Hulu has released the first trailer for Into the Dark, its horror anthology series with Blumhouse Productions (Get Out, Happy Death Day, The Purge) tackling one holiday-themed horror story a month. It’s like Hallmark, except instead of mistaken identities and happily-ever-afters over Halloween/Valentine’s Day/Mother’s Day, it’s slashers and Final Girls. They wisely chose Halloween for the first installment: The Body follows a professional hitman who finds the perfect cover at a Halloween party.
The official synopsis, from Hulu:
On Halloween, a sophisticated hitman with a cynical view on modern society finds his work made more difficult when he has to transport a body in one night, but everyone is enamored by what they think is his killer costume.
Barry it ain’t, but The Body does seem to be leaning toward tongue-in-cheek riffs on horror tropes and dramatic irony… and who knows, maybe the hitman isn’t ...
