Critic Reviews for The Killing Season Season 1

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Not nearly enough fresh information on the Long Island case, and cluttered with tangents that seem to lead nowhere, The Killing Season still makes its case - a terrifying one.

n the style of the series' Oscar-winning producer Alex Gibney, it combines lots of interviews, archival footage, scenes of tense encounters, and other elements that make it equally substantive and sensational.

Too often, the series replicates the salacious tabloid coverage it aims to displace.

The documentarians are also skilled entertainers, which may explain why The Killing Season tends to err on the side of warning the audience that monsters walk among us.

Audience Reviews for The Killing Season: Season 1

  • Apr 24, 2019
    Painful. It starts out with good momentum, but the investigators are lazy. They use the same mindset/investigative tool for every person. They lack interest and it simply feels gross. Rather than actually put a lead to rest, if it is not easy to investigate (or illegal because they have no police cooperation) they simply let it drop from the discussion. They make their conclusions without evidence and perhaps even with bias. Impossible to say how they came to support any conclusion since they don't explain.
