Blum

Founder / CEO

Blum is remarkably prolific, pumping out horror films year after year under his Blumhouse banner, but even he was slowed by the pandemic. While the dark cinematic reimagining of “Fantasy Island” and Aussie Leigh Whannell’s feminist take on “The Invisible Man” made it into theaters before the shutdown, other projects saw their theatrical releases waylaid, including “The Hunt,” which opened just as theaters were closing, and several titles that went digital, such as “The Craft: Legacy” on VOD and four films sold to Amazon for October releases. But Blum kept priming his production pipeline, signing Jamie Lee Curtis’ Comet Pictures to a three-year first-look deal and fast-tracking a new take on “Wolfman” for Universal.
