Common Sense Media

The Terror has a judicious hand with its monster story, using it mostly to add an extra top note of dread to the interpersonal conflict and imposing might of near-eternal winter.

The Terror got my full attention from beginning to end. I couldn't turn away. I didn't want to turn away. For me, that's extremely rare.

TV Fanatic

"As the title suggests, The Terror is interested in fear itself, how it transforms us, how it turns us cruel and savage... it conjures a piercing dread, both familiar and inconceivable; a portrait of man and nature at their cruelest and coldest."
