Beware. You might need to start sleeping with the lights on. Hulu's upcoming psychological horror series Castle Rock brings the stories and themes of Stephen King to a sleepy town in Maine. The cast and creative team behind the show took to New York Comic Con earlier this month to talk about what makes this show special.

This summer Stephen King's IT floated to number one at the box office, and now his stories are headed to the small screen in a new show premiering in 2018. Castle Rock will bring all of the scares you expect from King and is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot. It seems like Castle Rock will give you the creeps -- especially since Shawshank Prison is involved.

With very few details known about just what life in Castle Rock is actually like, we spoke to stars Bill Skarsgard, Melanie Lynskey, and André Holland alongside executive producers to find out more about just what makes this horror show stand out from the rest.
