Critics Consensus

While it pales in compassion to the classics it references, "Flesh & Blood" is an entertaining B-movie with two compelling performances at its core.

Critic Reviews for Flesh & Blood

As Flesh & Blood becomes more predictable, the filmmaking doesn't tighten like it needs to in order to go from mystery to thriller.

Into the Dark's second installment is scary, sure - and, generally speaking, impressive as a horror story that's supposed to be centered around Thanksgiving, of all things - but more importantly, it's fun.

This episode is easily the best of the two(so far)! A twisted piece of dramatic horror with two excellent lead performances. Loved the moments of homage to The Shining.

There's plenty of potential in "Flesh & Blood," especially since the installment references a bunch of classic horror, but it still feels like a pulpy pale comparison of those films rather than something that evolves the form.

Silvers does a good job finding the right balance between an average teenager and unprocessed trauma survivor.

There are some nice claustrophobic moments before the conventional plot kicks in, and it won't take you long to figure out where the danger is coming from or how it will bloodily end.

The central mystery of the episode is good enough to be entertaining, and Silvers and Dermot Mulroney give solid performances. That being said, the episode leans too much into B-horror schlock.

What the Thanksgiving themed episode of Into the Dark lacks in turkey, it makes up for with tension and terror.

Yet, adequately entertaining, with a couple of great lead performances...and a deliciously intense end, "Flesh & Blood" is a pretty-if-stupid B-movie whose schlockiness has plenty to unpack for those looking for an easy thrill.

If any other episodes match or surpass 'Flesh & Blood,' then we're in store for a treat.

Dec 20, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

We're still in need of a fully-dressed Thanksgiving horror classic given the dried-out and underseasoned presentation of Flesh & Blood.

Dec 20, 2018 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Flesh and Blood was perhaps a little more organized and better executed than its predecessor, so the hope then is that each successive installment in the series will be better than the one before it.
