Another chapter of Hulu’s Into the Dark is on the way and this time the anthology horror series has its sights set on Father’s Day. As the calendar pages turn, each month brings us a new episode themed around a holiday or event from that month and June is no exception. The episode, titled They Come Knocking, will make its streaming debut on June 7th. Give the trailer a watch above and read on for more details on the episode and series.
Into the Dark: They Come Knocking stars Clayne Crawford, who played the character of Martin Riggs in the first two seasons of Fox’s Lethal Weapon. Reportedly due to frequent clashing with fellow co-lead Damon Wayans, he was eventually replaced by Seann William Scott for Season 3. Into the Dark will be the actor’s first television role since exiting that series.
The episode will have Crawford playing the part of a recent widower who takes his two daughters on a road trip and eventually finds his family in the crosshairs of terrifying supernatural entities. The cast will also include Josephine Langsford, Robyn Lively, Lia McHugh, and Dwight Hicks. Based on the series’ typical release schedule, we can expect this episode to debut on June 7th, 2019.
July will bring us Culture Shock, which will follow a young Mexican woman who illegally crosses the border into the United States in search of the American dream, but instead finds more of a nightmare waiting for her. This is no doubt a topical story coming during a time of year where people may be inclined to reflect on all things America. Commentary or not, we are looking forward to seeing what kind of horror spin awaits us in this tale.
Into the Dark: Culture Shock will star Martha Higareda (Altered Carbon) and also features horror icon Barbara Crampton, who you will surely recognize from Re-Animator and other horror classics. The cast also includes Richard Cabral (Mayans M.C.), Shawn Ashmore (The Rookie), Felipe de Lara (The Lord of the Skies), and Creed Bratton (The Office). Gigi Saul Guerrero is directing and co-writing alongside Efren Hernandez and James Benson, who are credited with the story idea.
We exclusively revealed an upcoming episode titled School Spirit back in October, which should arrive by the end of the summer. That’s all we have for now, but this series will surely bring us plenty more holiday horror fun as the calendar pages turn throughout the year.
Hulu’s Into the Dark continues with They Come Knocking arriving on June 7th, 2019. The first eight feature-length episodes are currently streaming, so there’s no reason not to get caught up. Otherwise, stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for more coverage on this series in the coming months.
