Amazon Prime released four trailers for each of its new films in their Welcome to the Blumhouse film series. Each of the four films will hit the streaming service in October just in time for Halloween. The four films are part of a collaboration between Amazon and Blumhouse Productions. The series of films is set to feature diverse casts and emerging filmmakers.
The four trailers were posted to the Amazon Prime Youtube channel. The films are set to premiere as double features with The Lie and Black Box premiering together on October 6th and Evil Eye and Nocturne premiering the following week on the 13th. The various movies feature a veritable list of talent, including Joey King, Sydney Sweeney, Mireille Enos, Phylicia Rashad, and Peter Sarsgaard. Check out the trailers below:
Each film highlights a different horrific tale. The Lie features a family covering up their daughter's murderous activities. Black Box is about a husband's efforts with an experimental treatment to regain his memory after a tragic car accident. Evil Eye centers around a mother's paranoia about her daughter's new boyfriend. Finally, Nocturne is a ghost story about a pair of twins at an elite arts academy.
Blumhouse has dominated the horror genre in the last few years, releasing a string of successful hits. Currently, the head of the studio, Jason Blum, is focused on the future, looking at how horror movies will be made in a post-pandemic world. With Welcome to the Blumhouse, Blum has found one of those solutions. The first four films are part of a planned series of eight films, with four more scheduled to be released in 2021.
