News & Interviews for Lovecraft Country: Season 1
Considering the track record of all involved, they seem to have had unfettered freedom, and that license is a sword that cuts both ways. But when it works, it works brilliantly.
For every fun, if wildly anachronistic, element, Lovecraft Country is always careful to re-center itself on its characters, and their hemmed-in status as Black women and men in 1950s America.
Right now, between the messy narrative, bendable rules, and buckets of blood, it's just too hard to get a grip on "Lovecraft Country."
Lovecraft Country has an extraordinary ability to wink and keep a straight face at the same time, to be fun and serious simultaneously.
Misha Green was not responding to George Floyd when she wrote this episode-she was responding to the history of police violence visited upon people whose skin has been kissed by the sun. The only thing that's new is the mythical beings who save them.
The rules of the world Green has created remain confounding. Still, there's enough reason to watch, but patience will be necessary to see where it all will ultimately lead.
There is no doubt Lovecraft Country is a thoroughly enjoyable, pulpy romp... There are flaws but the conviction and energy in Green's vision shines through.
While it stumbles now and then, Lovecraft Country stands out from the TV pack
Lovecraft Country does a lot of powerful work that's wonderfully informed by genre filmmaking, making for an entertaining series of episodes.
Lovecraft Country is a perfect case study for what can be achieved when one embraces the endless possibilities that comes with diversity.
The two leads have great chemistry which serves them well as they navigate the plot.
Audience Reviews for Lovecraft Country: Season 1
Dec 14, 2020Lots of promise that seemed to be going nowhere. I abandoned after 3 episodes.
Dec 14, 2020This series is very impactful and thought provoking. The series suffers from pacing problems. Some things are glossed over and others move too slow. However, the characters come to life, and you really root for them. These juxtaposition of mythical monsters with the monsters of racism stand out. It's a great series but not perfect.
Nov 19, 20201/10 for the secrecy climate 2/10 for lovecraft elements such a monsters, magic. 1/10 for putting sects, thats pretty a lovecraft element. 1/10 for putting the element of 'madness'/ 'frenzy' on the characters where at some point they suffer. not points on context, writing, script, plot, character developing and ending. just a 5/10. not recommended if you are expecting a lovecraft novel. its racism 50' on the black community USING lovecraft elements.
Nov 19, 2020The acting is amazing, the storytelling was emotional and it made me emphasize with the characters. I just read the book so I actually liked the tv series better however the last few minutes lost me and left me with more questions then I really want to dig for.
Nov 13, 2020RIP OFF OF COMMON HORROR STORIES. NOTHING ORIGINAL.
Nov 13, 2020More of like Stranger Things Adult Version gosh
Nov 12, 2020It can be daunting, but if you're willing to watch closely and listen carefully Lovecraft Country offers a cornucopia of adventure and Easter eggs in packaging that feels wholly original.
Nov 12, 2020Cool and nice show/ great motion graphic. Like
Nov 12, 2020I really wanted to like the show, and I just can't understand why it has attracted so many rabid fans. Peele is great, I love his stuff, and the first couple episodes held my attention, but this one just sank into a quagmire of confused, muddled plot lines and lost focus around the 5th episode. Normally I can even continue to watch disintegrating shows to see what happens at the end at least...this one I just dropped after the 5th episode, and I really don't regret..
Nov 12, 2020I get it. Racism is horrible and black people had a lot of wrong done to them. Let's smash people over the heads with that message until the people who need to hear it most tune out from the show. 1. Not Lovecraftian at all. I get it though, it's based on a book that wasn't Lovecraftian at all. Still feel jerked around though. 2. 1-dimensional white villainy. Seriously? Not one single good white person in the show ever? (SPOILER) They even pay lipservice to "race crusaders" but we don't see them, because that's what this show is really about: a stupidly simple dichotomy. In the end they take down one non-racist lady who wants immortality -- and oh crap, she's white? Okay, "ban all white people from magic". You see folks? Race-based decrees are a GOOD thing! (END) 3. Christina acts out the murder of Emmit Till, perhaps to develop some kind of empathy for the boy. This has no effect on her character or personality, has no impact on the show, and is never discussed again. It just gets immediately forgotten about, as if they played it for shock & awe. It cheapened the reality of his death by stripping away how traumatic such an experience would be. 4. (SPOILER) Bury your gays, am I right? Ruby realizes she's gay one moment, only to suffer an off-screen death with zero dialogue. (END) Altogether it felt disjointed, confusing, and inconsequential. What socially impactful messages it could communicate were done so at a volume and repetitiveness that any wisdom or tutelage was lost in the horrid writing. "WHITE PEOPLE BAD, BLACK PEOPLE GOOD" - We get it! After 10 hours of this drudgery, (SPOILER) you don't need to color the friendly monster black and all the evil monsters white to communicate this further! (END) How does anyone enjoy this show?
