With Halloween nearly upon us, I thought I’d rank the horror movies of the famous Blumhouse Productions, but, WOW, I didn’t realise just how many movies they have produced! Well over 100, including Oscar bait like Whiplash (2014) and BlacKkKlansman (2018). With such a massive output in a relatively short time, Blumhouse’s output isn’t always top notch. So, using a data-driven approach and collecting the scores for ALL the Blumhouse films from IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes and Letterboxd, I averaged a score for each and here are the top 25.
One of Blumhouse productions first big hits. Soon after moving into a suburban tract home, Katie (Katie Featherston) and Micah (Micah Sloat) become increasingly disturbed by what appears to be a supernatural presence. Hoping to capture evidence of it on film, they set up video cameras in the house but are not prepared for the terrifying events that follow.
The final part in M. Night’s trilogy and produced by Blumhouse. In a series of escalating encounters, former security guard David Dunn uses his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendell Crumb, a disturbed man who has twenty-four personalities. Meanwhile, the shadowy presence of Elijah Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
One of the horror movies that put Blumhouse on the map. A family discovers that dark spirits have invaded their home after their son inexplicably falls into an endless sleep. When they reach out to a professional for help, they learn things are a lot more personal than they thought.
It’s Blumhouses’s version of Groundhog Day, but with a killer twist. Tree Gelbman is a blissfully self-centered collegian who wakes up on her birthday in the bed of a student named Carter. As the morning goes on, Tree gets the eerie feeling that she’s experienced the events of this day before. When a masked killer suddenly takes her life in a brutal attack, she once again magically wakes up in Carter’s dorm room unharmed. Now, the frightened young woman must relive the same day over and over until she figures out who murdered her.
