Creepy, with good tension building
6 January 2016 | by katieintorontoSee all my reviews

  • No Spoilers - I've never read (or heard of) the books, so just watched this as a stand alone rather than comparing. Based on other reviews, it's better that way. I found it to be well done: good suspense building up through the first episode (that's all that's been on so far here), with enough creepiness to keep you jumpy. The evil characters are suitably evil, the mystery seems complex and possibly dangerous, and it's not yet clear how this will play out, which keeps you watching. I like the way the lead character plays the part, as something of a normal-ish Mum who's muddling along, as much as anything; although that said, it's a bit puzzling that she would have wanted to be an exorcist. Possibly that comes out later. A bit cliché, but so far it's working for me and I'd call it generally well done. I'll definitely tune in for the next episode.
