The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell is everything I hoped for


The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell is everything I thought it would be and more! If you love desserts and horror, this is the show for you.

If you read the announcement about the new, spooky Netflix original cooking show The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell, you may know how much of a fan girl I was about this show. I have been a fan of her photography work for years and own her cookbook.

While there’s no way in hell I could ever accomplish any of those recipes in any capacity (I am not crafty AT ALL), I love seeing the creepy creations that come from the mind of Christine McConnell.

So, was the show any good? Did it live up to the mile high pedestal that I put it on?

YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS! You may be able to read my enthusiasm; then again you may not but let me explain. Before the show came out, we heard there would be spooky sweets, Dita Von Teese and puppets from a Jim Henson studio.

If that ALONE doesn’t intrigue you, then you are either literally dead or have terrible taste in shows and spend your nights watching reruns of…Happy Days, I don’t know. Anyway, I sat down determined not to move until I had seen it all and I loved every single second of it. Not only that, I know what I’m giving my family for gifts this Krampasnacht.

The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell stars McConnell as her fabulous self, Michael Oosteram as my favorite snarky mummy cat Rankle, Colleen Smith as the sexually active raccoon Rose, Mick Ignis as gentle giant Edgar, Dita Von Teese as saucy Vivianne, and Adam Mayfield as love interest Norman. McConnell lives in a gorgeous house atop a hill with her creations come to life. Her creations and best friends are an undead feline with a god complex and a roadkill raccoon that can’t stop hitting on everything and eating.

With the arrival of hairy beast, Edgar, the family grows even more. Her neighbors aren’t fans of the unconventional family due to all of the gnome humping, attempted murder and howling at night, but that doesn’t faze Christine as she spends every day showering her little family with love.

I thought the heart of this show would be a how-to on her creepy creations, but it is really only second to the story-line and the dynamic relationships between the characters, and I don’t hate that one bit. This show is gorgeous in its design (I WILL have her cabinets one day), sweet in more ways than one, hilarious and filled to the brim with snarky dialogue and sarcasm and is just creepy enough to keep my spooky heart in love.

My ONLY complaint was that it was too short. I can only hope for more seasons in the future and more from The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell. The first season is now streaming on Netflix.
