Critic Reviews for Katla: Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

In what is a slow-moving, Stygian and enigmatic eight-part series (Icelandic with English subtitles) there's a beguiling mystery about heartbreak.

Katla can be frustrating with how many questions it piles atop of one another without even having provided an answer to the mysteries near the bottom, but it's also one of those shows that want to knock the entire house of cards down at once.

Ready Steady Cut

Katla's eeriness is also the byproduct of its sluggish tempo. For a show in which clones mysteriously appear near a dangerously active volcano, Katla resists the urge to rush things.

Reveling in the bleak beauty of Vik's dramatic landscape, it offers up an ominous supernatural mystery. Guðrún Ýr Eyfjörð leads an impressive ensemble cast as Grima, sister of the missing woman Ása.

The Daily Dot

Katla has an intriguing idea behind it.
