As always, Blumhouse aims to keep genre fans on the edge of their seats. The horror powerhouse has a horde of new series soon to be unleashed and we’re going to make sure you don’t miss a moment of the action. Here’s what you need to know:

 

 

 

First off, there’s “Welcome to Blumhouse,” a collection of the first four of eight terrifying tales, that includes  Black Box and The Lie, which premieres on Amazon Prime on October 6th. Nocturne and Evil Eye arrive on October 13th

Writer-director Zu Quirke makes her directorial debut with Nocturne, set inside an art academy where a music student begins to outshine her twin sister after discovering a mysterious notebook.  Sydney Sweeny (Euphoria)  and Madison Iseman (Annabelle Comes Home) star.

In Black Box, directed by Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour Jr., who co-wrote the film with Stephen Herman,  a single father loses both his wife and his memory in a can accident. After undergoing an experimental procedure he begins to question who he really is.

Evil Eye is based on playwright Madhuri Shekar and centers on a seemingly perfect romance that turns into a nightmare. Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani directed.

The Killing‘s Veena Sud directs The Lie, a tale that follows two parents attempt to cover up a murder their daughter has confessed to.

 

 

 

Next up, there’s the groundbreaking five-part documentary series “A Wilderness of Error,” from Emmy Award-winning producer Marc Smerling and Emmy Award-winning executive producer Jason Blum, producers of the groundbreaking and award-winning series The Jinx comes a five-part documentary series based on the best-selling book by Errol Morris.

When Army surgeon Jeffrey MacDonald is sent to prison for killing his family, a storm of swirling narratives challenges our very ability to find the truth all the while overshadowing a chilling possibility: MacDonald may be an innocent man.

Morris appears in the series which Smerling directs and executive produces, alongside executive producers Blumhouse Television and UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group.

The series premieres on September 25, 2020, on FX, followed by its next day arrival on Hulu.

 

 

 

 

 

Last, but not least, is the limited series based on the book “The Good Lord Bird” by bestselling author and executive producer James McBride which won the 2013 National Book Award for Fiction.

“The Good Lord Bird” is told from the point of view of “Onion” (Joshua Caleb Johnson), a fictional enslaved boy who becomes a member of John Brown’s (Ethan Hawke) motley family of abolitionist soldiers during Bleeding Kansas – a time when the state was a battleground between anti- and pro-slavery forces – and eventually finds himself participating in the famous 1859 raid on the Army depot at Harpers Ferry. Brown’s raid failed to initiate the slave revolt he intended but was an event that hastened the Civil War.

“The Good Lord Bird” weaves a humorous, dramatic, and historical tapestry of Antebellum America, spotlighting the complicated and ever-changing racial, religious, and gender roles that make up the American identity.

The series debuts on Showtime on October 4, 2020.
