Horror production juggernaut Blumhouse Productions' sister company Blumhouse Television is taking a new project underway. Amazon announced that it has signed a deal with Jason Blum's company for eight exclusive features to be available only on Amazon Prime. Not only will eight films be produced, but the films will also be thematically connected to each other.

This is the first deal of its kind Amazon has made for feature films. Head of Amazon Studios Jennifer Salke said in a statement: “Jason Blum has built an empire based on fear, shock and all things spine tingling. He has redefined the horror genre for fans who are hungry for high concept scares. Whether it’s found footage, a socially conscious terror comedy or a pure sinister adrenaline ride, he reinvented and infused the genre with cultural relevancy. We can’t wait to see the nightmares he brings direct to service for our Prime Video global audience.”

Blum, who is known for his low-budget, high-concept films, says the plan is to utilize a fresh new set of filmmakers. “We are delighted Amazon is entrusting Blumhouse to deliver its signature thrills and chills to its global audience through this deal,” said Blum. “This is a great opportunity for Blumhouse Television to empower underrepresented filmmakers offering a fresh take on the dark genres loved by fans the world over.”

Blumhouse Television also currently has a deal with Hulu. A new horror feature is released every month through next October in year-long anthology series Into the Dark.

Blum has produced several blockbuster horror hits, including the newest Halloween movie, the Purge series, the critically acclaimed Get Out, and Paranormal Activity, the most profitable film of all time. With a more diverse set of directors at the helm, we are interested to see what culturally significant films come to us with this revolutionary deal.
