Down (Review)—House Of Tortured Souls

Down is the fifth episode in the Into the Dark series on Hulu, which was produced by Jason Blum and this episode was directed by Daniel Stamm and written by Kent Kubena. The film stars Natalie Martinez (Death Race, CSI:NY), Matt Lauria (Friday Night Lights), Arnie Pantoja (Resident Evil: Vendetta), Diane Sellers, and Christina Leone.

Down follows two office employees Jennifer (Natalie Martinez) and Guy (Matt Lauria) who finish up work on a Friday night only for both to enter the elevator which quickly becomes a Valentine’s Day from hell.

As you may have guessed it, the elevator becomes stuck which leads both incredibly good looking ‘single’ strangers to do nothing but get to know one another and chemistry builds up. Within the next few hours, the innocent flirting and conversing turns into a violent downward spiral and the ultimate survival game. You can quickly sense the obsession that Guy has for Jennifer and know that he planned the scheme early on… SPOILER ALERT: he ends up not being who he says he is. It’s a classic stalker type of thriller with the perfect combination of gore with a fierce strong woman in a lead role.

I highly suggest you watch this with whoever you feel like being trapped with on Valentine’s Day. It is has the perfect thriller/horror combo and will make you paranoid on how well you really know your coworkers and who you are on an elevator with.
