Masters of horror Blumhouse have partnered with Amazon Prime Video to bring eight films to the service this October under the "Welcome to Blumhouse" banner. In total, there will be eight films released, and details about the first four have been revealed.

With the first four films releases split between October 6 and 13, Amazon is really opening the door to high-tier horror films. Blumhouse is the production company behind films like Us, Split, The Invisible Man, 2018's Halloween, as well as the The Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and Purge franchises.

"This collection from diverse and emerging filmmakers was a thrill to put together with our wonderful partners at Blumhouse Television," said Julie Rapaport, co-head of movies for Amazon Studios, in a press release. "These chilling stories have something for everyone--ready to fright and delight genre fans and newcomers alike--and we are excited to share them with our global Prime Video customers."

"We're beyond excited that the visions of these talented filmmakers will finally be seen by genre fans around the world, especially during this time when people are seeking to escape and be entertained. And we love the innovative idea of programming like the classic drive-in or repertory theater experience," said Marci Wiseman and Jeremy Gold, co-presidents Blumhouse Television, in a press release. "Amazon have been incredible partners, linking arms and supporting the creative visions throughout the process of making these films."
