More Cast Members Move Into ‘A House On The Bayou’

The first of a planned eight horror/thrillers developed by Blumhouse Productions exclusively for the premium cable network Epix has taken a big step toward becoming a reality later this year.

A House on the Bayou now has its three lead actors in camp, as reported by Variety–actors who have strong genre backgrounds. The trio will work alongside Lia McHugh (The Lodge and Marvel’s The Eternals), who joined the project last month, as reported here in Horror News Network.

The new horror entry will star Angela Sarafyan (WestworldAmerican Horror Story and Blumhouse’s A Nasty Piece of Work), Paul Schneider (NOS4A2Channel Zero and Parks and Recreation) and Jacob Lofland (Maze Runner).

A House on the Bayou–the brainchild of writer/director Alex McAulay (Don’t Tell A Soul)–follows a couple (Schneider and Sarafyan) and their young daughter (McHugh) who are vacationing in an isolated house in Louisiana in an effort to reconnect as a family. But things don’t go exactly as planned (as might be expected in a horror film) when unexpected visitors arrive and “their facade of family unity starts to unravel as terrifying secrets come to light.”

Chris McCumber, president of Blumhouse Television, said this partnership with Epix is “an opportunity for us to collaborate with a great team while continuing to bring Blumhouse fans the kind of programming they know and love.”

A House on the Bayou–with Jason Blum as executive producer–has already started production in New Orleans and is expected to air on Epix sometime in December. The remaining seven Blumhouse thrillers are planned for 2022 releases.
