Blumhouse Productions


Founder / CEO

A one-man horror factory, Blum has produced a billion-dollar-plus run of low-budget franchises including “Paranormal Activity,” “The Purge” and “Insidious,” the latter of which has its fifth installment due in 2023. Along the way, he earned three Oscar noms for best picture (“BlacKkKlansman,” “Get Out,” “Whip­lash”). In 2022, he found success with “The Black Phone,” wrapped his slasher-film revival for Universal with “Halloween Ends” and shot the first of three “Exorcist” movies to be released in theaters and on Peacock beginning in 2023. Talking-doll horror-thriller “M3GAN” is also set for Universal in January and was co-­produced with James Wan’s Atomic Monster, which is in talks to merge with Blumhouse.
