welcome to the blumhouse review evil eye

While the Welcome to the Blumhouse experiment continues to leave something to be desired, the way these titles are being released is rather clever. The films in the Amazon/Blumhouse partnership aren’t connected, but they’re being paired-off in ways that make sense, at least thematically. The first two releases – The Lie and Black Box – featured stories dealing with perception. Now, the latest two releases – Evil Eye and Nocturne – focus on expectation, be it the expectation of pleasing a parent by settling down with the right partner, or becoming the artistic giant you’ve always wanted to be. And yet, once again, the end results are lacking.

welcome to the blumhouse review

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.

Evil Eye First Look

What if you suspected that your daughter’s new fiancé was the reincarnation of a man who tried to kill you 30 years ago? That’s the clever and creepy premise behind Evil Eye, a new Blumhouse horror movie that puts South Asian characters and mythology front-and-center.

Directed by twin brother filmmakers Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani, Evil Eye is part of the upcoming Welcome to the Blumhouse program, which will see a number of films from diverse filmmakers debut on Amazon this October. And while Blumhouse, the studio behind Get Out, The Invisible Man, and The Purge, has become a household name for genre enthusiasts, this film feels emblematic of the entire initiative: it’s a chance for filmmakers from underserved backgrounds to tell stories unique to their heritage, putting their personal touch on a horror film being presented on one of the biggest platforms in the world.
