'Into the Dark: My Valentine': Release date, plot, cast, trailer, and all you need to know about this horror flick
Just add some blood and sinister intent into the plot of the 2003 hit 'The Lizzie McGuire Movie', and bam, you've got the V-Day nightmare of the month
Hulu and Blumhouse's joint venture of the satirical holiday revolving anthology horror 'Into the Dark' is gearing for a feature-length episode titled 'My Valentine'. It's their second attempt at a Valentine's Day nightmare while celebrating the February holiday. While it might be nothing like the trapped-in-an-elevator type gory thriller as shown in Season 1's 'Down', it gets pretty close to a certain 'Lizzie McGuire Movie' we are all too familiar with.
Just add some blood and sinister intent into the plot of the 2003 Hilary Duff starrer and bam - you've got the V-Day nightmare of the month. Here's all you need to know about the installment signifying February's biggest holiday - Valentine's Day.
'My Valentine' will debut on Hulu on February 7, 2020.
According to the official synopsis of the episode, the story kicks off when "A pop singer's songs and artistic identity get stolen by her ex-boyfriend/ manager and shamelessly pasted onto his new girlfriend/protégé. Locked together in a small concert venue after hours, the three of them confront the emotional abuses of the past…until things turn violent.” Sound similar? Probably because that's exactly what Paolo tried to do with Lizzie, by staging her as her doppelganger - popular Italian pop star Isabella, to drown the latter's career in 'The Lizzie McGuire Movie'. Of course, things don't get violent between the lookalike ladies and the evil Paolo, with the two of them joining forces to bust him during a live concert. But with Blumhouse's promising deliveries in the genre, the elements of horror in 'My Valentine' will only make things much better!
Coming from the production house that gave us iconic realistic horrors like 'The Purge' and the supernatural refreshers like 'The Paranormal Activity' franchises, My Valentine's horror quotient will be amped up owing to its executive producers - Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill - who were behind the 2012 movie 'Sinister'. Maggie Levin serves as both the writer and director for the episode.
The episode will star Britt Baron from 'Glow' as the titular Valentine, the scorned ex out for revenge. Anna Lore from 'Doom Patrol' plays Trezzure, the protege being groomed by Royal, played by Benedict Samuel from 'Gotham'. Anna Akana from 'Let It Snow' joins the cast as Julie.
The official trailer of the episode is a mix of blood, neon lights, and aggression, as we meander through the dark side of pop culture's glitz and glamour. There's plenty of venom being spat out as the two ladies join forces to ruin the man who has victimized them both.
Enjoy it here!
