The Consultant review: Christoph Waltz raises hell in bonkers horror-comedy

Christoph Waltz delivers a chilling performance in The Consultant, a comedy-thriller that blends dark humor with supernatural intrigue. Adapted from Bentley Little’s novel, the series follows the employees of CompWare, a struggling mobile gaming company, as they navigate the arrival of the enigmatic Regus Patoff (Waltz), who claims to have been hired by their late boss for consulting.

Patoff’s presence quickly brings about drastic changes, leading to a tense and sinister atmosphere within the company. As Patoff delves into the personal lives of the employees, including stoner coder Craig (Nat Wolff) and Woo’s assistant Elaine (Brittany O’Grady), it becomes clear that his motives may be more nefarious than they initially seemed. The series blends elements of horror, satire, and supernatural suspense, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats throughout its eight episodes.

Waltz is perfectly cast as the charming yet menacing consultant, delivering a performance that is both captivating and unsettling. O’Grady and Wolff also shine in their respective roles, adding depth and emotion to the story. Despite some heavy-handed symbolism and theological themes, The Consultant is a compelling and darkly funny series that is sure to leave a lasting impression.
