Anthology series set in room 104 of a seemingly average American motel, telling each time a different story of the assorted guests who pass through, which can range from funny and fantastical to dramatic and horrifying.
A skeptical female clinical psychologist joins a priest-in-training and a blue-collar contractor as they investigate supposed miracles, demonic possession, and other extraordinary occurrences to see if there's a scientific explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work.
HULU's anthologic series is made by short horror movies. Some of them are definetely interesting, while others are very boring and pretty much predictable. There are 12 episodes, usually released close to holiday periods like Christmas or Thanksgiving Day, and that obviously are somewhat related to these festivities.
The pilot was just okay, nohing that hooked me so much. The network should have begin with something more interesting like the "Pooka!" episode that, at least for me, was one of the best episode, with an unexpected ending. Most of them contains many clichées and the real good ones are a few. Some topics are interesting but too much present, like for example the gender discrimination and the physical and mental abuse.
Being an anthologic serie, you don't have to watch the complete season (I did it because I was watching it, while it was aired), so I will simply tell which are for me the best episodes: "Flesh and Blood", "Pooka!"
The acting was almost always good and I was happy to see in the cast actors like Carly Chaikin (Mr. Robot), or Jimmi Simpson. I was also glad to discover new actors like Hayes MacArthur and Martha Higareda.
Into The Dark is a good product and considering the whole package, I have decided to give 7 stars out of 10. I am a little bit sorry that was not so popular and I really hope that HULU will eventually renew the serie with new stories. If you are an horror fan, I suggest to give it a shot.
