Critic Reviews for Creepshow Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (1)

Even if the premiere of Creepshow is a little lackluster, fans should still be interested to see where this talented team takes this reboot. I know I still am.

This show knows that horror doesn't need monsters or viscera to be scary. The scares that stay with us are the tiny mysteries, the things that make a child pull her legs up under her blankets and scare across a room in uncertainty.

Sep 30, 2019 | Full Review…

The first episode features an adaptation of Stephen King's short story Grey Matter, as well as a tale of a haunted dollhouse... It is definitely the scarier of the two episodes released too far, though it's a fun kind of scary.

Oct 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In all, I found the first two stories to be a strong start to the series and included elements that will definitely appeal to fans of horror and the previous movies.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

From the first episode alone, Creepshow looks to be sheer catnip for '80s horror obsessives, hearkening back to a simpler time when horror didn't have to be filtered through the baroque trappings of arthouse cinema to be respected.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

It's best to enter into Creepshow fully understanding exactly what the show is trying to be: a live-action embodiment of an old-school horror comic, just like the film that inspired it.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Though it may be uneven, the investment into the creepy crawly anthology is a worthwhile cause for some wild stories.

Sep 26, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Its premiere gets the series off on the right foot with some refreshingly concise storytelling.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Creepshow's first pair of ghoulish tales so solidly nail what made the original so beloved that it's easy to get swept up in its own appreciation for the dark material.

Sep 26, 2019 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

Casual horror fans may not really get the appeal of Creepshow, but it's not made for them anyway. Horror aficionados, on the other hand, will find a lot to like.

Sep 25, 2019 | Full Review…

At just 20 minutes a pop, both of these stories just about manage to tick the right boxes... On the whole, this first episode falls a little short of schlock and awe, but it's definitely a step in the right direction.

Sep 30, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Both installments are surprisingly sedate, especially considering they were the ones chosen for the series premiere.

Audience Reviews for Creepshow: Season 1

    Greg Nicotero pays perfect homage to King and Romero's original movie. Out of 12 short stories, only 2 of them were truly awful (All Hallows Eve & Bad Wolf Down). I, for one, am looking forward to the second season.

    The stories were good,was creepy, acting was too. It was funny too! I recommend.

    This series is definitely a must see! Excellent stories (especially episodes 2 and 4). A perfect reboot to an 80s horror classic!

    I too wanted to like this! I mean The Raft is a favorite and The Crate??!!!! I could easily push past the campy production if the stories were fun and interesting. Sadly they seem pretty thin and lack punch or even fun.

    What are the best horror trilogies I've ever seen on TV. Really enjoying it wow. I hope shutter gives it another season. It's good and creepy fun

    Shockingly bad. The pilot is good with its first story a great adaptation of a Stephen King story followed by an interesting horror short laden with references to horror. And then it turns... poorly written, they butchered some great shorts by Jon R. Lansdale and David J. Schow by trying to cram them into half of the show, rather than giving them room to breathe. WORSE still, it's cheap. I know they don't have HBO money, but come on. Corners are cut in every imaginable way, from bad creature effects, bad animation, telling the ACTION of the stories by comic book panels and they can't even spellcheck the blurbs on the comics. Shocking how badly written some of these are. They keep getting cheaper! The next to last episode didn't even have a glimpse of the shoddy creeper, opting instead for animation sequences that look like they were done for Newgrounds in 2005. One more left. Hopefully they saved something of the quality of the pilot to try to contain this sh*t sandwich!

    We are only 4 Episodes but so far all stories have been incredible, I was concerned when a third movie came along that was dreadful but the Shudder series so far may just surpass the original two films IMO.
  • Oct 24, 2019
    It's really not as good as the reviews. Half of the episodes are pretty lame, not scary and very low budget.
  • Oct 18, 2019
    As a Creepshow fan I'm really liking this. Mainly follows suit keeping tone of the original while taking on some modern twists . Some great writing here. Gets better with each episode!
  • Oct 15, 2019
    This serie is very well done, and I enjoyed each of the episodes so far. I hope this serie will be renewed for a few more seasons. And "The Man in the Suitcase" was my favorite.
