Hulu and Blumhouse Television have set a female coming-of-age story titled “Pure” as the September installment for their horror anthology “Into the Dark,” TheWrap has learned exclusively.
Here’s the official description for the movie: In this female coming-of-age horror story, several teen girls perform a secret ritual at a purity retreat and, when one of them begins to see a supernatural entity, the terrifying question emerges, what is more dangerous: the demon they’ve unleashed, or the pressure to conform to their fathers’ expectations.
