Once again Stephen King and J.J. Abrams are teaming up with Hulu to bring us a new mini-series. And this time it’s about one of the most haunted and infamous locations any Stephen King fan or bibliophile is sure to recognize – Castle Rock. Sound familiar? It should. Castle Rock is the setting of numerous King stories over the years, including Cujo, Needful Things and The Body. But even when the town itself isn’t the center of King’s stories, it is mentioned in his novels and films including Sleepwalkers, Pet Sematary, It, Dreamcatcher, Creepshow, The Stand and many more.
What could be more exciting than a series based around a fictional town that has connections to or has bred some of horror literature’s most infamous monsters? In the teaser below it looks like King and Abrams are connecting the dots between the events of King’s novels and their relationship to this small Maine town.
