The anthology form – one-shot episodes, or even one-shot seasons – seems to agree with the horror genre, as we've seen in many recent horror shows, such as American Horror Story and The Haunting of Hill House.

Into the Dark is unique, as each episode is released around the time a particular holiday or other festive day is about to take place.

There have been episodes for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, as well as Mother's and Father's Day. Like its 2019 and 2020 predecessors Down and MyValentine respectively, Tentacles is themed around Valentine's day.

Into the Dark: Tentacles Trailer

The recently released trailer of Into the Dark: Tentacles, expertly gives us an idea of the plot and the conflict without spoiling anything. We meet a young couple, Tara and Sam that becomes too intimate too fast, getting engaged before coming to truly know each other. Not long after, Sam comes down with a mysterious illness, caused by something in his environment – but what?

Tara is seen with a shovel, burying something, while the poster and the title itself, suggest she's more than meets the eye. What exactly is she? The character herself claims not to know in the trailer, so we can only hope that the lethal love story will eventually give us the answer.

For an episode titled Tentacles, the trailer doesn't focus on those much. The poster suggests that the titular tentacles have something to do with Tara's mysterious nature, bordering towards the Lovecraftian weird. But is the answer so simple or is something even stranger going on? We can't wait to find out.
