Blumhouse has announced that they have entered into an agreement with Rob Savage to create three films for the acclaimed production company.
Savage’s latest film, Host tells the story of a group of friends who keep in touch via Zoom during the COVID-19 pandemic. During one call a member of the group hires a medium to lead a séance. Of course, chaos ensues.
Critical reception for Host has been generally positive. The film holds a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 50 reviews, with an average rating of 7.9/10.
“We’ve been tracking Rob’s work for some time now, and when I got a look at Host, I saw the inventiveness in his work that Ryan Turek on the Blumhouse team had been championing,” said Blumhouse founder Jason Blum. “We are looking forward to getting this partnership underway immediately.”
“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Blumhouse on these movies. Their status in the horror genre is unmatched, but I equally admire their filmmaker-led approach. They embody the independent filmmaking spirit with which we made Host and I can’t wait to create some new nightmares with them.”
