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.

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.

Oct 9, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

    "I'm Just Fucking With You" takes viewers' morbid fascination with serial killers to the trashiest extreme possible. It tries to convince us that we are not as morally fixed and set in our values as we'd like to believe. The film normalizes a violent culture, in a way that you can't just brush away with a cursory swat of the hand, like a free cocktail from a dodgy night manager. (Word to the wise: this was our hero's first mistake.) Director Adam Mason doesn't want to settle for the familiar, crowd-pleasing horror tropes that Hollywood usually serves up. In this misanthropic psychological thriller, he points out the thoroughly rotten core of human nature. He highlights the pointlessness of making any attempt to do the right thing during a fight-or-flight situation. The story follows Larry Adams, on his way to his ex-girlfriend Cindy's wedding, whom he bitterly resents. From the start, we're shown how cowardly and vindictive he is on the inside. From his anonymous Twitter profile, he tweets out degrading, malicious insults to Cindy. He stays overnight in a rundown motel, where the night manager named Chester plays a series of cruel practical jokes on him and his sister Rachel (who takes a neighboring room). The thrust of the film rests on a strained, toxic friendship formed between Larry and Chester. Though Larry is initially turned off by Chester's eccentricities, he begrudgingly warms up to him upon Rachel's insistence. In stark contrast to this film, mainstream slashers are keen to remind viewers that, however compulsively watchable he is, the psychopath's entire behavior is perverse, to put it lightly. They tend to overlook a key issue, though. In practice, the average person is a lot more responsive to the magnetism possessed by a psychopath, and therefore, potentially less heroic than he or she would like to believe.

    This was one of the best series I have ever seen!! It kept me enthralled to the very last episode. Now I'm only upset that I have to wait until August for the next episode 😭. I hope this series goes on forever, seriously clever and creepy. Each episode is haunting in a way that you are thinking about it for hours after! Blumhouse rocks!!!!

    For Culture Shock: Disappointing Black Mirror-like film. The story could have had a stronger plot twist but the director chose a bitter and weak ending. Still, it is okay to watch for those who enjoy Campy psychological thrillers.

    Into The Dark is actually a VERY good "series" of 90 min movies. I have read some very curious negative reviews (some idiotic reviewer claims it's actually "worse than cancer". So childish. I grew up in the 80's and 90's and have been a huge Horror fan all my life. These installments are VERY satisfying. You definitely won't regret watching!

    Mostly pretty good! Some better than others. Each episode is a holiday themed horror, which is awesome. Worth watching if you are a horror anthology fan!

    Love the horror/macabre...and watching a couple of these episodes, I was fine. Then I stated seeing the "me too/mansplaning/wage gap"...I'm not against issues like these, but not with my entertainment. The episodes themselves aren't bad if you don't care about people preaching to you...otherwise, avoid this! And I hate saying that, I want Hulu to succeed..but keep doing this and I'm gone

    What it lacks in genuine scares, makes up with thrill, great cast and compelling storytelling about current issues.

    Excellent late night show, if you like room 104 or black mirror, you will like this.

    Young Kimberly attempts to overcome her mom's mystery death to fix her agoraphobia. However, she begins to sense she is in harm's way as she lives with her dad. A character study of two emotionally or mentally disturbed souls . One the Father . Two the Daughter . This 1:33 minute episode is very well acted . The limited characters (Diana Silvers as Kimberly, and Dermot Mulroney as her father) are well casted, and comfortably take command, guiding the story along.. “Flesh & Blood” shows that maybe Into the Dark is worth sticking around a whole year for. “Flesh & Blood” is a more conventional thriller, but its deft execution doesn’t let it feel stale. “Flesh & Blood” takes its time setting up its characters and conflict, but once it gets going it doesn’t stop. Very good thriller.

    Shockingly bad. Like the horror version of a Lifetime movie.
