Pooka, released in December of 2018, is one of the most popular episodes of Blumhouse/Hulu’s Into the Dark horror movie anthology series and, next month, Pooka Lives when a sequel drops on April 3rd. Will we learn the origins of this demonic entity? Give the trailer embedded at the top of the article a spin for a hint at what’s to come!
In Pooka Lives, a group of thirty-something friends from high-school create their own Creepypasta about Pooka for laughs, but are shocked when it becomes so viral on the Internet that it actually manifests more murderous versions of the creature.
Pooka Lives is directed by Alejandro Brugués from a screenplay penned by Ryan Copple; the film stars Felicia Day, Wil Wheaton, Malcolm Barrett, Rachel Bloom, Jonah Ray, Lyndie Greenwood, and Gavin Stenhouse.
In partnership with Blumhouse Television, Into the Dark is a monthly horror event series from prolific, award-winning producer, Jason Blum’s independent TV studio. Each feature-length installment is inspired by a holiday and features Blumhouse’s signature genre/thriller spin on the story.
