Lore: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Lore: Season 1 (2017)




Critic Consensus: Subtle and spooky, Lore's horror-laden history lessons take on new life on the small screen, though it sticks too closely to the podcast's original format to truly distinguish itself.

Tv Season Info

Based on the podcast phenomenon and narrated by creator Aaron Mahnke, this haunting six-episode anthology series is brought to life by the executive producer of The Walking Dead and the executive producer of The X-Files. Throughout history, fear was best kept buried. But folklore opens the door, allowing stories to creep inside and haunt us. The scariest stories are true. -- (C) AMAZON

Adapted for television from a popular podcast - the first time I've written those words; no doubt, not the last - Aaron Mahnke's Lore is worth a look.

Such effective audio storytelling already left its mark on the podcast world, and the Amazon adaptation doesn't elevate things at all. If anything, it's less effective because you can't watch it in your car or while out for a jog.

If you like your terror TV served up with some dark and disturbing flourishes, "Lore" will leave you screaming for more.

Lore almost plays like an educational program - and that's what makes it so terrifying.

The idea behind this anthology series is so good, it's a shame the result is this dull.

An interesting but unspectacular addition to the horror genre, Lore, perhaps, works best in its original form.
