    Absolute Masterpiece! Gripping, layered, and deep. Fantastically weaves the different characters of varied Stephen King novels, and movies, into a wondrous homage to him. Bravo!
  • Aug 27, 2022
    I liked the first three episodes. But the last episodes made little sense to me. I'll watch Season 2. But the cast is Great!
  • Dec 30, 2021
    Likely too soon to rate...only a few episodes in, but I am hooked!
  • Oct 25, 2021
    More than the plot, I think the characters have been built well and the performances of the actors are very good as well. Despite the dragging nature of the initial episodes, the show keeps you hooked to watch the next episode.

    Makings of a great show but failed to follow through. "The Queen"(ep. 7) was spectacular, just wish they had chosen to knock down all the dominoes they had set up. The "ambiguity" felt more like a cop-out Unfulfilling
  • Jan 24, 2021
    I'm mixed on this. It started out good and was interesting, but episode 9 (which confused me) kind of ruined it. And the ending was bad, that also ruined this season for me.

    "Castle Rock" Delivers the ‘Misery' Prequel You Never Knew You Wanted. Atmospheric "Castle Rock" is a Creepy and Immersive Stephen King Mashup
  • Jan 08, 2021
    For a series TV show, the cast is amazing and it's everything you love about Stephen king's Maine.
  • Nov 27, 2020
    A slow burn horror series, giving us the vibe of one creepy horror city with everyone living inside it. Two alternating storylines for each season, giving us a big picture of what's going on. Bill Skarsgård (ex Clown of ‘IT') perfectly portrayed his role as one creepy character for Season 1. However the plot remains questionable for Season 2 | follow us at @uncle.review
  • Oct 25, 2020
    unforgettable ending...more than a horror story its a puzzle with sorrow which gets created slowly and unfolds like a blast at the last episode.
