Do you feel that change in the air? The temperature lowering, eerie mists creeping in, ghouls rising the dead of night – it must be that spooky season is approaching once more! As October looms, the various streaming services are readying brand new scary content to keep up all up at night – and while Netflix has horror maestro Mike Flanagan’s next limited series Midnight Mass on its side, Amazon has another set of four brand new Blumhouse horror flicks on its side under the ‘Welcome To The Blumhouse’ banner. Last year brought us The Lie, Black Box, Nocturne, and Evil Eye – and now we have four trailers and posters for their latest batch of streaming spook-fests.

Welcome To The Blumhouse - 2021 poster crop

First up, there’s the brilliantly-titled Bingo Hell – a, you guessed it, bingo-hall horror! Directed and co-written by Gigi Saul Gerrero, this one follows a group of elderly residents from a local community fighting back against sinister incomer Mr. Big (Richard Brake), led by Adriana Barraza’s Lupita. Check out the trailer:

Next up is Black As Night – a Black vampire movie set in New Orleans fifteen years post-Hurricane Katrina, directed by Maritte Lee Go and starring Asjha Cooper as teenager Shawna who fights back against the influx of blood-suckers.

Third, we have Madres, which looks to be a Rosemary’s Baby-esque thriller about the terror of impending motherhood. It’s directed by Ryan Zarazoga, and follows a Mexican-American couple who move to 1970s California in the run-up to their child’s birth, and get more than they bargained for.

Finally, there’s The Manor. The trailer for this one gives off a Shutter Island meets Relic vibe – a haunted house movie where the house is actually a nursing home, and Barbara Hershey’s Judith is told that the spooky things she’s experiencing are actually dementia. It’s directed by Axelle Carloyn.

So there we have it – plenty of brand new movies to add to this year’s fresh horror drop, all streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Bingo Hell and Black As Night arrive on 1 October, with Madres and The Manor coming a week later on 8 October. Bring on the sleepless nights.
