Swing and a miss....
13 December 2018 | by mossow92See all my reviews

Hulu's 3rd film in its Into the Dark series takes on the Christmas season with some psychological horror dealing with the darkness that surrounds even the most usually bright and cheerful time of the year. Pooka really breaks no new ground, but rather splices together ideas and concepts from similar films of others into a holiday horror. While terrible by no means, the movie director seems to think they and their film are smarter than they actually are. The viewer can see where the story is going early, leaving no real "aha" moment as the final concluding revelations are made. Some may be left confused but the average watcher who has seen things similar will feel a sad and empty deja vu.
