Blumhouse Productions was founded in the early 2000s and, in just 20 years, has become one of the world's leading horror companies. At the same time, the credo of Blumhouse's management has remained unchanged all these years: it is not the amount of money invested in a film that makes it successful, but the creative freedom of the director.

The Game Rent website writes: "Blumhouse has revived old franchises such as Halloween and The Exorcist, as well as created new horror films. Some of their most notable low-budget horror titles are now classics: Paranormal Activity, Happy Death Day, Get Out, and The Invisible Man.

We have already introduced our readers to the top five horror films by Blumhouse. Here are 5 more films that can be considered a breakthrough in this genre.

Get Out (2017)

Get Out is probably a classic Blumhouse movie. And if you want to understand what kind of movies this company makes, start your acquaintance with its products with Jordan Peele's film.

A direct proof of the level of this work is its nomination for the Oscar in the Best Picture category. Described by critics as post-horror, Peele's film references numerous subgenres, from slasher to gothic horror, and psychologically traces the dark undercurrents in the bowels of American society.

Our overall rating for Get Out: Jordan Peele has outdone himself in his directorial debut and raised the horror bar to an unattainable level.

M3GAN (2022)

Blumhouse managed to try its hand at many horror subgenres before tackling killer dolls. When it did, M3GAN immediately became an anticipated franchise. The story of how advanced technology took charge of an orphaned girl breaks into a subgenre dominated by the Child's Play franchise, leaving behind other attempts to create a story about ventriloquist dolls.

The film showcases Blumhouse's strengths, combining horror and sci-fi, a strong cast, and a phenomenal soundtrack.

Freaky (2020)

Blumhouse knows how to find new twists and turns in familiar concepts. This is how they combined a worn-out plot with a body swap with a story about serial killings. In particular, in this case, student Millie discovers that she is in the body of the killer Butcher, who is terrifying society.

This interpretation was inspired by the movie Happy Death Day, which also mixed time travel and slasher.

Insidious (2011)

After Paranormal Activity, Insidious showed that the Blumhouse model also works with supernatural horror.

The story concept was developed by James Wan and Lee Whannell, the creative team behind Saw. This time, torture and violence were eliminated, and demonic possession was added.

The result was a stripped-down suspense master class that launched a new franchise and led to the creation of Wan's Conjuring universe at New Line Cinema.

To date, the total value of the Insidious franchise has amounted to about $750 million with a total budget of less than $50 million.

Creep (2014)

Blumhouse did not stop looking for new ways to bring horror films to the screen after the release of Paranormal Activity. Creep features a videographer hired to record the diary of a client who is not so much eccentric as homicidal.

Full of ambiguity about the reality of what he sees, this film is another mash-up from a production company that likes to mix genres. The combination of "found footage" and home invasion horror has already spawned one sequel, but more are expected.
