Critic Reviews for Swamp Thing Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (2)

There are like four shows competing for air in this swamp, and right now, only one of them is interesting.

There's still a great show in there somewhere, and perhaps one day it might be fully-realised. But for the time being, despite its very capable first half, Swamp Thing is just another show.

Aug 21, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

[The finale] wraps up the series well enough under the circumstances, but Swamp Thing deserves better than one single, truncated season.

Aug 7, 2019 | Rating: 7.3/10 | Full Review…

In its initial form, the series is a messy, sweaty and genuinely scary romp in the swamp that embraces nature's dark side - murderous vines and all.

Jul 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The greatest strength of episode one by far was its unbelievable use of practical effects.

Wan's new series, which can be especially frightening when it chooses to be, also opts in for more horror than not.

Jul 13, 2019 | Full Review…

With a compelling plot, an appealing cast and impressive gore effects, this is shaping up to be a highly entertaining series.

Jul 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Every week, Swamp Thing produces a stronger episode and a better case for why we need this show.

Jul 13, 2019 | Full Review…

A particular eco-thriller that improves as it gets closer to physical and vegetable terror. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 11, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Long-time stuntman and actor Derek Mears is the man inside the suit. Hats off to the team who put Swamp Thing's suit together because it looks awesome.

Jun 7, 2019 | Rating: 8.2/10 | Full Review…

It isn't that Swamp Thing is bad, but it is certainly nowhere near as ambitious as Titans or Doom Patrol. Is it unfair to judge it that way? It's difficult to say, but it's much safer to say that the audience will be doing the same.

Jun 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Sci-fi meets Southern Gothic in gory, gross suspense series.
