The "Welcome to the Blumhouse" program continues the legacy of original, elevated, genre storytelling that is a Blumhouse signature. Centered around unsettling themes of institutional horrors and personal phobias, the films tap into people’s deepest fears. These social thrillers present a distinctive vision and unique perspective. Similar to the first four films of the program, the slate continues with a thruline theme making it the first ever program of Amazon Original movies on Prime Video that are thematically connected. The films continue to showcase exciting up-and-coming filmmakers, alongside established actors in exceptional and shocking new roles.
