Amazon Studios releases unsettling key art for Welcome to the Blumhouse

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Amazon Studios has unveiled its key art for its upcoming program, Welcome to the Blumhouse, which will feature eight unsettling genre movies produced by Jason Blum's Blumhouse and Amazon Studios.

According to Amazon Studios, the movies will be "Sharing the spine-tingling suspense that’s a Blumhouse signature, each film presents a distinctive vision and unique perspective on common themes centered around family and love as redemptive or destructive forces. This slate marks the first ever program of Amazon Original movies on Prime Video that are thematically connected. The films showcase exciting up-and-coming talent, alongside established actors in exceptional and shocking new roles."

Amazon Prime Video will launch the initial slate of four films as double features starting with THE LIE directed by acclaimed writer/director Veena Sud (The Killing, 7 Seconds) and BLACK BOX directed by up-and-coming writer/director Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour Jr. (Born with It), both premiering on October 6, 2020. Launching the following week on October 13, 2020, is EVIL EYE, from talented young directors Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani (A Day’s Work, Jinn) and executive produced by Priyanka Chopra Jonas (Quantico, White Tiger), and NOCTURNE written and directed by filmmaker Zu Quirke (Zugzwang, Ghosting) making her feature film debut. The latter four films will launch in 2021. Julie Rapaport, Co-Head of Movies for Amazon Studios, had this to say about their latest endeavor:

“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.”

Welcome to the Blumhouse will launch in October, perfectly timed for the Halloween season, on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories worldwide. Marci Wiseman and Jeremy Gold, co-presidents of Blumhouse Television, added their enthusiasm about the upcoming project:

"We’re beyond excited that the visions of these talented filmmakers will finally be seen by genre fans around the world, especially during this time when people are seeking to escape and be entertained. And we love the innovative idea of programming like the classic drive-in or repertory theater experience. Amazon have been incredible partners, linking arms and supporting the creative visions throughout the process of making these films."

This certainly sounds like an interesting project and I'm actually looking forward to it. Hopefully, we'll be getting some trailers soon to see what it's all about. For now, you can check out the official key art below!
