I'm a huge fan of the original Castle Freak so I was very hesitant, but also curious as to what this new reimagining would bring to the table. I'm admittedly not very familiar with the Lovecraft story that it's based on, so maybe I'm missing something, but this movie was just all over the place. The acting was terrible, the story was full of cliches, the camera work was clunky, and there's absolutely no build up or suspense whatsoever. Nothing even remotely significant happens until the last twenty minutes or so, and by then you couldn't really care less about these hollow characters and what's happening to them. Better stick with the original on this one.
An Albanian castle with bloodthirsty creatures is inherited by a young woman.
