Review: Welcome to the Blumhouse Presents “The Manor” & “Madres”

The second "double feature" of Amazon Prime's "Welcome to the Blumhouse" series is a smart paring that has similar themes, female protagonists, and very different settings.   "The Manor" and "Madres" are both good examples of Jason Blum's successful production model where he gives new and unique writers/directors just enough money and support to make a [...]

Movie Review: “Evil Eye”

"Evil Eye" is one of the more unique Blumhouse offerings on Amazon Prime this month as it combines elements from Eastern superstition, family culture clashes, and a touch of horror.   It's also the first film I'm aware of that has been based on an Audible Original audio play. The Audible Original, written by Madhuri Shekar [...]

Movie Review: “Nocturne” (2020)

The most visually pleasing Blumhouse films so far this month is also the least satisfying.  "Nocturne" is an exercise in style over substance that doesn't quite live up to its synopsis. The bulk of the story takes place at a Musical Arts School where a pair of twins are competing for recognition and an invitation [...]

Movie Review: “The Lie”

Blumhouse's second of four movies arriving on Amazon Prime this month is "The Lie", a remake of the 2015 German Film "Wir Monster."  The screenplay, adapted by director Veena Sud, is a psychological thriller that explores how far people are willing to go to keep their family together.  It's a familiar premise but with a [...]

Movie Review: “Black Box”

"Black Box" is the first of four movies that Blumhouse is releasing on Amazon Prime during the month of October.  Blumhouse has a reputation for financing and distributing lower budget horror films that often expose fresh new talent to wider audiences.  Unfortunately, although interesting, "Black Box" falls a little flat. The premise is familiar yet [...]

Movie Review: “The Invisible Man”

Within the first few moments of the movie, it becomes apparently writer/director Leigh Whannell has done something unique with the Invisible Man story.  This should be no surprise after seeing his creativity on display in 2018's "Upgrade."   With hardly a sound beside her anxious breathing, we watch Cecilia Kass (Elisabeth Moss) attempt to sneak out [...]
