Throughout all my reviews of the first season of Damien, I have maintained that it is a very smart horror show. It wasn’t about the blood and guts that is so popular in today’s horror and it wasn’t about the jump scares and screaming attractive teenagers of yesteryear either. Damien has been able to not only bring in the best of those elements, but also make something entirely its own. It was hard for many to wrap their heads around it at first. They wanted it spoon fed to them. Why think about an antichrist that has a conscience and may not want to do this or even believe it, when he could be out taking over the world already? Now, now, now. I like that showrunner Glen Mazzara and his writers rejected this and instead brought us the thinker that is Damien.
I didn’t think the episode, The Devil You Know, could top the drama of last week, but I was very, very, wrong. Spoilers for episode nine!
Here are my reactions to episode eight, Here is Wisdom and episode nine, The Devil You Know. I’m glad to finally be caught up so I can enjoy tonight’s finale and give it my full attention. Watch out for that review later this week.
