Hulu launches exclusive feature

'In the Darkness' is released by Mattoid Ent.

In a sign of the digital times, Hulu.com yesterday launched the first feature-length narrative film to premiere exclusively on its site.

“In The Darkness” is released by Mattoid Ent., which focuses on creating first-run content for online platforms.
