Critics Consensus

Deborah Ayorinde and Ashley Thomas' gripping performances help Them sustain a sufficient sense of terror, but its blunt and bloody approach undermines any social commentary in favor of more superficial horrors.

    I loved this show. It was heart-wrenching, terrifying, and the acting is just incomparable! (Especially little Gracie Emory! I believe her name is Melody Hurd?) The fact that the creator used supernatural evil, as well as the hate & evil inside people…it was one of the scariest shows I've seen! (I also cried!!…) I'm not kidding— this is every emotion, except maybe laughter. (Well, little Gracie is too cute, so try not to crack a smile at her of course!) I won't say too much about race, except to say it IS a show about the hatred that lives in white people. It is to say it didn't JUST reside in the southern part of the US, at a time when many migrated out west to find reprieve from it. So yes… even in Compton, CA, whites were disgusting when it came to the treatment of people with different color skin. It will be eye-opening to many— especially young people. It is an important conversation for us ALL though…uncomfortable as it may be. Anyway, it is certainly not MY place to comment on race relations in the 50's, other than to speak on this piece of work. And in conclusion: the show is fantastic! The storyline is perfect— never know what's gonna happen! I gave it 4.5 stars only because, well… it's not GoT. Lol. Can't wait for season 2! I'm currently rewatching it with my husband, who is addicted already!

    Like one of Ryan Murphy's longer "American Horror Story" seasons, Little Marvin's "Them" wanders a lot as it follows a black family fleeing North Carolina to settle in California. With a father suffering PTSD from his war service and a mother, the traumatized victim of a horrifically cruel crime, this family is dealing with a lot even before they are confronted with racist neighbors and visitors from beyond. While I found the show beautifully shot and acted and binge-watched it in three nights, I can understand the complaints of many viewers. As the story progresses, exactly what is actually happening grows less and less clear as the characters seem to descend into madness. At some point I let go of expecting narrative clarity and accepted the tale for what was unmistakable: this was a story of people wrestling with their demons – demons that plagued not just them but their ancestors and the injuries they caused would be passed down to their children. I've known people who carry this burden; "Them" puts you in their nightmares.

    Brilliant! A masterpiece! Please watch, you will not be disappointed, left me wanting more!

    I so wanted to be scared by this show but in reality it was so creepy I couldn't finish it. Absolutely suspenseful and had me peeking through my fingers. Let me know how it ends!

    This show started so good, but it completely fell apart towards the end. The ambiguity of what the family was seeing is what made it so eerie. It could've been trauma, it could've just been metaphorical, it could've been anything. But they just had to make it real with some flashback. Still absolutely worth a watch for the first 2/3 of the show, which rarely fails to make you feel uneasy. It's just a shame it went the way it did.

    The premise is good - a black family moving into a white neighborhood - and it stated that it was based upon true events - so I started to watch it. However, once monsters and imaginary people started showing up, I got turned off. I watched the first season, and will not be watching anymore episodes. I will try to find something a little bit more intelligent to watch.

    A very well done production of despicable hate- & fear-fueled behavior. Layering a horror story on top of actual horrific situations.
  • Jan 09, 2022
    Lowest of low ratings, awful. - Remove it!
  • Oct 02, 2021
    Transformando el horror psicológico que es el racismo en épocas pasadas a un terror más profundo al mostrar como los traumas de la familia principal cobran vida en su forma sobrenatural.
