Welcome to the Blumhouse: Unsettle In on Prime Video!

This Halloween season, Amazon and Blumhouse are teaming up to deliver some Halloween frights with “Welcome to the Blumhouse, a series of eight unsettling thrillers developed and produced with the intent to create original films that push the boundaries of genre storytelling. They’re thrillers meant to tap into our deepest fears and keep us on the edge of our seats while exploring relatable themes of cultural and societal pressures and personal anxieties. While the anthology series will feature eight films total, look for the first four this October, available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video worldwide.

The series showcases diverse casts led by emerging and underrepresented filmmakers and features some of the most exciting up-and-coming talent alongside well-established actors, all of which allows for a unique anthology in which each film is excitingly different than the last. Though each film varies in tone, style, and thrills, the “Welcome to the Blumhouse” anthology collection centers around the theme of family and love as a redemptive or destructive force.

The Lie and Black Box arrive today, and Evil Eye and Nocturne on October 13, 2020. The remaining four are slated for release in 2021. “Welcome to the Blumhouse” is produced by Blumhouse Productions, founded by Jason Blum. The company is best known for producing films like Get OutThe Purge franchise, and recent remakes The Invisible Man and Black Christmas. Executive producers Marci Wiseman and Jeremy Gold are Co-Presidents of Blumhouse Television, which produced projects like Sharp ObjectsThe Jinx, and The Good Lord Bird.

The thrills don’t end there, either. Prime Video, Blumhouse, and Little Cinema invite you to step inside the worlds of NocturneBlack BoxEvil Eye, and The Lie for an interactive virtual mystery that weaves the Blumhouse universe together. Available worldwide for two days only, The Blumhouse Live invites you to explore a labyrinth of virtual rooms, live performances, interactive tarot readings, an escape room that holds the key to hidden areas, and even more surprise twists. A secret guest DJ awaits you as you enter through The Blumhouse basement. Probe the bartender for hints via real-time interaction while having drinks in the kitchen. Look to the tarot reading for clues about your past, present, and future. Memory and rivalry play a massive role in the upper floors, as you’re drawn to the attic by powerful forces. Of course, you’ll need to find a key before you can enter. All four films and the world of Welcome to the Blumhouse are contained in one mysterious virtual home. To explore and uncover its secrets, RSVP at WelcomeToTheBlumhouse.com to secure your ticket to one of the following live shows:

As for what you can expect with “Welcome to the Blumhouse,” here’s a tease on the films releasing in October:

Black Box – October 6

Black Box marks the feature debut for director Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour. The teleplay was penned by Osei-Kuffour Jr. and Stephen Herman, with the story by Herman. The film stars Mamoudou Athie (UnderwaterThe Circle) as Nolan, a man struggling to raise his daughter alone after losing his wife and his memory in a car accident. In his drive to become a better father for daughter Ava (Amanda Christine), he seeks out Dr. Lillian Gray (Phylicia Rashad). He agrees to undergo an experimental treatment that may bring back his memories. As warm and encouraging as Dr. Gray might be during the agonizing treatment, it turns out she may harbor questionable motives. Black Box marks an intense exploration of identity and the perception of memory, with an eerily prescient look at the role technology plays in our lives. Charmaine Bingwa, Tosin Morohunfola, and Troy James (Scary Stories to Tell in the DarkHellboy) also star. The film is executive produced by William Marks, Mynette Louie, Jeremy Gold, Marci Wiseman, Lisa Bruce, Aaron Bergman, Jay Ellis, and Jason Blum.

Black Box releases on Amazon Prime Video on October 6, paired with Veena Sud’s The Lie.


The Lie – October 6

How far would you go to protect your child? That’s the thrilling question asked in The Lie, a film written and directed by Veena Sud (“The Killing”). Based on the German movie Wir Monster, the Hitchcockian style thriller follows two parents spinning an ever-growing web of lies and deceit to protect their teen daughter after she confesses to impulsively killing her best friend. Peter Sarsgaard and Mireille Enos star as parents Jay and Rebecca, and Joey King portrays their daughter Kayla. Boasting strong performances, The Lie examines the emotional devastation and the ripple effects of a divorce on a family. Feelings of guilt, regret, internalized anger, lashing out, and even the ever-dangling hope for reconciliation catalyze this dark thriller’s events. There’s nowhere to hide the cracks in this vulnerable and exposed, broken family in the cold, snowy setting. The Lie is produced by Alix Madigan-Yorkin, Christopher Tricarico, Jason Blum, and executive produced by Howard Green, Kim Hodgert, Jeanette Volturno, Couper Samuelson, and Aaron Barnett.


Evil Eye – October 13

Written by Madhuri Shekar, based on her award-winning Audible podcast, Evil Eye follows a superstitious mother who becomes convinced that her daughter’s new boyfriend is the reincarnation of a man who tried to kill her thirty years ago. Directed by Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani, the first feature that the twin brothers have directed together, the film stars Sarita Choudhury, Sunita Mani, Omar Maskati, and Bernard White. A blend of traditional mysticism and modern paranoia, Evil Eye centers on the compelling relationship between mom Usha (Choudhury) and Pallavi (Mani), two women who couldn’t be further apart in geographical location and personality. Pallavi’s more Americanized, independent spirit clashes with her mother’s traditions and beliefs in astrology, mythology, and protective totems. The film also explores the notion of how past traumas might linger in a family, generations later. Evil Eye features an entirely South Asian cast and directors. It is executive produced by Kate Navin, Emilia Lapenta, Anjula Acharia, Guy Stodel, Jeremy Gold, Marci Wiseman, Lisa Bruce, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Jason Blum.

Evil Eye double features with Nocturne on October 13.


Nocturne – October 13

The Faustian bargain gets a modern, classical makeover in this psychodrama by writer/director Zu Quirke, making her breakout feature film debut. Set at an elite arts academy, a timid music student starts to outshine her more accomplished, extroverted twin sister when she discovers a mysterious notebook belonging to a recently deceased classmate. That ominous rise to the top of her class fuels the central conflict between the sisters, played by Sydney Sweeney (“Euphoria”) and Madison Iseman (Annabelle Comes Home). While the teens may be pursuing a highly competitive career in classical music, the modern score is by British electronic musician and composer Gazelle Twin. Quirke teamed with cinematographer Carmen Cabana (“High Fidelity”) to create a moody, foreboding atmosphere for this psychological thriller. The film is executive produced by Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly, Matthew Myers, Jeremy Gold, Marci Wiseman, Lisa Bruce, and Jason Blum, and also stars Jacques Colimon and Ivan Shaw.

Check out Black Box and The Lie on October 6, and Evil Eye and Nocturne on October 13, 2020, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video worldwide.
