Would have loved to have "seen" this, but once again, it's visually too dark for me.
I skipped ahead and saw that the series does brighten up in places, but once again (and it's only seems to be happening recently with newer offerings) the producers must be skimping on the electricity bills, because I am finding a lot of new series to be visually way too dark for my eyes. My eyesight is fine, by the way. But when I have to peer into the screen too long it's tiresome and eye-straining. For example: the scene in which Brody describes the family paintings to his children in their "new" home: Why did the director make the faces nearly invisible? They seemed to be leering or snarling (I got that much out of the scene) but come on! Give us a little something more to go on than a near-total black-out. Is it not possible to show "darkness" without an actual black-out? I love Adam Brody and Stephen King, but unfortunately, this gave me a headache and I am not going to strain my eyes any more than twenty minutes in. Darn it. C'est la vie.

Finally - good writing and great old fashioned horror
Through episode 3, the writing, creeping sense of horror and dread, with just enough mystery, keep the viewing wanting more. Casting is excellent, plot is not predictable, but keeps one guessing trying to out fox the show creators. Easter eggs and references to 'Salem's Lot and Jerusalem's Lot abound. There is a smidgen of wokeness, but it fits in well and isn't a diversion. (Thus far).

The music and atmosphere compliment the story, cast, and history.

So far, excellent and worth the time. Epix teases with 3 episodes and then goes weekly. Which is to be expected as streaming services are finally realizing they can't survive allowing folks to binge 9 series in a month or week. I'm still trying to decide if I'll wait and binge the rest, or deal with the weekly anticipation.

If you like classic horror, this will be a creepy welcome home.

Salem's Lot It Is Not
This is a hodgepodge of elements taken from other King works stewed together to leave the viewer with indigestion and a desire to eat no more. So many references to King but no understanding of what makes his best work so effective. The story in Chapelwaite seems to be in search of a plot and a period as the language and concepts do not ring true to the era. The sudden appearance of Nosferatu works about as well as having a Great White Shark intrude in the middle of "Rosemary's Baby." Vivid gore early on bludgeons the viewer leaving the horror nowhere to go; character development is weak or squandered, suspense is lost by too many detours into peripheral and stale characters. Madness, trickery, evil spirits, dracula, evil human beings, bullies, buckets of blood, it is all dumped on the viewer a la "Carrie" but with none of that film's qualities. I would deduct half a star for misuse of Adrien Brody.

Tedious and woke
This seems to have more to do with "correct thinking" than the slow, plodding, tiresome dragging out of what was my favorite stephen king story. This is just miscast garbage that never seems to build up to much until it does and then its PG-13 instead of the indescribable horror that is the original short story. Mixed in with plenty of woke takes on race that they become predictable (of course the good guy is a black kid who likes the non-white daughter of the protag, who is falling in with his rebellious liberal educated strong woman who don't need no man etc).

Love this series
I love intelligent horror and this is actually enjoyable. Most horror movies now are written for cheap scares for teenagers or have blood and gore everywhere trying to be scary. Chapelwaite delivers both but elevated to make viewing a fun experience. The acting is good and characters believable, the storyline is well written, and the pace builds suspense. I love Adrian Brody and he just elevates the interest in his character even further. I cant wait for the next episodes.
For the complaints about the movie being too dark; that goes with the storyline. There was no electricity, things were dark at night and inside during the day. The movie is dark in keeping with the time period and helps to add foreboding but I do not feel it is too dark to enjoy the movie. I agree some movies are too dark but this is not one of them.

Brilliant!
Although this adaptation of Stephen King's short story adds so many more characters and side stories, I am really enjoying this. Normally I prefer a movie/show to stick to the original as much as possible, but they really did a great job adding to Stephen King's story. There are scenes where you feel like you know what is coming, but then it is presented in a way that you didn't expect. There are lots of great jumps and scares. I just watched the first 3 episodes and was very pleased. The music was a great accompaniment to the setting, which is dark and brooding. The costumes, hairstyles, and decor were all authentic and on point for the time period.

If you are looking for a suspenseful and scary story, Chapelwaite will not disappoint you. It sets a mood and drags you right into the story. I can't wait to see more!!

The Worm is Above Average.
First, the positives (without any spoilers). This is an adaptation of one of Stephen King's best short stories, "Jerusalem's Lot," which was a precursor to the iconic novel. The cinematography is stunningly beautiful in places (being filmed in Nova Scotia), and there are some excellent performances by Brody and others. However the series (necessarily) diverges quite a bit from King's original, and not all of the additions work. Also, the wording, dialogue, and interaction of the characters often seem uncharacteristically modern for the time, and it has the effect of pulling the viewer out of the period and ruining the mood. We're not asking for four hours of verified verbiage of the 1880s, but please refrain from language that makes one wonder if you're watching a period piece or a Tik Tok video. To sum up, if you can overlook that, it's worth watching (for the cinematography). Not sure if we'll be viewing the second season.
