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.
The show had a lot more humor than I thought, dark humor...Castlevania was great, for what it is.
Netflix's Castlevania performed magic by hitting my childhood nostalgia while offering my adult self something substantial and exciting.
Video game adaptations can be iffy, but Castlevania is a more nuanced take. It feels like it's just waking up.
The addled attention spans of video gamers drawn to Netflix's new Castlevania animated series will not be unduly strained. The first season is -- like Dracula's fangs -- short, potent, and dripping with reasons to want more.
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.
