Cast & Crew
This is one of the best chapters of Into the Dark because it actually has something to say about the holiday it uses.
Murky in its vision, lazy in its character development, uninspired in its violent spectacle, and stodgy in its pacing.
Where Pilgrim does work is as a nasty, sloppy slice of occasionally gory fun, chock-full of purposefully silly chills and ridiculous shocks.
It's just a shame that the filmmakers kept hinting at having a really great payoff to all of the build up, and then couldn't deliver.
Thankfully the film's third act resolves all of its problems in fairly entertaining fashion. It's a wild, nutty romp from that point forward, and while it still feels nonsensical - especially for a film that claims to be inspired by a true story.
A great premise wasted on a poor execution. [Full review in Spanish].
The evil people in this piece are equal-opportunity villains: they treat everyone horribly, regardless of skin color.
Into The Dark finally delivered an incredible Thanksgiving horror story that sticks to the tradition of the First Thanksgiving and boasts a relentless, brutal ending.
Overall Pilgrim is fun, it's gory, and it will fill you with gratitude for the partnership between Blumhouse and Hulu. Perfect for the Thanksgiving theme.
Pilgrim is among the best Into the Dark entries because it's willing to stir some s***, break some eggs and let the chips fall where they may.
Pilgrim is an evil Thanksgiving tale with all the death-soaked trimmings.
