Inside the final decade, Blumhouse has been a key determine in serving to horror movies turn out to be an even bigger a part of mainstream popular culture. With traditional franchises like Halloween and The Exorcist underneath its belt alongside its personal originals akin to The Purge and M3GAN, the manufacturing firm continues to develop. One in every of its subsequent large initiatives is an adaptation of Scott Cawthorn’s in style online game sequence Five Nights at Freddy’s, and if Jason Blum has his approach, it received’t be the one sport that Blumhouse tackles.

In a current interview with Discussing Film, Blum talked about his pleasure on the surge of online game variations which have led to Super Mario Bros. being a billion-dollar hit. Throughout that discuss, he talked about that he was “undoubtedly trying ahead to discovering extra video games which might be in style and that we may flip into horror films.” At the very least a kind of is already identified: again in March, the studio revealed it and James Wan’s manufacturing firm Atomic Monster had been planning to adapt Behaviour Interactive’s multiplayer slasher sport Dead by Daylight for movie.

Blum’s remark is notable since earlier this yr, Blumhouse additionally introduced the creation of its personal video game division. Although a challenge hasn’t been introduced but, it’s been made clear that the corporate plans to maintain the “make it low-cost, however make it properly” technique it makes use of for movies and create video games with “small” budgets of $10 million or much less. It wouldn’t be shocking if a part of its technique additionally concerned making a sport for a particular franchise (both one which’s dormant or nonetheless comparatively energetic), then boosting that franchise’s profile even additional with a movie.

To date, 2023 has seen a surge in triple-A horror sport releases with releases akin to Amnesia: The Bunker and remakes for Useless Area and Resident Evil 4 (which has been particularly successful for Capcom). With Alan Wake II and a remake for Silent Hill 2 each set to come back out this yr, there’s a way that the horror style is properly and really again within the blockbuster video games area. And with how sport builders are so desperate to get their work adapted to other mediums, it wouldn’t be all that shocking if Blumhouse turned its eye to one in all these sequence, or one thing else with a superb quantity of clout.

5 Nights at Freddy’s will launch in theaters on October 27.
