EXCLUSIVE: Mike Gan Discusses Into the Dark: ‘School Spirit’

Into the Dark School Spirit

Hulu has been showing a more dedicated focus on the horror genre and their ‘Into the Dark’ series, which debuted back in October 2018, is a perfect example of that.

One particular installment in the ‘Into the Dark’ series, ‘School Spirit’, is being referred to as “The Breakfast Club meets Blumhouse” and director Mike Gan discusses his approach behind the camera for the buzzworthy episode.

“As a teenager, I loved the 90s slasher films like “Scream” and “I Know What You Did Last Summer” Gan told me.

“I wanted that balance of humor and horror those movies had, but still create characters that addressed meaningful things like parental pressure and identity.”

Gan has always loved horror, so working on ‘Into the Dark’ was a natural fit for the up and coming director.

“Some of my all time favorites are Rosemary’s Baby, The Shining, The Brood, and more recently, the South Korean film “The Wailing” and “Hereditary” Gan said.

“I think the social allegory horror films Blumhouse has been making really elevate the genre.

Gan also plans to continue to work on horror as his career progresses.

“Definitely” Gan said when asked if we can expect more horror from him in the future.

“I’m a big fan of elevated genre films. I think horror is a great way to tell allegorical stories, but still have it be fun and entertaining.”

Gan has another film, his directorial debut, ‘Burn’ which is set to arrive soon.

“The biggest challenge was developing more characters throughout the story, but with less dialogue and dramatic moments” Gan said of the difference between ‘Burn’ and ‘School Spirit’.

“It was fun to show who each kid was by how they dealt with the ‘School Spirit’.
