Plot: Kim, an agoraphobic teen who hasn’t left the house since her mother’s murder, comes to suspect that she may be in the most danger under her father’s watchful eye
Kim only talks to her father, her doctor – who makes house calls – and some online friends with similar agoraphobic issues. She’s not very likable at first though. She’s a bitch to her doctor and she won’t even help her father with renovations on the house even though she’s home, literally, all of the time. We just weren’t made to feel very sorry for her.
Then, she sees on the news that another girl has gone missing. Apparently, there have been a lot of missing girls in recent months. And this past missing girl just so happens to be wearing a necklace in her missing photo that Kim’s father has just given to her as a present. So, here comes the suspicion and the real plot of the movie. Did he or didn’t he do it? We won’t spoil the surprise, but we will say that it takes way too long to all come to a boil. They should have stretched the happy bits out or something. Made them a more likable family.
The acting was fantastic though. We believed everyone. The rest of it was pretty stupid though. It was unrealistic (especially the bit with the Propofol). The ending was weak. It was unoriginal and it was just no fun. We didn’t like it. We’re disappointed with Dermot for doing this movie and we’re disappointed with these first two Into the Dark Hulu movies in general. Here’s hoping the next one is better. C’mon Christmas!!
My score: 37. DJ’s score: 21.
