Netflix's Castlevania performed magic by hitting my childhood nostalgia while offering my adult self something substantial and exciting.
The addled attention spans of video gamers drawn to Netflix's new Castlevania animated series will not be unduly strained. The first season is -- like Dracula's fangs -- short, potent, and dripping with reasons to want more.
With the aid of Netflix, we get a legitimate show that's really easy to binge-watch. It's even more easier appreciate the work put into transferring the simple story contained in the video game to an interesting narrative.
... Castlevania limps on the same leg as other failed adaptations. [Full review in Spanish]
Castlevania's primary strength is its animation. Even some of the series' bloodiest, dirtiest moments have an element of beauty to them, much like a death metal album cover.
Audience Reviews for Castlevania: Season 1
From Netflix comes Castlevania, an animated horror series based on a popular video game. Written by Warren Ellis, Season 1 follows a rogue warrior named Trevor Belmont who reluctantly comes to the aid of the town of Gresit, which is besieged by Dracula's demon army following the murder of his human wife. While it's billed as a "season" it's really a movie that's been broken into 4 episodes that don't work separately. But even together they don't tell a complete story, and what there is doesn't make much sense; Dracula as a scientist? (WTF) And, the language is very crude and vulgar...for no apparent reason. Borderline incoherent, Season 1 of Castlevania is a mess that doesn't seem to know what it's doing.
