Jason Blum’s house of horrors, aka Blumhouse Productions, is preparing to release a slate of new original content exclusively to Amazon. Needless to say this is the greatest treat horror hounds might expect in time for Halloween. The series of eight films, helpfully referred to as “The Blumhouse” by Amazon’s press statement, offers a variety of new voices to audiences eager for fresh blood in their thrills.
The first four films in the series will premiere on Amazon beginning on Oct. 6, the other four movies will debut on the streaming service sometime in 2021.
“We are excited to launch ‘Welcome to the Blumhouse’ with the exhilarating and provocative slate of original films for the first time ever on Prime Video,” said Julia Rapaport, co-head of movies for Amazon Studios. This collection from diverse and emerging filmmakers was a thrill to put together with our wonderful partners at Blumhouse Television. These chilling stories have something for everyone – ready to fright and delight genre fans and newcomers alike – and we are excited to share them with our global Prime Video customers.”
The first two films in the slate being released are The Lie and Black Box, which will debut on Oct. 6. The next two are Evil Eye and Nocturne, which premiere on Oct. 13.
