If, like me, you're always on the lookout for new projects from Nick Antosca after watching the Channel Zero series, then you'll be pleased to know that this February's installment of Blumhouse and Hulu's horror anthology series Into the Dark, titled Tentacles, is based on a story by Antosca and Alexandra Pechman, who also worked as a writer on Channel Zero.
Directed by Clara Aranovich (Into the Dark: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Dying) from a teleplay by Pechman, Tentacles stars Dana Drori (Freaky), Casey Deidrick (In the Dark), Evan Williams (Versailles), and Kasey Elise (North Hollywood).
Described as a "psychosexual horror-thriller," Tentacles will premiere on Hulu beginning Friday, February 12th, just in time for Valentine's Day weekend!
"TENTACLES is a psychosexual horror-thriller about a young Los Angeles couple Tara (Dana Drori) and Sam (Casey Deidrick) who fall head over heels into a new romance, entwining their lives — until their intimacy transforms into something terrifying.
Based on a story by Alexandra Pechman & Nick Antosca (The Act, Antlers) the episode takes inspiration from the rushes of early intimacy and uncertain power dynamics at play, and the dangers of losing yourself.
