Black Summer: Season 1 (2019)




Critic Consensus: Black Summer has enough undead carnage and a sinewy pace to please zombie fans, but the series suffers from scant characterization and doesn't add much storytelling meat to the genre's gnawed-on bone.

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (3)

A bleak, dull affair that mistakes camera movement for narrative energy and has about as much life as the walking dead.
