Synopsis:

“Invite yourself into the Blumhouse of Horrors 10-Movie Collection and visit the most thrilling, chilling, and unforgettable characters from Get Out, The Purge, Ouija, Split, The Visit, Unfriended, Truth or Dare, The Boy Next Door, Happy Death Day and Ma.” – Universal Pictures Home Entertainment

My Take:

Invite yourself into the Blumhouse of Horrors 10-Movie Collection and visit the most thrilling, chilling, and unforgettable characters from Get Out, The Purge, Ouija, Split, The Visit, Unfriended, Truth or Dare, The Boy Next Door, Happy Death Day, and Ma. The studio and filmmakers, including Jordan Peele and M. Night Shyamalan, that redefined the genre of horror present ten of the most spine-tingling films that will have you running for the front door! The collection includes iconic horror and suspense thrillers with all-star casts including Ethan Hawke, Jennifer Lopez, Octavia Spencer, James McAvoy and more. There are hours of bonus content including featurettes, deleted scenes, alternate endings, behind-the-scenes & much more!

Each of the films in this collection have been reviewed here on AVS. The films are a mixed bag in terms of entertainment value ranging from 1.5 stars (The Boy Next Door, Ouija, and Truth or Dare) to 4.0 stars (Get Out). The others fall somewhere in between. Some, like The Purge and Happy Death Day didn’t receive terribly high film ratings from me but, have decent replay value. Unfriended, Ma, Split and The Visit are fun to watch and hold up well too. Audio/video quality across the board is pretty solid and is averaged below. These discs are the same Blu-ray renderings as previously released, containing the same technical encodings and bonus material.

Rather than rehash each review I have provided links to the reviews. The collection comes housed in a “chubby” amaray keep case with each disc having their own push button style holder in a page layout. The accompanying slipcover is standard fare made of lightweight cardboard with the images embossed on it. For fans of these films it’s convenient to have them housed in one collection that takes up the space of two cases rather than ten.

Final Thoughts:

I am most definitely a fan of the genre and while the movies in the Blumhouse of Horrors 10-Movie Collection can be hit or miss I found the all to be entertaining on some level. This collection comes to Blu-ray from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment featuring solid high definition audio/video, legacy bonus material and a digital code for streaming them. For fans of these films it’s convenient to have them housed in one collection that takes up the space of two cases rather than ten (if that’s important to you). Since these are identical to the previous releases there would be no other benefit to purchasing this release. If there are titles contained that you don’t already own and want, this is certainly worth considering.
