Today's movie was made for half a million bucks with two stipulations: It was filmed in Charles Band's Italian mansion and it had a freak in it. Castle Freak turned out pretty well, all things considered.

This one reunites Stuart Gordon, Jeffrey Combs, and Barbara Crampton, takes them to Italy, gives us a freak, and delivers some solid splatter. Will that be enough to earn Castle Freak the coveted 5 Barf Bag rating? Let's get to the gore and find out!

  2. @7:56 Free of the shackles of YouTube's tyranny? Well could just stop posting videos here. Hell is of the mind as Milton said.

  3. Have you seen Steven King's Nightflyer? Simply horrifying. If you haven't seen it you might want someone to watch it with you.I don't like the language.ALL other vamps per down their legs when he walks by.

  4. Have you seen those guys in the malls with the strollers, with that look on their face like they envy the dead? 'Somebody shoot me! This isn't the mall! I'm in Hell!😂

  5. I almost collided with Mr Coombs in a hotel bar back in 2004. We were both carrying an arm full of longnecks. Luckily not a drop spilled. Good times.

  6. Looks like a nice bloody film. And yes Mr. Mike, you are a GIFT as you gave us that #$% damn LDG DOUBLE BASTARDS – I will never forgive you… 💀☠💀☠

  7. My memory of going to the Family video rental (wayyy before Redbox) and seeing this somewhere between Ice Scream Man and JackO. I bypassed it only to catch it on HBO later. Jeffrey Combs is a gem in anything he does and should get more recognition. Awesome review Mike The Devo reference had me lmao.

  8. Hey Horror Geek, PLEASE do Stuart Gordon's 'Pit and the Pendulum'. I'm on my knees… "hell yeah".

    No, not that way you perve!!

  9. Did you not only put a Terminator X shout out in this but also a Nikita koloff / sting chain match Great American bash reference? Are you writing these specifically for my enjoyment? Because they are greatly appreciated, sir. Keep the awesomeness coming!

  10. It's funny. You said youtube hates boobs. But, a week ago, youtube had no problem letting me watch a video of a certain group of people, beheading a sheep. The camera was in close, it was real, and it freaked me the f@@k out. Didn't expect to see that. Anyway, great video! I loved the Arthur reference.

  11. This was entertaining. I'd watch it. Plus we scored the trifecta of "Hell Yeah, Bastards x2, and what is fast becoming a favorite Football practice". Well done sir! You certainly excel at your craft.

  12. I’ve gotta ask – what’s “FOOTBALL PRACTICE!!” a reference to? I’ve watched a bunch of videos on this channel, but I must’ve missed where that comes from.

  13. "We have always lived in the castle freak" is such an exquisitely stupid, and therefore exquisitely funny, gag, that I paused the video just to congratulate you for it.

  14. A somber Gothic tragedy with two of my favorite horror stars. Not the greatest film ever made, but definitely the greatest Full Moon film ever made…

  15. good one again. love this movie. i wonder if this cell where the freak first shown is the only cell with a mirror inside..hmmm .. thx mike

  16. Castle freak is so underrated. Jeff combs awesome actor . I didn't care for the 2020 version. awesome video Mike as always 👍

  17. Half million budget you know they didn’t pay for no fancy trained cat- that means they literally yanked that thing backwards through that door as it held on for dear life!

  18. Two words : Lech Walesa !! Name one other YouTube channel that gives you that reference. Almost did a spit take with my J&B. Outstanding work as always Mike. Your videos keep getting better.

  19. This movie is great. The name is so dumb I was surprised by the nuance and quality of the plot and acting. I've made several people watch this, and it hasn't failed to amaze.

  20. I've watched a couple dozen of your videos in the past week. i'm a fan already. 80's horror, tons of old school hip-hop references and a wicked sense of humor…all that is right up my alley………hell yeah.

  21. Ahh, the 90s. When you could get a solid night of full moon movies and the red shoe diaries if your parents fell asleep early enough!

  22. Not a fan of this one. Watched it once, never wanted to see it again. One of Stuart Gordon's lesser efforts and I thought Jefferey Combs was mis-cast in this one. However, entertaining review, as always. But, I have to say…you really reached for that Shirley Jackson joke. Groan.

  23. 10:34 CST. The longest I’ve gone before getting to watch a new episode. Goddamn dinner got me!

    Great video as ALWAYS, Mike. As a Patreon member, I encourage everyone that can spare a few shekels to join up, get a producer’s credit, and support the creators you enjoy. This shit isn’t easy, even if Ol’ Beardy here makes it look that way.
