Decent enough, not strong
29 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

The Enfield Haunting was a three part show that I was definitely looking forward to watching. As a horror fan, I was excited to watch it, and very happily binged all three episodes in one sitting. I think that maybe expecting it to be more on the horror side was a mistake on my part, but it fell flat for me.

The Enfield Haunting is based more within grief, and how grief affects those it chooses to haunt. This was done very well within The Enfield Haunting. All actors and actresses really brought it to life, and it was an immense feeling of goosebumps and chills for the viewers.

However, the show seemed to lack as it went on. There was potential for a lot more, and it made me cringe a little to see how it just got more boring. The jump scares were mere cheap thrills, cheap tactics over used in horror films and not something that would really affect anyone that watches horror on a large scale. For a television show, more aimed at people who aren't huge horror fans, this was well done, but it bored me out of my skin.

The story line got more and more jumbled and things didn't feel like they were closed at the end, and I think more could have been done. Another episode might have done good in clearing everything up, and frankly, I feel like I wasted my time watching this.

The characters are good, but the plot is pretty sub par, and that for me, was a real killer. It was a shame, truly. I would have liked this to be a seven or eight star review, but six feels too generous as it is.
