A group of college kids on a St. Paddy’s Day bar crawl get caught in the middle of a Body Snatchers-style alien invasion in the new trailer for Into the Dark: Crawlers, the latest installment in the Hulu anthology series.
Described as a monthly horror event series, each “episode” of Into the Dark is actually a feature-length horror movie is inspired by a holiday taking place that month. The series is produced by Blumhouse, the horror-thriller hit machine responsible for Jordan Peele’s Get Out, Happy Death Day, Insidious, The Purge, and others.
This new trailer shows the series’ next offering, which is more of a comedic sci-fi thriller reminiscent of Edgar Wright’s The World’s End, which was also about a gang of bar crawlers gradually being replaced by alien robots. Interestingly, Crawlers is the first episode of Into the Dark to tackle St. Patrick’s Day, with the series having already double-dipped on major holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, and the obvious but still fun Halloween. (The series first episode, the excellent comedic horror-thriller The Body, took place on Halloween.)
Starring Jude Demorest (Star), Pepi Sonuga (9-1-1), Giorgia Whigham (The Punisher), Olivia Liang (Legacies), and Cameron Fuller (The Last Ship), Into the Dark: Crawlers premieres on Hulu March 6. Check out the trailer below and decide whether or not you’d let a bunch of body-switching aliens ruin your St. Paddy’s Day bar hop. (I probably would. It’s just not worth it, man.)
