Take a look at the trailer that’s arrived for Welcome to the Blumhouse, the first four movies of an eight-movie anthology horror line-up heading to Amazon Prime Video.
All produced under Jason Blum’s Blumhouse banner, these four films will be heading to the streaming service in October. There’s The Lie, which comes from director Veena Sud (The Killing) and stars Peter Sarsgaard, Mireille Enos, and Joey King; Black Box, directed by Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour Jr. (Born With It) and starring Mamoudou Athie, Phylicia Rashad, and Amanda Christine, among others; Evil Eye, directed by Elan Dassani & Rajeev Dassani and starring Sarita Choudhury and Sunita Mani, among others; and Nocturne, from director Zu Quirke and starring Sydney Sweeney, Madison Iseman, Jacques Colimon and Ivan Shaw. You can check out the synopsis for each beneath the trailer.
Looks like interesting array of films from up and coming filmmakers with diverse backgrounds. The trailer, importantly, shows off enough creepy moments to entice genre fiends and keep with Blumhouse’s horror brand. Looking forward to seeing what’s on offer here.
The Lie and Black Box are released on October 6th. Nocturne and Evil Eye hit Amazon Prime on October 13th. The next four films will be released in 2021.
