Deck The Halls with Chills and Thrills with Hulu's Into The Dark, "Pooka!" 

A struggling actor gets a holiday season job as a Christmas character in a plush suit to promote the hottest toy of the year, "Pooka." At first it's a fun and friendly distraction, but he slowly develops two personalities--one when he's in the suit, and one that's outside it--as Pooka slowly starts to take possession of him. This unconventional monster movie is directed by Academy Award nominated filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo, the visionary behind the acclaimed 2016 Kaiju film COLOSSAL.
