Prime Video announced the titles and casting details for the next four movies in the platform’s “Welcome to the Blumhouse” collection. The titles include “The Manor,” written and directed by Axelle Carolyn, “Black as Night: from director Maritte Lee Go, “Madres,” directed by Ryan Zaragoza, and “Bingo” from director Gigi Saul Guerrero. The thrillers will launch in 2021 on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories worldwide.
The studio added, “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.”
