Amazon Prime Video's "Welcome to the Blumhouse" is a new program of eight unsettling, genre movies produced by Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Television and Amazon Studios. 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. Amazon Prime will launch the initial slate of four genre films as double features starting with: The Lie directed by acclaimed writer / director Veena Sud (of The Killing, 7 Seconds) and Black Box directed by up-and-coming writer / director Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour Jr. (of Born with It), both premiering on October 6th this fall. Launching the following week on October 13th is Evil Eye, from talented young directors Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani (of A Day's Work, Jinn) and also executive produced by Priyanka Chopra Jonas (of Quantico, White Tiger), and finally Nocturne written and directed by filmmaker Zu Quirke (of Zugzwang, Ghosting) making her feature film debut. The next set of four films arrives in 2021. First impression? Who's curious?
