Castle Rock: Season 2 Reviews

December 3, 2019
A lot of horror anthologies hinge on concept instead of character or performance, but I'm happy to see "Castle Rock" bucking that trend.

One episode in, this season of Castle Rock is pulpy in a way season one didn't attempt. It's quick and sharp and tense and breathless.

Castle Rock remains an atmospheric, grippingly acted series that captures the feeling of King's fiction while exploring corners of his world that even he might not have imagined existing.

[Lizzie] Caplan, is unsettlingly good as Annie, giving a performance that can be emotionally poignant in one scene and petrifying in another, turning on a dime in an instant.

What's here is still effective, affecting, and original - despite appearances.

There's little apparent benefit to how the show's second season foregrounds its interpersonal relationships.

I can't tell if the new season is over-reaching, under-reaching or if the Annie Wilkes of it all is just overshadowing the story to an unanticipated degree.

[Caplan's] performance is masterfully physical, from her carefully impassive smile to the way she holds her arms stiffly at her sides as she walks; the actress embodies a woman who is struggling to control a constant surge of inner turmoil.
