They Come Knocking (Into the Dark Review)

The ninth episode of the Into the Dark series titled They Come Knocking sums up Nathan’s not so typical Father’s Day.

Nathan (Clayne Crawford— The Perfect Host, 24, A Walk to Remember) takes his two daughters Claire (Josephine LangfordWolf Creek) and Maggie (Lia McHughThe Lodge, American Woman) on a road trip to the desert to spread the ashes of his late wife’s (and their mother’s) at their spot for some closure. 

Val (Robyn LivelyTwin Peaks, Chicago Hope, Teen Witch) was suffering with cancer which led Nathan to make a hard decision of taking her off life support. Claire has not forgiven her father for making that decision and you can see a lot of resentment and tension between the two during the movie. 

While starting their first night of camping, unwanted visitors show up. It was a pair of child-like figures at their trailer to be exact. With Nathan refusing to let them in, they begin to taunt the family threatening they will eventually have to leave the trailer at some point. 

The figures weren’t messing around when they destroyed the engine to their only way out from the desert. What becomes a challenge is that they start to see Val in these creatures. It becomes a battle for the family to fight off the illusions. But can they succeed is the question… especially with Maggie chasing after who she thinks is her mother. 

This episode set up the horror because not only do you feel for them for losing the main glue in their family, but you don’t want the creatures to touch them. 

Check out the trailer below, but I highly suggest to just jump right into the movie.
