I've got you beat on the "castles with strange names that coincidentally resemble sci-fi properties" front: there's a castle in Ireland called Castle Matrix. The name appears to be a clumsy Anglicization of the original Irish name.

I've been curious about GOG's selection of spooky point and click games for a while. Years ago I picked up the famous Barrow Hill and came to similar conclusions as you in regards to its quality, but something about the atmosphere of the game still struck a chord with me. In a way, I think games like that were made too early; they'd work much better as full 3D games, sort of like Gone Home but with more puzzles.
