News & Interviews for Castlevania: Season 1
It never quite reaches the demented highs of its pillar-of-hellfire pilot, but by season's end, there's a clear mission statement for arriving at a slightly more optimistic future.
All these missing elements, combined with its vague and generic low fantasy setting makes one wonder if it was even necessary to use the Castlevania license when it could pass off as something entirely different.
Castlevania's first season feels like it's pitched between two dissonant tones: goofy bloody gothic nonsense, and boring self-serious story of good vs. evil.
When it was announced that Netflix was cracking the bullwhip on a Castlevania animated series written by gawd scribe Warren Ellis, you know the nerd streets was talking.
The show had a lot more humor than I thought, dark humor...Castlevania was great, for what it is.
Audience Reviews for Castlevania: Season 1
From Netflix comes Castlevania, an animated horror series based on a popular video game. Written by Warren Ellis, Season 1 follows a rogue warrior named Trevor Belmont who reluctantly comes to the aid of the town of Gresit, which is besieged by Dracula's demon army following the murder of his human wife. While it's billed as a "season" it's really a movie that's been broken into 4 episodes that don't work separately. But even together they don't tell a complete story, and what there is doesn't make much sense; Dracula as a scientist? (WTF) And, the language is very crude and vulgar...for no apparent reason. Borderline incoherent, Season 1 of Castlevania is a mess that doesn't seem to know what it's doing.
