Critic Reviews for Into The Dark Season 1

If only this horror anthology was more, well, horrifying. As is, Into the Dark is more chill than chilling.

Doesn't have to stretch the truth all that much in order to achieve the kind of nightmare-ish immigration scenario that will have you questioning how patriotic you're feeling...

Low brow chills for the morbid.

There's enough comedy in the first half and rousing feminist energy in the second half of 'Treehouse' to inspire a recommendation.

A slow start made me concerned that this Hulu/Blumhouse effort would end up a mediocre quickly forgotten curio. However, if Into the Dark can build on the momentum and attitude of Pooka!, I think they can create some fascinating efforts.

Dec 13, 2018 | Full Review…

It's everything Hitchcock's TV work used to be: Macabre. Smirky. Gaspingly gruesome (though the standards on that are a moonshot away from what they were 60 years ago). And amusingly amoral.

I do enjoy the idea that we only get one feature length episode a month, but they feel half an hour too long.

Smart series has blood, gore, some iffy messages.

    DON'T SEE DOWN. Down was the most simple piece of trash that has ever come to horror. The characters were basic as was the plot. The run time being padded with them doing stupid things without thinking of it through as a normal person would. It had me yelling but not with joy, more of yelling at how dense and simple minded these characters are.

    The quality of the episodes can vary, but this TV series is excellent overall! The episode five, Down, is an addictive episode, which will take you through all possible emotions! This episode earns an additional half star for this series.

    "A Nasty Piece of Work" might be the best horror-comedy writing I have ever experienced. It's seriously funny and twisted, and contains subversive social satire with real teeth. Julian Sands is an absolute riot. Most fun I've had in a while.

    I've only seen 4 of them so far and will update as I watch more. Some I liked, some I didn't. School Spirit: it's like Breakfast Club with ghosts. Kinda campy, kinda cliched, but fun. Not super scary at all. Pure: really loved it. This is the type of horror I live for - no jump scares, no suspense. Instead, the horror comes in the discomfort of thinking about the situation. Down: terrible. Just.... badly acted, badly written. All That We Destroy: great concept, bad execution. Doesn't really go anywhere. Had a lot of potential at the start, but the acting is pretty bad, the special effects are bad (but not in a campy good way), and it fizzles.

    How this awfulness gets high RT ratings is ridiculous. Mostly terrible acting, very low budget, endless banality nonsense talks... often deeply boring and uninteresting. There are some good ideas but total fail to get it properly executed. This is by far the worst I have seen.

    This Hulu show consists of twelve horror films per season (so far). The installments come once a month and each are influenced often very loosely by a holiday. (They had to reach for some months. August was the end of school and September was Daughters Day. Still not sure what March was supposed to be.) This is basically a not-quite-ready-for-primetime-players equivalent of a horror anthology and the quality matches that. The series mostly ranges from okay to bad. I wouldn't even call the best episodes must-see TV. The show suffers from two primary weaknesses: 1) The length. Each episode is approximately an hour and a half when they really should be an hour or just a half. A lot of the titles have concepts that don't justify the run-time. Things get stretched out and kind of dull. 2) Not enough actual horror. The majority of these are character pieces or focus on social subjects. Not that there aren't any good horror films out there that focus on a character's psychology or looking at a topical issue, but a lot of the writers/directors are far more interested in these subjects than actual scares. A lot of the villains are human so don't expect to encounter a lot of monsters if that's your thing. The show can also often feel a bit claustrophobic due to either limited settings or lack of extras. To it's credit, the casting is pretty good all around including some recognizable TV faces. I can't recommend this. Getting through all of this was a bit of a chore for me. The only reason I stayed through the entire season was because the weaker ones didn't hit until a few episodes in and I felt I had put enough time in that I should keep going. Unless there's word of a sudden increase in quality, I won't be returning for the confirmed season 2. I just can't go through that again.
