August celebrates School Spirit Day and as a slasher fan, I was looking forward to director Mike Gans pom-pom induced whodunnit. The story was penned by writers Patrick Casey and Josh Miller who are part of the team bringing 2020’s Sonic the Hedgehog. But what channel is Hulu even on? And how many episodes can you watch? Read on to find out and then follow on for the review of this episode.

Opening scenes for this episode begin in a school. Two teens are installing a camera on the roof of the locker room. A great introduction to a slasher movie if you ask me. When both are murdered by an unseen figure, we’re then transported to a different day and time somewhere in the not too distant following days.
The trailer for this month’s Into the Dark story tells of how the legend of the spirit; a teacher who had a heart attack as the result of a prank. Now she haunts the hallways looking to take revenge on bad kids. There is more tension in the preview as the building creaks and moans than in the whole of the rest of its scenes.
Between talk of the urban legend that roams the hallways and kills of hapless students and a modern-day Breakfast Club detention group, I found most of the characters unbearably unlikeable. Due to the casting choice of one main star and the rest almost unknowns, I immediately guessed who the culprit behind the slow murder of this small group; one-by-one was.
The murders themselves are something I took issue with the most and blamed for the lack of tension. The school spirit is responsible for being stealthy in his quest for blood. From time to time we see the admiral’s silhouette in the background, a trick I usually enjoy when done well.
The masked killer gag is easily the most common for slasher fare. An elaborate kill is definitely on the slasher fans checklist. Tension, therefore, is a must, in the absence of this. For some unknown reason its as though someone stuffed cotton wool into the sound mic of the boom. Suddenly everything goes quiet as a lone figure drops down through the roof to take out the unassuming victim who only notices and looks up; right as the knife comes down. One dead body remains and the spooky school spirit blends back into the group. Did I mention there are only five?
Aside from the unconvincing games of hide-and-seek, lackluster narrative and predictability in working out who the killer is, the ending was this episode’s biggest strength. It’s a shame the theme of the finale wasn’t expanded to cover up the rest of the run times’ shortfalls.
