One of the cooler under-the-radar horror events is Hulu’s “Into the Dark”, which produces a brand new feature film every single month for an entire year. Each episode is holiday-themed, with the first two tackling Halloween and Thanksgiving. Bloody Disgusting just learned that V/H/S family member Nacho Vigalondo, who helmed the incredible Colossal and Timecrimes, directed next month’s Christmas-themed “Into the Dark” episode, “Pooka”, which stars Nyasha Hatendi, Latarsha Rose, Jon Daly, Dale Dickey, Jonny Berryman, and Diane Sellers.
In the episode, a struggling actor gets a holiday season job as a Christmas character in a plush suit to promote the hottest toy of the year, “Pooka.” At first, it’s a fun and friendly distraction, but he slowly develops two personalities–one when he’s in the suit, and one that’s outside it–as Pooka slowly starts to take possession of him.
Watch for a trailer soon.
