Critic Consensus: With its clever blend of comedic skills and horrific thrills, "The Body" initially intrigues, but its thin plotting and stock characters fail to sufficiently fill the feature length run-time.

Critic reviews for The Body
This one is a tonal mess, but there's reason to believe that Blum and his team could find a gem in here somewhere. They've got 11 more months to dig.
Blumhouse knows to make a lot of a little, and the grim city locations and well-written interactions between cast members make "The Body" fun to watch.
The biggest problem with "The Body" is that it feels like a riff. Part of that is due to the simple concept, and a larger part is due to the writing.
The Body has a lot going on, which is one of the many reasons it's the right way to kick off Hulu's entire year of scares.
This episode was genuinely hilarious! A great script with so much dark comedy and actually disturbing material.
