Into the Dark is the latest entry into the growing trend of anthologies series. It’s a horror series coming from the fiendish mind of Jason Blum whose production company, Blumhouse, has produced several of the last decades most popular horror films such as Get Out, Happy Death Day,The Purge, Insidious, Paranormal Activity, and the much-anticipated, upcoming sequel Halloween. And those titles merely scratch the surface. Blumhouse has been a top name in horror for some time now and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere any time soon. Blumhouse Productions has also produced several television series like the short-lived but popular Eye Candy for MTV, the recent Sharp Objects, Indian-import and Netflix Original – Ghoul, The Purge limited series, and now this one.
