Selina’s Point of View:
Into the Dark has been very inconsistent for me, but that’s to be expected with an anthology series that utilizes different creative teams. No two stories are going to look, or feel, the same. It means that hating one episode doesn’t mean you won’t love the next.
That’s what I’m seeing here.
I wasn’t overly fond of our last look Into the Dark. This one, however, was phenomenal.
I loved A Nasty Piece of Work. The plot was intriguing from the beginning.

The story had a chance to turn into something very predictable. In fact, I thought it would wind up being a straight-forward revenge-type plot. It morphed, within the first 10 minutes, into something that felt completely new and fresh.
It had some really dark, fucked-up, moments mixed in – but a lot of it comes to a head in a way that makes it feel less awkward.
I did expect a couple of the twists, but not nearly all of them.
In a month where rom-coms reign supreme, I’m thrilled that I got to see a really well-made horror-comedy in the mix.
