Salem

Critics Consensus

While the horror scenes are well-executed, Salem lacks enough substance to sustain even a guilty-pleasure interest.

Audience Reviews for Salem: Season 1

  • Mar 26, 2020
    It's bonkers, but I love it. Some delightfully gruesome scenes that make you scream and laughter at the same time.
  • Sep 17, 2019
    I thought it was pretty good. First couple episodes were slow, but it picked up dramatically
  • May 27, 2019
    Just finished the first series on Netflix. Pretty muted watched all the episodes back to back. Great horror series, gripping story line, lots of super acting looking forward to watching the next series.
  • Dec 14, 2018
    Deconstruct and analyse it all you want. I just think it's absolute shite.
  • Sep 10, 2017
    Really enjoying this show about the witches of Salem.
  • Aug 25, 2017
    We love this series! We didn't like John Alden.
  • Jul 13, 2017
    Literally the best series I've came across, constant suspense and leaving me with my mouth dropped to the floor!
  • Jul 11, 2016
    A violent interesting twist on the Salem Witch Trials.
  • Jun 25, 2016
    The show is good. I like it. Some of the scenes are weird. The acting is a little poor in some scenes but other scenes are intense. It's violent and not good for kids. But I like this show a lot. I wish the lead female witch would be a little more dynamic. She's a strong character and I think if she was more animated and more dynamic the show would be much better.
  • Apr 22, 2016
    Starts off muddled, little slow, and predictable. However after the 5th episode I became a huge fan. Bravo to the actors..
