'Welcome to the Blumhouse': All The Movies in Amazon's Horror Anthology Series

Blumhouse Productions, the name behind films from Get Out to Paranormal Activity and The Purge, is one of the most iconic horror studios of modern times. And as in 2020, it has teamed up with Amazon Studios to present four new scary movies just in time for Halloween.

The first series, in 2020, had some big names appearing in the films, from Joey King and Peter Sarsgaard to Sarita Choudhury and Phylicia Rashad.

This year, actors including Barbara Hershey and Richard Brake have joined the mix, in an eclectic group of films.

Two of the movies showcase older actors, The Manor and Bingo Hell, while there is also a teenage vampire thriller and Mexican-American ghost story.

Newsweek breaks down the four films ahead of their release.

Bingo Hell—released on October 1

Directed by Gigi Saul Guerrero, Bingo Hell is one of two films in the collection that focuses on senior citizens.

Lupita (played by Adriana Barraza), a 60-something neighborhood activist, pulls together her friends to fight back when the mysterious Mr. Big (Brake) takes over her beloved bingo hall.

Soon, however, some of her neighbors turn up dead, and she realizes there is more going on as whenever anyone cries 'Bingo!', a diabolical presence brings about their death.

L. Scott Caldwell and Joshua Caleb Johnson also star in the movie.
