‘Preacher’ Recap: S1E4 ‘Monster Swamp’

The (Dead) Cold Opening

What do Preacher and The Simpsons have in common? Besides the fact that they both air on Sundays, they both know how to open an episode in a wonderfully off-beat way. And this week is no exception. Preacher is a horror-comedy that’s always look to put a little more emphasis on the scary part, and this opening scene is like something from a slasher film. Scantily clad women running for their lives? Check. Mysterious men with riffles slowly chasing them down? You got it. Moody music? Of course. Dead streets? Uh-huh. Lots of tension? All there. And while things are not always what they seem, they certainly know how to come in for the kill when the time is right. And they slay it, raw. Keep it up, guys and gals.
