Amazon Prime Video are releasing eight new horror movies, just in time for this year’s Halloween.
Starting on October 6th, the anthology film series Welcome to the Blumhouse will begin streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Each film comes from Blumhouse, the production company founded by Jason Blum.
4 films will be released in October, with the remaining 4 premiering sometime in 2021. October 6th will see The Lie and Black Box hit the streamer, then on October 13th Evil Eye and Nocturne will release.
Check out the synopses bellow:
- The Lie will see the fallout of a teenage girl confessing to the heat-of-the-moment murder of her best friend, and her parents’ desperate attempts to cover up the crime. It will star Joey King, Peter Sarsgaard and Mireille Enos.
- Black Box will follow a man who, struck by tragedy, goes through a painful and experimental treatment – which leads to him doubting who he is.
- Evil Eye, which boasts Priyanka Chopra Jonas as executive producer, sees an apparently flawless romance turn twisted when a mother becomes certain there is a dark link between her past and her daughter’s boyfriend.
- Nocturne will see a student excelling in her music studies at an exclusive school with the help of a notebook belonging to a fellow – and recently deceased – student.
Each of the eight films are said to be separate, but will share similar themes of love and family.
Co-Head of Movies for Amazon Studios, Julie Rapaport, said: ‘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. This collection from diverse and emerging filmmakers was a thrill to put together with our wonderful partners at Blumhouse Television. These chilling stories have something for everyone — ready to fright and delight genre fans and newcomers alike — and we are excited to share them with our global Prime Video customers’.
