One of the major highlights of Hulu’s recent “Into the Dark” episode POOKA! was, obviously, POOKA. From its cute design, general fuzziness, and disarming demeanor, it was difficult for us not to fall in love with it. However, POOKA is unpredictable and, when its naughty side is unleashed, you best prepare yourself for all the shenanigans because they will definitely ensue. We here at Nightmarish Conjurings had POOKA’s naughty side bestow its blessings upon us with an exclusive interview, where we were able to ask whether or not POOKA thinks it is cute, what draws POOKA to bestow things, and whether or not he will willingly take me as a sacrificial blessing to its greatness.
Nightmarish Conjurings: When selecting people, animals, or even vegetables to possess, what immediately catches your attention?
Nightmarish Conjurings: We’ve seen you give side eye when referred to as cute. It seems that you don’t agree with that description. How do you see yourself, Pooka?
Pooka: first of all, i am cute. second of all, i personally see myself as the baddest baddie in the game. I don’t normally call people out…well actually i do but who the fuck cares. gritty if you’re reading i got my big ass eyes on u.
Nightmarish Conjurings: When embracing your naughty side, what are your favorite activities to do?
