If you’re a horror fan, there’s a good chance you’ve seen a film made by Blumhouse Productions. In fact, you’ve probably seen way more than one. The studio is very prolific, and almost all of their efforts have been hits.
Blumhouse counts among its properties Insidious, Sinister, The Purge, Paranormal Activity, Get Out, Happy Death Day, and many more, plus all the sequels to those films. Horror fans definitely have much to thank them for.
Last year, Blumhouse’s latest feat involved the resurrection of the Halloween franchise, via a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 classic that brought back Jamie Lee Curtis to her signature role of Laurie Strode.
Halloween (2018) was a huge hit, and when asked recently by Cinema Blend if Blumhouse would be interested in also rebooting Hellraiser and Scream, Jason Blum not only said yes, but that the idea is already being considered.
While Blum made sure to stress that he isn’t currently working on anything Hellraiser or Scream, the fact that he wants to is intriguing. Both are ripe for revitalization, as neither franchise has hit a real home run in many years.
