Welcome to the Blumhouse
It’s Halloween month! Here is what to expect from Welcome to the Blumhouse on Prime Video. Titles include science fiction horror film Black Box, mystery-thriller The Lie, horror film Evil Eye and supernatural-horror film Nocturne. The first four films in the series will be released in October 2020, with four more titles set to arrive in 2021.
Quote from Blumhouse founder and CEO Jason Blum:
Amazon and Blumhouse were aligned in wanting to make original stories from diverse perspectives. It’s been a priority for both companies to work with women and underrepresented filmmakers and give a platform to new voices. One of the ways we’ve been able to make great movies and TV shows is to tap into pools of talent that haven’t been drawn on over the years.
