Stephen King’s early short story, the Lovecraftian Jerusalem’s Lot (not to be confused with Salem’s Lot), inspired this turgid 10-part supernatural period piece. Set in the 1850s, Chapelwaite stars a mournfully whispery Adrien Brody as a haunted and recently widowed sea captain who brings his sad children to Maine to inhabit the title manor he inherited after a family tragedy. He worries he’s going mad, a feeling that only grows after the locals revile him, blaming his family for an insidious “illness” that looks a lot like vampirism. Be patient—really patient-and you’ll be rewarded by some creepy and graphic imagery, because the evil biding its time in nearby Jerusalem’s Lot is not easy to kill. (See the full review.)
