(Ch. 9) The Blumhouse Impact on Horror


Jason Blum left the indie studio of Miramax  to try his own hand at producing and creating his own kinds of low budget films (with a classic studio mentality). Blum,  the production genius behind the successes of Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Get Out, Split and Halloween (2018), understands filmmaking; he understands audience, and he understands the financial side of the industry. His approach to the industry is much like indie film legend Earl Owensby, Blum approaches filmmaking with a factory business model mentality. His company churns our films with a very specific business model in place, and he sticks to it.
