Blumhouse is partnering up with Epix, and they will develop and produce eight original horror/genre-thriller films exclusively for the network. Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum will serve as executive producer on these projects.
The first film to be developed under the new partnership is titled A House on the Bayou, and it comes from writer and director Alex McAulay.
The film follows,
“a troubled couple and their preteen daughter who go on vacation to an isolated house in the Louisiana bayou to reconnect as a family. But when unexpected visitors arrive, their facade of family unity starts to unravel, as terrifying secrets come to light.”
Casting for the project is currently underway, and it’s expected to premiere on Epix in December 2021. The remaining seven movies being developed will be released in 2022.
Epix president Michael Wright said in a statement announcing the new slate.
“Blumhouse’s track record of producing high-quality, audience-favorite films have made them a driving force in the horror genre renaissance, and have been top-notch partners for EPIX. We can’t wait to work with Jason Blum and his talented team in this new capacity, and make EPIX the exclusive home of more Blumhouse content.”
Blumhouse Television president Chris McCumber said:
“This partnership with EPIX is an additional opportunity for us to collaborate with a great team in helping them grow their slate of genre films, while continuing to bring Blumhouse fans the kind of programming they know and love.”
