This is pretty good. Slow burn...creepy as hell. Great acting everywhere.

From episode 5, I love how they recreated a sense of sleep paralysis in the scene with Green Hoodie speaking to the detective's wife. I felt that just from watching...you could feel that heaviness. Great directing and editing.

Just saw the first few episodes. Looks intriguing. I don't ever watch Stephen King stuff because I don't like horror stuff. This doesn't feel like a horror show so far, but it sounds like something supernatural will be popping up very soon.

EDIT:

Got to episode 5. Immediately turned off now that I've found out it's about the devil or something. Thought it was going to be something cool, instead.

It's actually better than book, which is a good sign because the ending of the book was atrocious so hopefully they don't use it.

A Stephen King book with a shitty ending? No way!

I like it okay - I'm only 2 deep into it - I like it was filmed in Stockbridge and Gainesville, Ga. Also it's neat seeing the Quality Foods sign over and over. But right now - the older series The Sinner has my full attention. So damned good.

2 Episodes in so far and enjoying it. Hard to binge watch though because it is in fact a slow burn.

Starts out great, and gets worse. I hope these last 2-3 episodes redeem itself. I've been disappointed because of who/what it ends up being, but it is well produced.

Was insanely good right up until the autistic supernatural crap came into play. I know it's a Stephen King novel but damn could they have at least made it somewhat realistic.

I don't like the director, I would never give him another project to direct if it were me. They have too few pages and too many episodes to fill. It's beyond a slow burn, it's like paint drying. I wish I hadn't started watching all the episodes. I liked it better when I thought it was an alien. If someone showed me that much evidence connecting 3 different people in 3 different locations, I would sit up and take notice, not go off on a tangent, El cuco.

Same, except I'll probably keep watching to see how it turns out. But starting losing interest when it pointed to some supernatural monster or something. I feel like it's such a easy way out in these stories--start with an intriguing murder mystery, then it turns out it's a shape-shifting monster or time travel portal or demon ghost or some shit. There's no rules that way and you can just do anything you want because a mystery alien monster did it.

First 4 or 5 episodes had me on the edge of my seat.

The last few...not so much.

The Holly character is acted well, but she has basically no flaws and can figure out the answer to everything almost immediately which makes her pretty boring. Everytime she calls the creature "El Cuco" it makes me cringe. I get that it's based on a real legend, but the name just sounds super childish and cheesy.

Also we've spent 3 episodes on Ben Mendelsohn, who started off as a really interesting character, just walking around with his arms crossed and frowning. What a waste of a really promising character.

Idk. I'm going to watch the last couple episodes, but i'm afraid this one is going to go down as a show that had great potential but couldn't stick the landing.
