Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Knights of Castelcorvo is an Italian action-adventure show for kids. There are mysterious and evil characters and prophecies as well as magic. A child is made to disappear, children see ghosts, a boy is physically bullied and his friends are pushed around when they try to intervene. There's a house that's said to belong to two witches called "The Mad Sisters," and anyone who sees them will have all their hair and teeth fall out. Characters display courage.
Is It Any Good?
Despite ominous prophecies and mysterious apparitions, there's nothing scary about this Italian import. The Knights of Castelcorvo is touted as a comedy-drama-mystery-fantasy but fails to sufficiently check even one of those boxes. The storyline is childish, failing in all attempts of suspense or humor, and the central mystery is both vague and dull. Add to that a cast of clearly inexperienced actors, equipped with unnatural and stilted dialogue, and a weird score playing in the background, and the whole thing is a bit like watching an elementary school play. Those looking for an exciting fantasy adventure will surely be disappointed.
