Amazon Prime Video has revealed the first Welcome to the Blumhouse trailer, which you can watch using the player below. The Welcome to the Blumhouse trailer features the song “What’s Up” by FJØRA and produced by Linda Perry. The song is a reimagining of Perry’s original version.
Black Box, Evil Eye, The Lie, and Nocturne are the first four of eight films in the Welcome to the Blumhouse series, set to premiere worldwide on Amazon Prime Video in October.
FJØRA is a musical artist who reaches far beyond the “pop” genre for inspiration, surrounded by the sounds of jazz, world music, classical compositions, and Hollywood film scores.
Grammy, Golden Globe, Critic’s Choice award-nominated producer and Songwriter Hall of Fame inductee Linda Perry is one of the most accomplished people working in music today. Beginning her musical journey as the lead singer of 4 Non Blondes, she has profoundly impacted pop culture through her work as a producer and songwriter.
Welcome to the Blumhouse is a program of eight unsettling, genre movies produced by Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Television and Amazon Studios.
