Blumhouse Productions is keeping the scares and shivers coming right through the lingering COVID-19 pandemic–and one of the studio’s latest offerings is hitting Amazon Prime Video in just about a month.
Welcome to the Blumhouse--a collection of eight original horror films–will debut on the streamer Oct. 6 and 13, and a sneak peek at the terrors on tap is available by watching the trailer below.
The first four movies are teased in the trailer, as reported by comicbook.com, with the second quartet scheduled to air sometime in 2021.
Julie Rapaport, co-head of movies for Amazon Studios, said these new movies will be a treat for all horror fans. “We are excited to launch Welcome to the Blumhouse with this slate of original films for the first time ever on Prime Video,” she said. “These chilling stories have something for everyone–ready to fright and delight genre fans and newcomers alike.”
The first four films include:
* The Lie: Written and directed by Veena Sud, this entry stars Mireille Enos, Peter Sarsgaard and Joey King and premieres Oct. 6. The story follows a teenage girl who confesses to killing her best friend and her parents who try to cover up the horrific crime.
* Black Box: Written and directed by Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour Jr. (with co-writer Stephen Herman), the film stars Mamoudou Athie, Phylicia Rashad, Amanda Christine, Tosin Morohunfola, Charmaine Bingwa and Troy James. The story follows a man who loses his wife and his memory in a car accident and undergoes an experimental treatment that causes him to question who he really is. Black Box debuts Oct. 6.
* Evil Eye: Based on the Audible production from writer Madhuri Shekar and directed by Elan Dassani and Rajeen Dassani, this movie stars Sarita Choudhury, Sunita Mani, Omar Maskati and Bernard White. The film–which debuts Oct. 13–deals with a seemingly perfect romance that turns into a nightmare when a mother becomes convinced that her daughter’s new boyfriend has a dark connection to her own past.
* Nocturne: Written and directed by Zu Quirke, this film stars Sydney Sweeney, Madison Iseman, Jacques Colimon and Ivan Shaw. This movie–debuting Oct. 13–follows a music student who outshines her more accomplished twin sister after discovering a mysterious notebook belonging to a recently deceased classmate.
