Halloween is a-coming – well, ok it’s a month off but us horror fans like to get excited way in advance. So what could be more exciting than a very early first look at a new 12-part horror anthology series?
Into The Dark is a new original series from Blumhouse Productions, the company behind Get Out, Insidious, Paranormal Activity, Sinister and many more. A new event series, it’s made up of 12 standalone super-sized, feature-length episodes, with a new instalment released on the first Friday of every month throughout the year on Hulu in the US (it’s coming to the UK further down the line). Each episode is inspired by a holiday from the month of its release, with Blumhouse working with a range of different filmmakers, creators and actors to bring this unique, first-of-its-kind series to life.
Den of Geek, with the marvellous FrightFest, are hosting a very special, very early screening of the first episode. Set around Halloween, ep 1 is called The Body. Here’s the blurb…
Ep. 1: The Body I Premiere: October 5, 2018 I Holiday: Halloween
Written By: Paul Fischer and Paul Davis; Directed By: Paul Davis
Cast: Tom Bateman (Murder on the Orient Express), Rebecca Rittenhouse (The Mindy Project), David Hull (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Ray Santiago (Ash vs Evil Dead)
A sophisticated hitman with a cynical view on modern society finds his work made more difficult when he has to transport a body on Halloween night, but everyone is enamored by what they think is his killer costume.
The screening will take place on Tuesday 25th September in central London. Doors open from 6.15 and the screening will start at 6.30. The closest tube stations are Piccadilly and Leicester Square.
