Critic Reviews for Freakish Season 1

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

It's campy, full of exaggerated teen soap acting, and weirdly delightful to watch.

Teen zombie horror is predictably fun, stars YouTubers.

Oct 11, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Mild disinterest is probably not what the show was going for.

Top Critic

Here in the age of zombie TV, lots about Freakish seems familiar, but with the episodes shorter than a half-hour each, the series goes down easily.

Audience Reviews for Freakish: Season 1

    The premise of the show is a tried and true device that shows how a mixed group of varying personalities can form bonds and work together under the perilous circumstances that have brought them all together in a claustraohobic environment. The special effects budget may have been lacking, however the practical effects and convincing acting makes up for it. The exposition isn't premature, and each episode artfully builds suspense while hashing out character arcs. I wouldn't say that this is the best show I've ever watched, but it was certainly good enough to grab my attention continually. The 20 minute run time of each episode is both convenient for individuals with a busy schedule, while also being well thought out and executed, leaving the viewer feeling as if their time was well spent. I would highly recommend checking it out if this review has peaked your interest.

    A great & addicting show!! I only found out about it well after the release of season 2, I can only hope that Hulu reconsiders it’s fate and brings it back for another season!!!

    Typical teenage zombie show. Full of plot holes in every episode, over the top corny moments but somehow still fun to watch.

    Absolutely loved the first season. I watched the first episode and suddenly I was absolutely hooked. very interesting storyline, and you just come to love every single character.

    Decent little low budget tv show. Very reminiscent of Misfits except not quite as good. But Misfits set the bar high.

    It was so bad and so frustrating to watch. Don't get me started on how they presented the zombies. It was freakin stupid. The only good thing about it was Liza, but she got annoying at times too.

    The acting was subpar at best, but the timing of the characters are completely off. Dialogue is painfully robotic and cliche, all of the characters fit into some sort of bland high school stereotype, but remain unlikable, one-dimensional, and annoying. But seriously it feels like the script and plot is written by a 15 year old who's never talked to another 15 year old before. It's just plain bad. The only reason anyone even gives this show positive reviews is because they happen to like the social media stars that act in it. Don't bother watching this unlike you enjoy watching bad movies/tv shows for the irony factor or if you're literately so bored out of your mind that you have nothing else to do.
