I can't yet tell you if Marianne turns out to be classy trick or a clever treat. But I'm looking forward to finding out, from my safe, dry spot behind the sofa.

The series eschews a lot of genre tropes and tricksiness, making it all the more involving.

I'm just going to tell you right away: this series is likely to give you nightmares.

Oct 14, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

With nods to Stephen King, director Samuel Bodin creates a refreshing take on the writer going back home to deal with her demons.

Oct 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The series intelligently uses the perimeter of the town, animated with forests and lakes, old houses, abandoned laboratories. [Full Review in Spanish]

Sep 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Great start with the two first episodes but after that it descends into being a bag full of cliches, boring melodrama and a obnoxious main character. [Full review in Spanish].

Marianne remains terrifying until its climactic, exorcism-filled end. But when I remember the show, I'll remember those eyes.

Sep 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Marianne will likely satisfyingly scratch your itch for scary stuff.

Sep 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Marianne is nightmares personified.

Sep 19, 2019 | Full Review…

The coastal setting, the author as protagonist and literary nightmares brought to life reveal Marianne was made firmly under the influence of Stephen King, but that's fine with us. At least it's not set in the '80s.

Sep 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Marianne is a series that embodies classic horror while simultaneously adding its own unique style. It's terrifying- and somehow manages to be loads of fun.

Audience Reviews for Marianne: Season 1

    I absolutely loved it. I love me some horror, but most of the genre falls short for me (see last 3 seasons of AHS comapred to the first 3) Marianne sent chills down my spine, left me looking around my house in broad daylight, and affected me in a way that only 2 other horror tropes have. (Hereditary and May. I know. I'm weird) I loved the cinematography, scenery, dialogue, the friendship angle of the Ship Wreck Gang, and the disturbing imagery. It was all a win for me. The actress who plays Emma is fresh and intriguing; able to pull off being that self centered writer character while still being loveable. I saw so many that hated it, but I put this right up there next to Haunting of Hill House.

    The best horror I've seen in a long time. Excellent writing, direction and acting. I only wish I could get people to watch it 😔

    From what I seen I can say they have mastered the use of the tools available, great use of sound and really like the photography, it keeps me at the edge of my seat.

    A must-see horror tv series, the best show ever made.

    Absolutely terrifying, masterfully written. Fingers crossed for season 2!

    It started out great and there are a few good moments throughout but as it went on it got more nonsensical. The comedy sprinkled throughout was funny but unfortunately took away from the creepiness. Lots of hommage to horror movies (even anime) which was interesting but it got to the point where it was distracting. It was way overhyped on social media and it feels disappointing that it did not deliver to the degree that was advertised.

    I liked the show and it was definitely scary, but it was WAY too long. I would have given it 5 stars if it were a movie. I found the lead actress a bit annoying but the actress who played the younger version of her was really good. And her mom was very good too.

    Creepy! Scary! Extremely well made. Highly recommended if you are a horror show fan!
