welcome to the blumhouse trailer

Blumhouse and Hulu have spent the last year-and-a-half releasing Into the Dark, a series of horror films that debut every month on that streaming service. Now, Blumhouse is taking a similar concept to Amazon with Welcome to the Blumhouse, a series of eight horror movies that will arrive over time. The first four of the films is due to hit Amazon in October, and ahead of their release, a Welcome to the Blumhouse trailer gives us a glimpse of what’s in store.

Welcome To The Blumehouse Trailer

I’ve been extremely underwhelmed by Into the Dark, so I really hope Welcome to the Blumhouse is a step-up in terms of quality. Welcome to the Blumhouse consists of “eight unsettling, genre movies produced by Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Television and Amazon Studios,” and the first four of the films – Black BoxEvil EyeThe Lie, and Nocturne – are headed to Amazon Prime Video in October. In addition to giving us our first look at footage from the films, this trailer also features the song “What’s Up” by FJØRA, so it has that going for it.
