Hulu is getting ready to scare you for a year straight with its new horror anthology series ‘Into the Dark’ which hails from budget horror hitmakers Blumhouse. One new installment arrives each month, with each story revolving around a specific holiday. Fittingly, of course, the first installment, ‘The Body’ centers on Halloween and arrives in October. The film is a remake of a short directed by Paul Davis, which he also adapted into an anthology film, ‘Patient Seven’ in 2016. Davis co-wrote the ‘Into the Dark’ segment with Paul Fischer. It is described as:
“A sophisticated hitman with a cynical view on modern society finds his work made more difficult when he has to transport a body on Halloween night, but everyone is enamored by what they think is his killer costume.”
The episode, which premiers on October 5th, stars Tom Bateman as Wilkes, Rebecca Rittenhouse as Maggie (pictured above), David Hull as Allan, Aurora Perrineau as Dorothy and ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’’s Ray Santiago as Jack.
The second Thanksgiving-themed episode ‘Flesh & Blood’ hails from director Patrick Lussier (‘My Bloody Valentine’). It was written by Louis Ackerman.
“Kimberly, a teenager suffering from agoraphobia, has not left the house since her mother’s murder, which remains unsolved. While under the care of her doting father on the eve of Thanksgiving, Kimberly begins to suspect that she is in danger, and that it’s always the ones you love that hurt you the most.”
This episode will premiere on November 2, 2018. It features Dermot Mulroney as Henry, Diana Silvers as Kimberly, Tembi Locke as Kimberly’s therapist and Meredith Salenger.
Though these two are the only episodes whose details have been revealed, in the trailer, there seem to be clips from other holidays including a very creepy Easter installment. Check it out below:
