Blumhouse founder/CEO and horror patron, JASON BLUM.

LATIN HORROR founder Edwin Pagán interviewed Blumhouse impresario and genre producing icon, JASON BLUM, whose vast horror portfolio as a producer has shaped the movie-going landscape and taste for more than a decade: Paranormal Activity (franchise), The Purge (franchise), Insidious, Jessabelle, The Green Inferno, Black Christmas (2019), Oculus (reviewed by LH here), GET OUT, Into the Dark TV series, and another 200 titles! More recently he has launched the Welcome to Blumhouse series of made-for-TV streaming features that favor emerging directors and stories of color (BINGO HELL, Black As Night, and Madres).

The phone interview (please excuse the quality) was conducted on October 6, 2021 in advance of the release of David Gordon Green’s HALLOWEEN KILLS, (which hits on October 15th), wherein we discus the Halloween franchise, the seeds and path of his career in the industry, his subsequent success in producing genre films, his formation of Blumhouse, and why he has championed creatives of color and diversity via his platform.

Make sure to catch HALLOWEEN KILLS starting October 15th: in a theater near you and streaming only on Peacock TV.

Peep the visual audio podcast-style interview below.

Edwin "El Miedo" Pagán
Edwin "El Miedo" Pagán is the Founder-In-Chief of LATIN HORROR. Pagán is a writer, filmmaker and life-long horror fan. In 2008 he founded LATIN HORROR, an online niche market website specializing in Latin-influenced horror, its documentation, and promotion as a distinct genre. Pagán is at the forefront of the Latin "Dark Creative Expressionist" movement, a term he coined as a means of identifying the millions of lost souls who live outside the rim of mainstream society and whose lifestyle and work is grounded in horror, the macabre, and gothic arts. Currently, he is penning a book entitled 'MIEDO - The History of Latin Horror.' Trivia: He is noted for ending his written correspondence with the offbeat salutation 'There will be SANGRE!'
