Amazon Studios is getting in on the business of scares.
The company is partnering with Blumhouse, the production empire created by Jason Blum, on a slate of eight spine-chilling genre films.
The movies, part of a program titled Welcome to the Blumhouse, will share a common theme, centering around family and love as redemptive or destructive forces, but each will have a unique vision and voice. It’s the first thematically connected original series from Amazon.
The first four films will premiere in October, with the rest of the slate being unveiled in 2021. The Lie and Black Box are launching on Oct. 6, and Evil Eye and Nocturne are debuting on Oct. 13.
