Blumhouse has become the premiere studio for horror over the past several years, thanks to hits like Get Out, Us, The Invisible Man, and the 2018 reimagining of Halloween. Now, producer Jason Blum is giving voice to a group of under represented filmmakers from diverse backgrounds, who each have their own unique perspectives on horror and suspense.
Starting this October, Welcome to the Blumhouse will drop four of a total of eight films to scare all of us silly. You can watch the full trailers for the first four films in the Welcome to the Blumhouse series down below:
Black Box is about a single father who, after losing his wife and his memory in a car accident, undergoes an agonizing experimental treatment that causes him to question who he really is. The movie stars Phylicia Rashad (Creed) and Mamoudou Athie, of the upcoming Jurassic World: Dominion. Directed by Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour Jr., this new psychological horror drops on October 6.
Director Veen Sud’s The Lie tells the story of what happens when a teenaged girl confesses to impulsively killing her best friend, and her two desperate parents attempt to cover up the horrific crime. This all leads to a complicated web of lies and deception. The Lie stars Mireille Enos, Peter Sarsgaard, and Joey King. This film looks to appeal to the same folks who loved David Fincher’s Gone Girl. The Lie also drops on October 6.
If ancient warnings are more your style, then might we suggest Evil Eye. The film explores what happens when a seemingly perfect romance turns into a nightmare as a mother becomes convinced her daughter’s new boyfriend has a dark connection to her own past. Directored by Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani and written by Madhuri Shekar. It stars Sarita Choudhury, Sunita Mani, Omar Maskati, and Bernard White. The Evil Eye streams on October 13.
Nocturne takes viewers inside the halls of an elite arts academy, where a timid music student begins to outshine her more accomplished and outgoing twin sister. All of this occurs when she discovers a mysterious notebook belonging to a recently deceased classmate. Written and directed by Zu Quirke, Nocturne stars Sydney Sweeney, Madison Iseman, Jacques Colimon, and Ivan Shaw.
