No group has defined modern horror productions quite as well as Blumhouse.
The unit, led by producer Jason Bloom, was responsible for franchises such as “Insidious”, “Sinister” and “Paranormal Activity”, while reviving moribund series such as “Halloween” and “The Craft” and supporting films found as one of the formats. The most versatile and popular of contemporary horror movies. (There was a Halloween Horror Nights home at Universal Studios based on the company’s fearsome logo for screaming out loud.)
Blumhouse is also unique in the sense that there is also no horror outfit that produces as many horror movies as Blumhouse. With their directing deal with multiple streamers and studios, it’s as if there’s always a new opening for a Blumhouse horror movie. This is definitely the case this weekend, when “fire igniter” It makes its way to theaters while also streaming on Peacock. A remake of the 1984 film (inspired by Stephen King’s own novel), the new film stars Zac Efron and Ryan Keira Armstrong, as father and daughter (who has kinesthetic powers).
It got us thinking about the best horror movies in Blumhouse, the one we’d reach over and over in the video store if video stores were still around and physical media was still a big part of our lives. This is the cream of the bloodstained crop. And we love them very much.
