Next month's new installment of Hulu's Into the Dark will take on the American Dream and the episode's official trailer offers viewers their first preview of what's in store. In case you haven't been keeping up, each month the Hulu horror anthology brings a new episode themed around a holiday or event from that month, making for twelve episodes in total. July's episode is titled Culture Shock.

The episode 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.

Into the Dark: Culture Shock stars 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 c

To recap what next month will offer, August will bring us School Spirit, which sounds like a horror version of The Breakfast Club. In the episode, six social outcasts, played by Corey Fogelmanis (Ma), Annie Q. (The Leftovers), Jessi Case (Mother’s Day), Julian Works (9-1-1), Philip Labes (The OA), and Hugo Armstrong (Fear the Walking Dead), are stuck in weekend detention and then confronted by the school’s legendary hauntings. The episode will premiere on August 2nd on Hulu.

Hulu’s Into the Dark continues with Culture Shock arriving on July 4th, 2019. The first nine 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.
