Jason Blum, Rebecca Rittenhouse Kick Off Hulu's INTO THE DARK At L.A. Film Festival
Blumhouse is this generation’s Universal, Hammer, hell, even late 90’s, early 2000’s Lionsgate. They’re the monolith of horror and it’s easy to see why. They love what they do and they adore their fans and fans of the genre. Since dominating the box office, Jason Blum and crew have branched out into novels, television, podcasts and now they’re coming straight to the streaming services.
Partnered with Hulu, Blumhouse is gracing us with a massively ambitious and incredibly fun project titled Into The Dark. Let me break this down for you: every month, for twelve months, Blumhouse will release a full length horror film through Hulu centered around a holiday from said month.
Holy guacamole, that’s the coolest damn thing I’ve ever heard. The first chapter drops in the spookiest month of all, on October 5th, and is called The Body. Check out the premiere from the L.A. Film Festival below, along with the synopsis and some photos from the event. Are you excited?! We sure as hell are. We’ll keep you updated with everything we know, as soon as we know it.
