I don’t want a smart house after watching the Afraid trailer
July 3rd, 2024 under Blumhouse. [ Comments: none ]

Blumhouse hates us. They really, really hate us. They made us afraid of the Tooth Fairy, our birthdays, Generative Androids, and teddy bears, to name a few things. On August 30th, we can add AI smart houses to the list.

In AFRAID, Curtis (John Cho) and his family are selected to test a revolutionary new home device: a digital family assistant called AIA. Taking smart home to the next level, once the unit and all its sensors and cameras are installed in their home, AIA seems able to do it all. She learns the family’s behaviors and begins to anticipate their needs. And she can make sure nothing – and no one – gets in her family’s way.

As scared as that movie made us, I am still going to see it like all of their other movies.


Now Blumhouse wants us to be scared of Teddy Bears
November 16th, 2023 under Blumhouse. [ Comments: none ]

Blumhouse started the year off by making us afraid of lifelike robots named M3GAN. Now, they are ending the year with the trailer with the terrifying Teddy Bear Chauncey, who is an Imaginary friend.

When Jessica (DeWanda Wise) moves back into her childhood home with her family, her youngest stepdaughter Alice (Pyper Braun) develops an eerie attachment to a stuffed bear named Chauncey she finds in the basement. Alice starts playing games with Chauncey that begin playful and become increasingly sinister. As Alice’s behavior becomes more and more concerning, Jessica intervenes only to realize Chauncey is much more than the stuffed toy bear she believed him to be.

What did toys do to Jason Blum when he was a kid? Because he likes making kids afraid of the things they have in their rooms?

Imaginary comes out on March 8th. So we have a little over two months to hide all of the Teddy Bears in our homes.


Shark Tank scares up Blumhouse’s Jason Blum

Oh, the horror! Shark Tank is getting into some scary business this season because they asked Jason Blum to be a guest Shark, according to Deadline.

Blum is the CEO of Blumhouse, whose studio has brought us movies like M3GAN, the last three Halloween movies, Happy Death Day and its sequel, and Jem and the Holograms, to name a few.

The article did not say when he will appear on the show, but I am assuming the week of Halloween. Although, he has two movies coming out in October, The Exorcist: Believer on the 6th and Five Nights at Freddy on the 27th.

Other guest Sharks this season include Fanatics chairman & CEO Michael Rubin; Candace Nelson, founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes and CN2 Ventures and Pizzana co-founder; Emma Grede, CEO and co-founder of Good American and founding partner of Skims. Daniel Lubetzky, founder of Kind Snacks, Camino Partners and Starts With Us.

Shark Tank is back with all new episodes on September 29th.


Taylor Swift took on The Exorcist; and won
September 1st, 2023 under Blumhouse, Taylor Swift. [ Comments: none ]

Valerie Bertinelli went to see Taylor Swift in concert and declared that she can’t be human. The actress might be onto something.

Some might say that Swift went to the same crossroads as Robert Johnson and made a pact with the Devil.

Why do I think that? Well, the singer announced yesterday that she is releasing a big screen version of her Eras Tour on Friday, the 13th of October.

That is the same date that Warner Bros was planning on releasing the sequel to The Exorcist.

I say planning because the studio realized they can’t compete against the Swifties. So Jason Blum, the head of Blumhouse, threw up the white flag and said, “Look what you made me do. The Exorcist: Believer moves to 10/6/23. #TaylorWins”

Therefore, Taylor is stronger than the Exorcist. And the only entity that can defeat an exorcist is The Devil himself. So she is the Devil.

Back to Blum and Swift, I wonder if there is Bad Blood between them now. And I bet he is Team Kanye West because it makes more sense for his film to be released on Friday the 13th than hers. But she is more powerful than he will ever be, and he has M3GAN, Michael Myers, The Purge, and Paranormal Activity on his side.


Chucky and The Exorcist is coming to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights
July 28th, 2023 under Blumhouse, Chucky. [ Comments: none ]

It is officially Halloween season. Take that, Labor Day and Jewish Holidays! So Universal is announcing a few more of the haunted houses that they will have at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.

They already announced that Stranger Things and The Last of Us videogame will be scaring visitors. And today, they revealed that they will be joined by Universal’s legendary monsters, Chucky, and The Exorcist: Believer. The latter hits movie theaters on Friday the 13th. So by, not knowing what to expect will make that destination the scariest.

As scary as these all sound. I am bummed that they aren’t bringing back Killer Klowns from Outer Space. I even made a cotton candy cocoon suit for the occasion. Maybe next year!

However, this year the fun begins at Universal Orlando Resort on September 1st – November 4th and at Universal Studios Hollywood on September 7th – October 31st.
