A 666-Character Review Of Hulu’s ‘Into The Dark: Down’

The latest installment of Hulu’s Into the Dark Series, entitled Down, is no-frills survival horror. Most of the film takes place in an elevator, where Jennifer (Natalie Martinez, Death Race) and Guy (Matt Lauria, Friday Night Lights) are stuck throughout Valentine’s Day weekend. There are twists abound, though not at all shocking and often predictable, and it plays out as simple, dumb fun (don’t go into this expecting Aronofsky or Lynch and you’ll be just fine). The small cast delivers average-to-good performances, landing this as one of the better episodes in the collection. The sadistic gore is squeam-worthy, but nothing your anti-V-Day heart can’t handle.
