Two of the best-known horror studios are now joining forces! Last Tuesday, it was announced that Blumhouse and Atomic Monster are merging into one studio.

Jason Blum announced the news via X with the words "The preeminent homes for horror are now under one roof". The news came shortly after the release of the horror film "Night Swim", which was produced by both studios. Although James Wan's company Atomic Monter will now use Blumhouse's existing structures for its own popularity, the two companies will be run separately - in order to ensure creative autonomy and brand identity, according to Deadline.

Blumhouse is probably the biggest name in the horror genre and has been responsible for franchises such as "Paranormal Activity", "The Purge" and "Halloween". But smaller movies such as Jordan Peele's "Get Out" are also part of the studio's repertoire. Wan's Atomic Monster, on the other hand, is known for the "Saw" series, "The Conjuring" and "Insidious". Together, the two studios have generated more than 11.6 billion dollars since 2004 - thus, the merger is a logical consequence.
