Critic Reviews for Into The Dark Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (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.

Apr 12, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Nov 2, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Into The Dark: Season 1

    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.

    I was incredibly excited for this series, seeing I have loved everything that Blumhouse has done. I have watched 5 episodes and all it has been is disappointment. "Pure" had a ton of potential, but all it turned into was some "religious people want to control women" garbage. "Culture Shock" has the good ole "yay all illegal immigrants" tone. "Down", "I'm Just F*cking with You" and "All That We Destroy" just carry on with sad, poorly thought out, political messaging garbage. Save yourself some time and watch the first couple seasons of "Black Mirror", prior to it turning into the drivel that is "Into the Dark."

    This review is based on the segment I'm Just F*cking with You It's worth your time and considering its runtime it's not a very big investment either. This one of those movies that's an interesting watch one time through but I don't know if I'll find myself aching to watch it again, at least not any time soon. I'll give it points for creativity and sticking with the theme of April Fools' Day, as well as MacArthur's performance. I think overall it would have been better with an ending that was a little more gratifying. Then again, I could see where some audiences might like the way things ended so maybe that's just me. So, when do we get to see Uncle Sam start murdering some people? For this review, the juicy spoilers and more, visit TheCynicist.com

    i liked the first 2. but why does everything have to become political. on pure it actually states that all men just want to control women, and that we should all be killed or stopped.

    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.

    "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.
