Blumhouse Productions

Blum

Founder / CEO

Blum’s ability to generate big scares with tiny budgets became abundantly clear with 2007’s sleeper hit “Paranormal Activity,” which spawned one of Hollywood’s most successful fright franchises. The “Purge,” “Insidious” and “Sinister” series soon followed under his Blumhouse Productions banner. Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” in 2017 delivered a zeitgeisty smash that comes along once a decade or so, winning its creator an Oscar for best original screenplay. Already a revolutionary film producer, Blumhouse is fast moving into TV with Joshua Green’s “Devil’s Bargain,” an insider account of Steve Bannon and Donald Trump’s fraught political alliance, and a Showtime series on fallen Fox News chief Roger Ailes, based on Gabriel Sherman’s 2014 book “The Loudest Voice in the Room.”
