The four girls who get together all have something they’re ashamed of or want to keep hidden.  Alexis (Waterhouse) has a big scar on the side of her face.  Danielle (Chaikin) is famous for being a nice girl, but underneath she’s just a bully.  Chloe (Bergland) is fat and doesn’t think much of herself.  And Kayla (Howell-Baptiste) is a lesbian who’s a little bit ashamed of that fact.  But they’ve all been friends for a long time, so they get together for New Year’s Eve.

But there’s a twist of course.  And then, there’s another twist.  I can’t tell you about either of them or it will ruin the entire movie and I don’t want to ruin this one.  Just know that this is a little tale about bullying and how cruel girls can be to each other.  Me and DJ are starting to think that none of these Hulu “Into the Dark” movies are going to be straight up horror.  Because again, this one isn’t.

There was no good innovation.  There was absolutely no Freddy Claws.  And no one was in the least bit likable when it came down to it.  The only thing really nice about the movie was the acting.  We believed that they were all cray.  It seems the entire moral of the story is just how crazy girls can be toward one another.  And you can just look at the world to know that, you don’t have to watch this movie.  So, don’t.

My score: 39.  DJ’s score: 21.
