This week, the Grue-Crew review a pair of films that take “darkness” into two different but similar genre directions. The first film this week, INTO THE DARK: POOKA LIVES! from director Alejandro Brugués, follows a Pooka, a viral sensation that leads to horrific results. The second film, WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS from director Marc Meyers, follows two sets of friends who suspect the others may be cult killers in disguise.

And Crystal Cleveland, the Livin6Dead6irl from Decades of Horror: 1980s share their thoughts about this week’s awesome collection of streaming horror films.
