Critic reviews for Henry Deaver

In Episode 9, Castle Rock shook up everything, rewrote its timeline, and gave viewers a ton of information about The Kid (Bill Skarsgård).

I do have to say, it was nice to see and hear Bill Skarsgård play a regular character for once.

Creators Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason manage to visually and emotionally deliver a captivating sequence, finding horror again in Henry Deaver's closing frames.

In an act of artistic graciousness, this installment finally gifts Skarsgård... an opportunity to finally play a normal dude (which, all things considered, is still sort of weird).

I'm not sure if seeing an entire episode of Bill Skarsgård acting all norm-core is refreshing, or doubly creepy. Maybe both? Like, I was aroused and unsettled.

Henry Deaver is a completely serviceable episode, but we can't help but wonder if there wasn't another way to tell this story this late into the game.
