Epix has unleashed the full trailer for the upcoming horror series Chapelwaite, which is based on Stephen King’s classic story “Jerusalem’s Lot.” The new show looks incredible and comes with a brilliant cast! Adrien Brody stars in the series, which serves as a prequel to Salem’s Lot, and this new full trailer shows us just how horrifying it will be. As a fan of this story, I can’t wait to watch this show.
The story is set in the 1850s, and it follows Captain Charles Boone (Brody) “who relocates his family of three children to his ancestral home in the small, seemingly sleepy town of Preacher’s Corners, Maine after his wife dies at sea. However, Charles will soon have to confront the secrets of his family’s sordid history, and fight to end the darkness that has plagued the Boones for generations.”
Emily Hampshire said about the series, “It’s based on the short story by Stephen King that was the prequel to Salem’s Lot. I’m just so excited about it because I love wearing corsets. It is set in 1850, and to go from Stevie’s [on Schitt’s Creek‘s] plaids to this out of her time, educated woman in 1850 wearing corsets, is the most exciting thing ever. I love it.”
Epix president Michael Wright also previously said, “This series is an intense, absolutely terrifying reimagining of classic gothic horror.”
The horror series is set to air on Epix on August 22nd, 2021.
