“Blumhouse fan? Then this was made for you!”
The horror genre is truly a beast of it’s own — there are so many strange things that apply here that work nowhere else. A bad movie, for example, in the drama department will be thrown straight in the trash without question and forgot about, while a bad horror film can live forever. The other thing the horror genre can do is thrive during the Halloween season — there’s nothing like throwing on a random horror-film in the middle of October. That’s what I did last night, and I’ll be doing it again tonight.
Basically, what I’m trying to say is that I’ll flip the coin with any horror movie — I rarely will with any other genre. Do you do the same?
I think the best way to go about reviewing these movies is ranking them from best to worst. At the top of this ten-piece collection is Get Out, Split and The Visit — while the bottom see’s Ouija, Truth or Dare, Ma and The Boy Next Store. Naturally, the films that fall in the middle for me are The Purge, Unfriended & Happy Death Day.
Blumhouse has been racking in the cash for two decades now. They are well know for horror, of course, but even more so (at least in my opinion) it’s their gross totals that take the cake. They have figured out the secret sauce of taking a small budgeted film and turning it into a money making machine. Sometimes they release a hit and other times, a dud — but even the dud’s turn fat profit. For example, the highly acclaimed film Get Out grossed $252 million at the box office on a $5 million budget. Amazing right? A dud like Ouija, which also had a $5 million budget still grossed $103 million at the box office… it makes no sense, but like I said — they have found the secret sauce.
At the very least, Blumhouse’s worst films still warrant a fun, one-time watch at the theater with family, friends and complete strangers. I think that’s part of their secret sauce they cook up time and time again.
Packaging wise, this release is housed in a standard 10-disc case with each disc getting its own tray — that means no discs are being stacked! Even better, the casing fits like a book on bookshelf, perfect for collectors. I hate it when collections get cheap packaging — this isn’t anything amazing — but it’s sturdy for the long-haul.
Taking everything I’ve said into account, you can be sure that Blumhouse of Horrors: 10-Movie Collection gets my recommendation to own — if you fit the criteria. First and foremost, how many of these films do you already own? If you just have a few then this should warrant a pickup for any horror fan, especially when this pops up on sale in the near future. Secondly, do you know a horror fan? If you do, then this will be a perfect stocking stuffer for the holiday season. No matter what you decide to do, you can head out and grab a copy at your local retailer today.
