‘Welcome to the Blumhouse’ Review: ‘Black Box’ and ‘The Lie’ Both Play With Perception and Deception – With Mixed Results
Posted on Monday, October 5th, 2020 by Chris Evangelista
With theatrical releases a bit up in the air, and plenty of options to pick from, the frightmasters at Blumhouse have decided to release four of their pending films on Amazon Prime Video, packaging them as Welcome to the Blumhouse. It’s a novel idea, arriving just in time for Halloween season, with films grouped together. The first pair to arrive – Black Box and The Lie may not be connected by story, but they do share similar elements – primarily how we perceive things, and how we let other things deceive us. But as far as launches go, Welcome to the Blumhouse is off to a shaky start.
