Welcome to Blumhouse will begin releasing horror pics on Amazon this October.
The anthology brings together eight films from different creators under the Blumhouse banner. The films are unrelated in plot, but united in theme; each “centers around family and love as redemptive or destructive forces.”
“We are excited to launch Welcome to the Blumhouse with this exhilarating and provocative slate of original films for the first time ever on Prime Video,” said Julie Rapaport, Co-Head of Movies for Amazon Studios. “These chilling stories have something for everyone.”
Four films will debut in October this year, with the following four in the anthology releasing in 2021. The Lie and Black Box premiere October 6. Evil Eye and Nocturne debut the following week on October 13.
