horizon – here are 10 terrifying King films that might benefit from a fresh adaptation.

The Dead Zone (1983)

It’s impossible to imagine another actor playing Johnny Smith, the clairvoyant coma survivor at the center of King’s creepy tale, with as much haunted intensity as Christopher Walken brought to David Cronenberg’s superb adaptation. That’s why a modern remake of “The Dead Zone” would be wise to expand the role of Greg Stillson, the unhinged political candidate portrayed by Martin Sheen the first time around. Luckily, King’s bestseller includes several frightening scenes with the deranged character that weren’t included in the original film. In today’s politically divisive climate, a Stillson-centered take on the material would help give a

Review: Stephen King's "Needful Things" (1993) Starring Max Von Sydow; Kino Lorber Blu-ray Special Edition

  • CinemaRetro
By Sara Reineke

The Kino Lorber Blu-ray release of Stephen King’s 1993 Needful Things comes in the midst of Hollywood’s current remake fever. With such projects as Carrie (2013), It (2017), Pet Sematary (2019) and the upcoming It: Chapter Two (2019), this author’s works continue to draw movie audiences and infuse the horror genre as they had during the 1980s and 90s. Revisiting this original production of King’s 1991 novel - whereupon the devil comes to visit the small Maine town of Castle Rock - one is reminded why both his novels and films alike are regarded as iconic horror set pieces.

Following along on the heels of previous successes such as Carrie (1973), The Shining (1980), Pet Sematary (1989), and Misery (1990) - and released only a year before the iconic Shawshank Redemption (1994) - Needful Things shares many similarities to King’s other works. Meditating on the theme of human evil, this film puts the
