Detailed Analysis and Review

In recent times Hollywood horror movies have changed and now social issues are included in the plots of horror flicks. Horror movies have a social message to give and this is why these movies are well appreciated by the viewers. Treehouse has tried to adapt to the new trend but has failed badly. The story of the series is plain and bland and there are no twists and turns in the show. In many stories, witches are not only a symbol of threat or harm. There are some witches who do well to humans and change their life. The series doesn’t have much to offer and the performances of the actors are also average.

Final Thoughts

Treehouse is a disappointment. It is one of the most boring episodes of Into The Dark. The other episodes are genuinely scary but Treehouse lacks that.  If you are planning to watch Into the dark then you can easily skip this episode because it doesn’t have much to offer.
