Blumhouse Horror Films Releasing in 2022-23 to Keep on Your Radar – MovieWeb

Blumhouse has a packed release schedule through 2023. Here are the horror films to pay attention to.
Blumhouse has made a name for itself with its horror content. While the company has branched out, notably with black comedies like Vengeance and movie musicals like Jem and the Holograms, it is known for being the home to franchises like Paranormal Activity, The Purge, and Insidious.
As the production company has gained traction with major players like Universal and streaming services, they have been able to drastically increase the number of films they put their brand behind. From an eight-film deal with EPIX to a horror anthology series with Hulu that gave audiences movies themed around holidays, Blumhouse has stepped up their game, and any film with their name on it is one to check out.
But with so many, how do you know which ones to focus on? Here are five upcoming releases you should keep on your radar.
In conjunction with Paramount Home Entertainment comes The Visitor. When married couple Robert (Finn Jones) and Maia (Jessica McNamee) move back to Maia's childhood home, Robert finds a portrait in the attic that looks exactly like him. The only hint to the identity of the individual is that he's called "the visitor." Nothing is what it seems in this small town as he goes on a hunt to discover why it seems like everyone in town already knows who he is and who the twin could be.
The movie is part of an eight-film deal Blumhouse Television made with EPIX. Interested parties can watch it on demand starting October 7, 2022, or on EPIX in December.
Horror's favorite Scream Queen is returning to screens as audiences are taken back into the world of Michael Myers. This time it comes in the form of Halloween Ends, a sequel to the 2021 film Halloween Kills and the final installment of the new Halloween trilogy. Four years after the ending of Halloween Kills, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is writing a memoir and trying to find the beauty of life again. That is shattered when a child turns up dead, and his babysitter is accused of the crime.

Curtis returns in her role, with Andi Matichak as Allyson, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, and Will Patton as Officer Frank Hawkins, all reprising their roles from Halloween Kills. James Jude Courtney and Nick Castle are also returning as the iconic masked villain.
Halloween Ends hits theaters and will be available to stream on Peacock for premium members on October 14, 2022.
From the mind of James Wan, the filmmaker behind The Conjuring, Saw, and Insidious franchises, comes the next doll to haunt your dreams. Gemma (Allison Williams), a roboticist, creates a new doll that is designed to be the ideal friend to children. When her niece comes to live with her, it seems like she has the perfect test subject, even when things start to go wrong.
Rather than being played by a prop stand-in or special effects, the M3GAN doll has two humans behind it. Amie Donald is the body, while Kimberley Crossman is the voice.
M3GAN comes to theaters on January 13, 2023, the first Friday the 13th of the new year.
The fifth chapter of the Insidious franchise is set to hit theaters next year. The little we know about the film is that there is a significant time jump, with Dalton heading off to college but not escaping the demons. Patrick Wilson and Ty Simpson will be returning in their roles as Josh and Dalton Lambert, respectively. The new film also sees the return of Rose Byrne as Renai Lambert.

Insidious: Fear the Dark marks the directorial debut for Wilson. As a staple in horror franchises over the last decade, it only makes sense that he takes his skills behind the camera. Maybe then he will finally see the demon standing behind him.
Right now, the new Insidious has a July 2023 release date, but that could change as the year comes to an end.
As part of that eight-film deal with EPIX, Blumhouse is making a film with the producer of the V/H/S franchise. Roxanne Benjamin will direct There's Something Wrong With the Children, a movie following two couples on a weekend trip and the strange occurrences that arise when their kids start wandering into the woods. The script was written by T.J. Cimfel and David White. Both previously worked on V/H/S Viral and Intruders.
The film is set to star Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights, Midnight Mass, The Purge: Anarchy) as Ben, Alisha Wainwright (Shadowhunters, Raising Dion) as Margaret, Amanda Crew (The Haunting in Connecticut, Final Destination 3) as Ellie, Carlos Santos (Gentefied) as Thomas, Briella Guiza as Lucy, and David Mattle as Spencer.
While There's Something Wrong With the Children doesn't have a release date at the moment, it is in post-production, so audiences can expect a release date soon.
