‘Ravenswood’ Review: Scared to Death

So that happened. The mid-season finale has come and gone but has it left you begging for more? I have to say that these five episodes have left me feeling a little disappointed. There were parts that had me rolling my eyes and “Scared to Death” was no exception.

‘Ravenswood’ Review: The Devil Has a Face

Our five teens are recovering from the seance. Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) is sitting in a towel, struggling for words to write in an email to Hanna (Ashley Benson) while Miranda (Nicole Gale Anderson) is popping up ogling the half-naked Caleb. That might not be completely true but the girl-ghost is developing feelings for her coach mate. With Remy’s (Britne Oldford) help, Caleb meets Henry, his namesakes brother. A game of chess, a weird visit and a set of keys make for more confusing going-ons.

‘Ravenswood’ Review: Believe

‘Ravenswood’ ramped it up another level with an episode better than “Death and the Maiden.” I’m still not completely sold on the show but “Believe” takes a step in the right direction.

‘Ravenswood’ Review: Death and the Maiden

The end of last week’s episode saw the car carrying Caleb (Tyler Blackburn), Remy (Britne Oldford), Miranda (Nicole Gale Anderson), Olivia (Merritt Patterson) and Luke (Brett Dier) drive off the bridge, struggling to get out of the sinking car. If you happened to see any of the released photos before the episode aired, then you would have guessed that one person didn’t survive. Miranda, who grabbed the steering wheel as Remy was driving, died. Miranda was the only one to see the “person” in the road. Miranda’s death felt a bit underwhelming. Was it because I had seen the photos before the episode? The answer to my question is no. There was something missing for me that felt a little disconnected. It’s hard to convey the same kind of emotion for a character’s death when you’ve only just introduced them and the characters on screen know the deceased as long as the viewer. I always say that if you’re gonna have a death within the first couple of episodes then there’s got to be something there to substitute the emotion you usually convey.

‘Ravenswood’ Review: Pilot

We had our glimpse of the creepy town known as Ravenswood in a couple of Pretty Little Liars episodes and now we finally get a weekly appointment. If you’re a Pretty Little Liar fan then I think you won’t be too disappointed. Instead of text messages and the mystery of ‘A’, Ravenswood goes for a more spooky and creepy vibe. Whatever is going on, it doesn’t make you want to advertise the town as a holiday destination. What we do know is things don’t necessarily go bump just at night.
