We are now in the thick of October, meaning we are inching closer to Halloween. It is officially time to carve your pumpkins, cover your homes in synthetic fiber spider webs, and hand out disgusting Candy Corn. Most importantly, it is the time of year we give the Horror genre our undivided attention.
Netflix has been embracing the season, streaming numerous classic horror films and original horror programming like The Haunting of Hill House, and in this spirit, we're getting a new season of Castlevania.
The show, adapted by Warren Ellis from the popular gaming franchise of the same name, centers on the land of Wallachia and the heroes fighting desperately to save it against a powerful supernatural foe on a quest for vengeance.
The first season was a largely satisfying effort, with a solid mythos, a worthy antagonist and religious commentary. There was also plenty of death, which is good when it has a purpose. With the second season due October 26th, there is plenty to look forward to as we delve deeper into the war for Wallachia.
