Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The two main actresses who play Amy and Raquel, the demon-hunting duo, have excellent chemistry and terrific comedic timing. But most of the (often crude) humor in this comedy-horror-drama is overshadowed by the constant sense that something bad is about to happen, which it usually does. This tension could be good for viewers who like that sort of comedy-thriller. But for teens looking for a comedy, the demon transformations, spooky exorcisms, and bloody endings may short-circuit the laughs. What's not good for many teens is the way Crazyhead mixes mental illness with demonic possession. This may be confusing for some teens struggling with real-life mental health issues, as well as stigmatizing. Even as the main characters bond and support each other in their plight as "seers," the mixed message and demonization of a psychiatrist and other family members may be the series' most frightening part of all.
