HanleyBuzzFeed ContributorFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink Blumhouse is back in the horror business this summer with the highly anticipated Joe Hill adaptation, The Black Phone. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Blumhouse But for every Sinister and Paranormal Activity, there have been a slew of Blumhouse-produced movies that never quite reach such great heights. With that in mind, I've rounded up 25 films from the Blumhouse library that you might have missed. 1. The Babymakers Millennium Entertainment / Courtesy Everett Collection Broken Lizard's Jay Chandrasekhar directs this raunchy but critically panned comedy starring Olivia Munn and Paul Schneider about a couple that is having trouble conceiving, which inspires the husband to orchestrate a robbery of a sperm bank to which he had previously donated. 2. The Bay Lions Gate / Courtesy Everett Collection This found footage body horror flick never quite took off like other Blumhouse titles in the aforementioned subgenre, but is nonetheless somewhat notable for its pedigree behind the camera in director Barry Levinson, the filmmaker behind Rain Man, The Natural, and Wag the Dog. 3. Plush Automatik Entertainment / Album / Alamy Twilight and Red Riding Hood filmmaker Catherine Hardwicke co-wrote and directed this erotic thriller starring Emily Browning as a grieving rock star whose new guitarist transforms from unexpected muse to a living, breathing nightmare. 4. 13 Sins Dimension Films / Courtesy Everett Collection An English-language remake of 13 Beloved from The Last Exorcism director Daniel Stamm, this film stars Mark Webber as a newly unemployed salesman whose life is turned upside down after a mysterious caller offers him big money to complete a series of increasingly dangerous and morally corrupting challenges. 5. Not Safe for Work View this video on YouTube Blumhouse / Via youtube.com From the director of Jumanji and Captain America: The First Avenger, Not Safe for Work is a brutal thriller that follows a paralegal who must escape his nearly empty workplace one fateful evening after witnessing a relentless hitman commit a series of murders at his law firm. 6. Mockingbird View this video on YouTube Blumhouse / Via youtube.com This divisive found footage offering from The Strangers filmmaker Bryan Bertino offers three interconnected stories about people who were randomly gifted cameras with the promise of winning money if they keep filming and follow specific instructions, only to learn that they're apart of something bigger and more terrifying than they could have imagined. 7. Jessabelle Lions Gate / Courtesy Everett Collection Before she established herself as one of the most compelling performers on television via her work on Succession, Sarah Snook headlined this supernatural horror film (which was delayed for nearly a year after being pulled from a wide theatrical release) about a young woman who discovers the unfathomable truth behind her family's past after moving back home with her estranged father in Louisiana. 8. Area 51 Paramount Pictures / Alamy Oren Peli's long-awaited (and delayed) directorial follow-up to Paranormal Activity was eventually released for a one-weekend run at Alamo Drafthouse theaters before being dumped to video-on-demand platforms, though the found footage film has found an unlikely surge in interest on streaming platforms in recent years. 9. The Lazarus Effect Relativity Media / Courtesy Everett Collection Jiro Dreams of Sushi filmmaker David Gelb made his sole venture into fictional feature film directing with this undercooked horror thriller, the cast of which includes such stars as Olivia Wilde, Evan Peters, Donald Glover, and Mark Duplass. 10. Exeter View this video on YouTube Viva Pictures / Via youtube.com Blumhouse Productions co-produced this gory possession flick from the director of the 2003 Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, which was unceremoniously released to DirecTV in the US in 2015. 11. Jem and the Holograms Universal Pictures / Courtesy Everett Collection John M. Chu's polarizing adaptation of Christy Marx's beloved animated television series was met with a seething response from longtime fans of the property as well as the worst opening weekend for any major studio release in 2015. 12. Visions Blumhouse Productons / Chapter One Films / Album / Alamy Isla Fisher, Anson Mount, Gillian Jacobs, and Jim Parsons star in this twisty direct-to-VOD horror offering about a pregnant woman coming to terms with a fatal car accident from her past as she suspects she is experiencing supernatural nightmares and hallucinations after moving to her new vineyard home. 13. Curve View this video on YouTube Universal Pictures / Via youtube.com Another Blumhouse title quietly sent to the VOD marketplace in early 2016, this brutal thriller about a young woman who is hunted by a violent stranger after he fixes her broken-down car stars dancer-turned-actor Julianne Hough and was co-produced by Orphan and House of Wax filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra. 14. The Veil View this video on YouTube Universal Pictures / Collider Extras / Via youtube.com Jessica Alba, Lily Rabe, Reid Scott, and Thomas Jane round out the star-studded cast of Blumhouse's overlooked, not-quite-found-footage fright film about the sole survivor of a Jonestown-esque suicide cult who escorts a documentary crew in their search for footage from their compound as inexplicable events begin taking place. 15. Martyrs View this video on YouTube Blumhouse / Anchor Bay Entertainment / MovieClips Indie / Via youtube.com While an attempt to remake one of the most gruesome and infamous films of the French New Extremism movement is somewhat of a futile gesture, Blumhouse certainly tried to do so to little acclaim from horror fans and critics alike in 2015. 16. The Keeping Hours Blumhouse Productions / Collection Christophel / Alamy Starring Lee Pace and Carrie Coon, this quasi-horror drama that digs into themes of grief, reconciliation, and the acceptance of death was essentially buried upon its limited release in 2017. 17. Incarnate BH Tilt / Everett Collection Released by Blumhouse directly through their BH Tilt label, this Aaron Eckhart-starring mix between The Exorcist and Inception failed to scare up much enthusiasm or business among horror fans when it hit theaters in 2016. 18. The Resurrection of Gavin Stone High Top Releasing / Courtesy Everett Collection Blumhouse Productions and WWE Studios joined forces for this saccharine faith-based dramedy about a former child star (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Brett Dalton) whose court-ordered community service sends him to a lavish religious stage production that inspires him to confront his own moral compass. 19. Birth of the Dragon James Dittiger / BH Tilt / Everett Collection From the director of The Adjustment Bureau, this misguided fictionalization of the events surrounding a private fight between Bruce Lee and Wong Jack-man was a critical pariah and a massive box office bomb upon its theatrical bow in 2016. 20. Amityville: The Awakening Blumhouse Productions / Alamy A messy and ultimately forgotten reboot for the Amityville Horror franchise, The Awakening was delayed for more than two years after negative test screenings and reshoots before being bizarrely released by the Weinstein Company for free on Google Play. 21. A House on the Bayou Epix / Courtesy Everett Collection The first of an eight-film deal between Blumhouse and the premium cable channel Epix, this 2021 horror thriller (which feels like an amalgam of 20 other horror pictures) follows a family recovering from an act of betrayal who discover a mysterious locked room in their vacation home. 22. Like. Share. Follow. View this video on YouTube Blumhouse Productions / Dread Central / Via youtube.com Released on Halloween 2017 via Cinemax, this horror film not only failed to make a splash on its initial release but is almost impossible to watch via legal means on any platform these days. 23. Delirium View this video on YouTube Universal Pictures / Via youtube.com Co-produced alongside Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way Productions, Delirium stars Topher Grace as a man recently released from the care of a mental institution only to suspect that his inherited home may be haunted in this direct-to-VOD psychological horror flick. 24. Dashcam Momentum Pictures / Courtesy Everett Collection The controversial follow-up to Rob Savage's 2020 horror sensation Host, this slice of screen-based scare fare follows a livestreaming right-wing conspiracy theorist and her former bandmate after a series of unexpected events pit them against a gun-toting sociopath and a mysteriously violent old woman on the outskirts of London. 25. This Is the Night View this video on YouTube Blumhouse / Via youtube.com From the longtime shepherd of The Purge franchise, this period piece drama about Staten Islanders who reevaluate their lifestyles and destiny following the release of Rocky III didn't connect with critics during its video-on-demand run and barely registered with audiences when the film hit Netflix soon thereafter.
