It was not their imagination, but there are some actual deadly ghosts watching them from all over and they have been caught within an extremely frightening space full of ghosts and it’s seemingly impossible to escape!

Why is The Castle So Amazing?
Normally horror films are made with the intention of giving viewers an experience of extreme fear and it’s enjoyable too, because the viewer is actually safe on his seat, and all the fearsome incidences are happening far from him on the screen which he enjoys, though he is scared a lot.
The Castle is different and above the normal horror films because it’s a successful combination of some different genres than horror, such as WWII, history and war. Thus lovers of these genres are also going to enjoy this film. Thus history buffs, war lovers, WWII enthusiasts and horror fans will love this film alike.

One excellent example of their creativity is that the castle in the film looks like a real German castle and will give you the feeling of entering one with its perfectly European architecture. However, in reality, it’s a huge mansion built by a former newspaper owner in Illinois! Thus, the production team has taken real pain in finding the appropriate place that provides a perfect backdrop for the horror as well as historical themes of the film. In the film, it has been shown to be built upon mass graves of Germanic barbarians killed by the Roman Empire centuries ago in Germany.
Even the war shown at the starting of the film has been reenacted so well with numerous war vehicles, jeeps and tanks. In addition to this, a professional pyrotechnician will give blood pack squibs, explosions and other FX, to make the war scene real.
