'Into the Dark' episode 2: Hulu releases new trailer for Thanksgiving-themed episode 'Flesh and Blood'
The anthology series from Blumhouse Productions works on the formula of new 90-minute episodes releasing every month, revolving around a seasonal holiday.
Halloween might be over on the midnight of October 31, but for horror fans, Hulu has bonus gifts for all horror fans. The network's latest anthology horror series, 'Into the Dark' has been earning rave reviews ever since its release earlier this month. Debuting with the Halloween themed episode titled, 'The Body,' Into the Dark is gearing up for its second episode, ahead of its November 2 release. And the trailer for the episode, titled 'Flesh and Blood' is here!
The anthology series from Blumhouse Productions works on the formula of new 90-minute episodes releasing every month, revolving around a seasonal holiday. October's episode, The Body, was based on Halloween and focused on a meticulous assassin who runs on unique murder skills and a forte for social satire. The whole episode's subtle theme was a satire based around the holiday, depicting just how focused on technology and basic vapid fun people are, which makes them overlook something significantly sinister happening around them.
While the episode is still streaming on Hulu and every bit worth the binge watch ahead of some spooky Halloween fun, the upcoming episode switches gears from the festival of the dead to one of the most wholesome ones, aka Thanksgiving. The first images of Flesh and Blood offered by the trailer released on Wednesday are brimming with an all-around creepy, eerie vibe, which you can check out here:
The official synopsis on the show's Wikipedia page, describes the episode as: "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 whom she can trust." If you look closely into the first looks revealed, you can see a warm, frame-worthy Thanksgiving dinner in progress, with Kimberly (Diana Silvers) sitting down with her mom (Meredith Salenger) and her dad, Henry (Dermot Mulroney).
But while the image gives off warm and fuzzy Thanksgiving family vibes, it's also severely idyllic - owing to the underlying secret behind it that is all a flashback. Following her mother's death, Kimberly is still paranoid, as the killer is still at large, and this scene brings that out brilliantly. On the other hand, Kimberly's therapist (Tembi Locke) also warns her that shutting herself within the four walls of her home could eventually lead to her house turning into her prison, but she's still so shaken by her mother's death that she doesn't know how else to go about it.
