Hulu and Blumhouse have locked brains once again to offer us a St. Patrick's day nightmare with a subtle satirical twist in the form of the upcoming 'Into the Dark' installment.

Following its signature trait of monthly feature-length horror films pegged on the festival that signifies the month, the anthology series is about to present its latest installment called 'Crawlers' which will see a group of friends encounter a bunch of body-switching aliens after the usual drunken craze of St Patrick's Day. Here's all you need to know about it.

Release date: 

'Into the Dark: Crawlers' will premiere on Friday, March 6, only on Hulu.

According to the official synopsis provided by the streaming network, “‘Crawlers’ is set on Saint Patrick’s Day — a night of wild parties and drunken revelry — and follows three unlikely friends who band together to save a college town from a vicious horde of body-switching aliens.”

This is a stark contrast from last year's March installment of 'Into the Dark', titled 'Treehouse', which was pegged on the phenomenal significance of the Me Too movement. The episode saw Jimmi Simpson as celebrity chef Peter Rake, who tries to escape a recent wave of negative tabloid exposure by moving away to his family's vacation estate in the woods, but the ghosts of his past are everywhere and debts will be settled.

Cast:

Jude Demorest of 'Star', Pepi Sonuga from '9-1-1', Giorgia Whigham from 'The Punisher', Legacies' Olivia Liang and The Last Ship's Cameron Fuller star in this feature-length episode.
