This halloween, Amazon Prime Video will haunt your eyeballs with a spine-chilling collection of eight brand new horror movies. Welcome to the Blumhouse begins on Amazon Prime Video Oct. 6.
Horror anthology series are big on streaming services right now, with Black Mirror on Netflix, Blumhouse's Into the Dark on Hulu, and the rebooted Twilight Zone on CBS All Access (Disclosure: CNET is a part of ViacomCBS). The twist here is that this is an anthology of eight movies rather than a series of episodes.
Each of the up-and-coming writers and directors present a "distinctive vision and unique perspective on common themes centred around family and love as redemptive or destructive forces."
The first four films are The Lie, Black Box, Nocturne and Evil Eye. Two desperate parents try to cover up their daughter's horrific crime. A man undergoes an agonizing experimental treatment after he loses his wife and his memory. A timid music student outshines her twin sister with the help of a classmate who recently died. And a mother becomes convinced the new man in her daughter's life has a dark connection to her own past.
