Review : I know I’m a little late on this but I missed the episode last week, so I decided to wait for it to come back on yesterday. I tell you this though, I was very excited for this show to come out, like I was literally counting the days. I know that it might be a little to early to say this but I think that this show will surpass The Walking Dead, yes after watching the first episode I believe it will be that good.
The acting in this show was very good, they have some very solid, well known actors in this show, including one of my all time favorite actors as a kid, Sean Astin. All of them did a great job with their roles and I am extremely excited to see how there characters evolve and develop throughout the show.
Now lets talk about the episode, the story was very well done. In this episode we basically learn what is going on and why this stuff is happening. We also get a first look at the vampires that will be in this show and to be honest, they look pretty scary and creepy. The vampires kind of look like the vampire s from Blade 2 or some zombies from Resident Evil, these vampires have some long tongues that attach to the persons skin and suck the blood right out of their victim.It is also killing me to figure out what the main creature is that spread the disease in the first place, he looks absolutely bad ass. So the make up and special effects for the vampires are very well done and do a good job with giving the show a scary vibe.
The episode has plenty of gory scenes, like we see a lot of blood and guts for a television show, I absolutely loved that. I loved the scene where we first see the group of vampires and they attack the medical examiner, and we see one vampire is attacking the examiner with his guts all over the place, it was fantastic!
Overall this episode was very good and it had me saying “I can’t wait to watch the next one.” It really has that effect on people, it just makes you want to see more. There were plenty of gruesome scenes and the show had a lot of scares as well. we get plenty of thrills and I am looking forward to the rest of the season. I also am interested in seeing how the characters develop, if the show keeps this up, then we will absolutely have an amazing new horror show to watch, and we all know there isn’t many of them. If you haven’t watched it yet I highly recommend that you start watching. You wont regret it!
I give this episode a 10/10
