                            Into the Dark: They Come Knocking': New trailer, release date, plot, cast, and everything else you need to know about the Father's Day horror

Hulu's ongoing anthology horror Into the Dark's satirical spin on significant festivals from each month is what has helped elevate it to one of the supreme shows in its genre.

Following suit, the June installment of the show will see a horrifying take on Father's Day in the form of 'They Come Knocking', starring 'Lethal Weapon' star Clayne Crawford.

The element of horror this time will not be mothers obsessed with their psychopathic sons, or children's toys possessing random individuals.

The show goes back to the roots of horror and brings in the serious kind of supernatural as a father tries to protect his daughters in this dark take on Father's Day.

Release date

The ninth installment of 'Into the Dark' titled 'They Come Knocking' releases on June 7. 

Plot

Following its signature style, this dark spin on the June festival will focus around a father — who also happens to be a recent widower — taking his two daughters on a road trip. Things take a nasty turn as the father finds his family in the middle of terrifying supernatural creatures that turn what was supposed to be a fun time out for the family into nothing short of a traumatizing nightmare.

Creator

Horror maestro Jason Blum's production company, which has churned out one creepy, terrifying banger after the other, like 'The Purge' and the 'Paranormal Activity' franchise, is the mastermind behind this Hulu horror anthology. The ninth episode will be directed by Adam Mason, based on a script from Shane Van Dyke and Carey Van Dyke.

Cast

After a two season-long stint on 'Lethal Weapon' as the 'mad cop' Martin Riggs, Crawford was suddenly replaced in the third season after what is believed to have been a conflict between him and his co-lead on the show Damon Wayans. This is the first time since that Crawford will be venturing into television roles. Hulu will already have a strong fanbase for the upcoming episode of 'Into the Dark' because of how vocal Crawford's fans have been when it comes to supporting the actor after the conflict surrounding 'Lethal Weapon' broke out.

Best known as the baby sister of '13 Reasons Why's lead Katherine Langford, the young actress recently starred in the very controversial film adaptation of the Harry Styles-fanfic 'After' that came out in 2019. Having starred in other films like 'Wish Upon' (2017) and 'Wolf Creek' (2016), Langford had also released a song when she was in elementary school back in the year 2007. Langford will be playing the role of Crawford's elder daughter.

Robyn Lively

The American actress, who is Blake Lively's half-sister, is known for her iconic roles in films including 'Teen Witch.' Her other popular roles include shows like 'Doogie Howser', 'M.D.', 'Twin Peaks', 'Savannah', and 'Saving Grace.'

Trailer

Hulu just released the new trailer for the Father's Day horror and even though Crawford slips into the warm shoes of the newly widowed father, there's an eerie vibe to almost everything that prepares the viewer for whoever's about to come knocking. Langford as the elder daughter brings the stereotypical teen rebel on the screen effortlessly too. But it is the younger daughter, played by Lia McHugh, that you should watch out for because her first words in the trailer is what helps the essence of something potentially sinister kick in. Most of the action takes place in a trailer that the family is camping in, and the element of horror are a bunch of little kids in hooded outfits who keep knocking and requesting "Please let us come in." How fun!
