The article discusses how Blumhouse Productions, a film production firm of Jason Blum, gets out of the horror niche, focusing on impressions for the movie "Get Out," directed by Jordan Peele, as a horror movie, which turned out to be a thriller film. Blum shares his view on the tone of the film, the perception of Blumhouse as the house of horrors, and how people failed to look at genre movies as real art, as well as the common theme of the company's films, which is injustice.
