Critic Consensus: While it pales in compassion to the classics it references, "Flesh & Blood" is an entertaining B-movie with two compelling performances at its core.

Critic reviews for Flesh & Blood
As Flesh & Blood becomes more predictable, the filmmaking doesn't tighten like it needs to in order to go from mystery to thriller.
The central mystery of the episode is good enough to be entertaining, and Silvers and Dermot Mulroney give solid performances. That being said, the episode leans too much into B-horror schlock.
This episode is easily the best of the two(so far)! A twisted piece of dramatic horror with two excellent lead performances. Loved the moments of homage to The Shining.
There's plenty of potential in "Flesh & Blood," especially since the installment references a bunch of classic horror, but it still feels like a pulpy pale comparison of those films rather than something that evolves the form.
Silvers does a good job finding the right balance between an average teenager and unprocessed trauma survivor.
