Hulu & Blumhouse present a monthly horror anthology “Into the Dark.” I’m here to talk about episode 3: Pooka!
It’s so difficult for a movie to have the ability to make you feel like you’re slowly going crazy as it goes on, only to have it all finally come together at the end. That’s Pooka.
“A struggling actor gets a holiday season job as a Christmas character in a plush suit to promote the hottest toy of the year, Pooka; he slowly develops two personalities -- one when he's in the suit and one that's outside it.”
The story structure is what makes this so impactful. You feel drained when it’s over, when it finally all comes together. Yet you’re left wanting more context, wanting answers that you have to figure out for yourself.
It’s a spooky, chilling, suspenseful thrill that holds your attention. Definitely added to my holiday list.
