Critic Reviews for Castle Rock: Season 2

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (6)

A lot of horror anthologies hinge on concept instead of character or performance, but I'm happy to see "Castle Rock" bucking that trend.

What's here is still effective, affecting, and original - despite appearances.

While the second season doesn't end on quite the slam-bang note that the first did, it does a very solid job of tying this season into Misery proper, leaving the door wide open for what might happen in the show's next iteration.

March 2, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Despite some potential lost, we still got a character-driven, compelling season, with the sensation of something old, dreadful and especially eerie seeping out of the history of Castle Rock into its new inhabitants.

It's a dark ending, to be sure, but the right one.

October 31, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Season 2 evokes the best Stephen King adaptations by ramping up the pacing, dread, and slasher flick fun in a way the first season didn't.
