Critic Reviews for The Enfield Haunting: Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

The scares, when they came, were effective.

The subtlety is in the interaction between the characters. That may not be enough for viewers expecting either an intellectual puzzle or a thrill ride, but it could scare up some viewers.

This straight faced and non-dramatized approach to the horror genre is what makes The Enfield Haunting's antiquated storytelling feel so refreshing.

October 11, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a pretty safe introduction to the genre for young people, but as far as older viewers are concerned, that's precisely the problem.

Word has it that Timothy Spall was so freaked out by the storyline that he nearly bailed on the part. Thankfully he didn't and he is at his best here.

Let's hope they manage to maintain this level of spooky tension throughout the remaining two episodes, as this could be the best British ghost story we've seen on TV in years.
