Insidious and M3GAN Studio Blumhouse Opens Gaming Division

Blumhouse, the production company responsible for several popular horror movies such as Insidious, M3GAN and Paranormal Activity, has now established a gaming division called Blumhouse Games focused on working with indie developers to make horror games across consoles, PC and mobile platforms.

According to a new report from, Blumhouse Games will assist indie developers with bringing new horror titles to various platforms. Veteran industry developer Zach Wood, who previously worked on the Twisted Metal series, was named the president of the new Blumhouse gaming division.

“When we sat down with Zach and Don, they articulated an approach that resonated with Blumhouse’s model,” said Blumhouse president Abhijay Prakash. “We knew it was a perfect place for us to start our push into the interactive space.”

Blumhouse Productions has quite an impressive resume of acclaimed horror movies under its belt. Apart from producing the Paranormal Activity and Insidious movies, the company also produced Jordan Peele’s Get Out and Us, The Invisible Man, Freaky, The Black Phone and many more. The studio also worked outside of the horror genre producing Oscar-winning drama movies like Whiplash and BlacKkKlansman. Blumhouse is also behind the upcoming live-action Five Nights at Freddy’s movie starring Matthew Lillard and Josh Hutcherson.

It’s unclear which indie developers are in line to work with Blumhouse Games at the moment or whether the new games developed will use the horror IPs that the studio currently owns. That said, it would be pretty interesting to see what comes next. Indie horror is quite a creative space to experiment with ideas and with the backing of a large Hollywood production company, there’s a lot of potential.
