At the very beginning of the year, we heard word that a new anthology horror series was on the way to Hulu from the folks over at Blumhouse, who specialize in the horrific and the macabre. However, since that initial announcement, there have been virtually no details other than it being a monthly anthology series that will consist of 12 episodes will air on the first Friday of every month.
Now, the network has announced that this new series — which will be a hybrid of the anthological and serialized approach to storytelling — is called Into the Dark. Each episode that airs will be greatly inspired by a holiday that takes place in the month that it airs, so I can imagine that next May, we could be getting either a Mother’s Day-themed show or a Memorial Day-themed one. Personally, I think this is a great approach, and will really add to the event-like nature of each episode.
The first episode will premiere on October 5 of this year and will be called “The Body.” Here’s how the outlet describes the episode:
“Set in the selfie culture of Los Angeles on Halloween night, ‘The Body’ follows a sophisticated, overconfident hitman who always carries out his work in style. He decides to take things even further one day by transporting his latest victim in plain sight, correctly assuming that self-absorbed LA partiers will simply be enamored with his elaborate ‘costume.’ Eventually, as his window of opportunity to dispose of the body begins to close, Wilkes’ true colors reveal themselves to some groupies that have latched on to him. It becomes a battle of will and wits.”
The second installment will air on November 2, and is called “Flesh & Blood.”
“A doting father [is] trying to help his daughter, Kimberly, a teenager suffering from agoraphobia, who has not left the house since her mother’s still-unsolved murder. Set on the eve of Thanksgiving a year after her mother’s death, Kimberly begins to suspect that she is in danger in the home, but she can’t leave and doesn’t know who she can trust.”
