With its clever blend of comedic skills and horrific thrills, "The Body" initially intrigues, but its thin plotting and stock characters fail to sufficiently fill the feature length run-time.
This one is a tonal mess, but there's reason to believe that Blum and his team could find a gem in here somewhere. They've got 11 more months to dig.
...a plot stretched too thin over 90 minutes and stock horror characters whose vapidity defies belief.
The biggest problem with "The Body" is that it feels like a riff. Part of that is due to the simple concept, and a larger part is due to the writing.
The Body has a lot going on, which is one of the many reasons it's the right way to kick off Hulu's entire year of scares.
This episode was genuinely hilarious! A great script with so much dark comedy and actually disturbing material.
"The Body" is a fun romp with enough self-aware humor, you'll forget you're terrified.
Blumhouse knows to make a lot of a little, and the grim city locations and well-written interactions between cast members make "The Body" fun to watch.
"The Body" boasts a strong story, but the episode also succeeds on a technical level.
It feels maybe 10 minutes too long. But the profligate murders are pleasingly imaginative, the plot twists unpredictable enough to stay interesting.
The Body is an undeniably slight diversion, but fun and forgettable movies have their place.
Into the Dark's The Body is, for the most part, a big swing that misses, it fails in a way that speaks to Blumhouse's core values.
Unfortunately, the script from Paul Davis - also the director - and Paul Fischer quickly ditches that framework for a good ol' chase and stab.
