      Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh The overall narrative might not be groundbreaking but the confidence in the absurdity and the provocative nature of the direction makes for a weird and wild experience. Rated: 3/5 Sep 22, 2023 Full Review Brian Orndorf Blu-ray.com A slim tale of redemption and survival, with excitable acting that practically transforms the effort into 3-D, but the macabre essentials are provided with skill by the helmer. Rated: B- Sep 2, 2013 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Not as freaky as it sounds. Rated: B- Oct 17, 2005 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 12, 2005 Full Review Bryant Frazer Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus Rated: 3/5 Nov 17, 2003 Full Review Nicolas Lacroix Showbizz.net Rated: 2/5 Apr 4, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews

      Logan T Enjoyable enough for Stuart Gordon fans but that's about it Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review Audience Member Generic and gratuitous monster movie that whilst it isn't absolutely terrible, isn't really worth the time either. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Perfect example of what horror should be Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/21/22 Full Review R P Castle Freak has a kind of Gothic feel to it with it being set in an actual Italian castle in Italy. This is one of the first Full Moon movies I watched after discovering the Puppet Master series. Also, my first introductions to Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton. A darker movie than some of the other Full Moon movies, but pretty good. (https://foreverfinalgirl.com/castle-freak/) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/22 Full Review Audience Member "If he started drinking again, mom, he's going to need us more than ever!" In this family horror a father, who was responsible for the death of his son and the loss of his daughter's eyesight, moves his failing family to Europe to live in a castle he's inherited. Unfortunately, the castle comes with a resident who's long been chained in the dungeon. Another Lovecraft tale with Jeffrey Combs in the lead and Stuart Gordon directing. This one was super creepy, moreso than "From Beyond " or "Re-Animator" and I think the grainy film and different use of lightning really added to it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm lovin' the mean old lady - but what's she feeding? Whatever it is, Jeffrey Combs and his blind daughter have inherited it! Good use of tension with that slow build and use of close-up, not the full reveal, of the monster. Lovely cat bit, but that thumb bit is horrible. A step above the usual Full Moon fare, due to the story - violet, tragic, touching - and Gordon's accomplished, controlled direction.
