Blumhouse and Atomic Monster Merger a Done Deal

Horror giants Jason Blum and James Wan have officially joined their creative houses, choosing a three-way ownership structure between majority owner Blum, Wan, and Comcast; both companies maintain brand identity and autonomy.

Horror giants Jason Blum and James Wan have officially merged their respective creative houses, Blumhouse Productions and Atomic Monster, into one spooktacular family. The move was first announced in November 2022. Blum took to X to announce the mega deal’s completion, posting a video with the caption, “The preeminent homes for horror are now under one roof.”

Blumhouse, known for its unique approach to the horror genre, is responsible for the Halloween, Paranormal Activity, and Purge franchises, garnering the studio over $5 billion worldwide. Atomic Monster, on the other hand, touts The Conjuring and Saw franchises, earning the studio over $3.5 billion worldwide.

Both parties will continue to operate as separate labels, maintaining brand identity and autonomy within a three-way ownership structure between majority owner Blum, Wan, and Comcast. The Blumhouse infrastructure will be leveraged to allow Atomic Monster to expand to new content such as games, a goal Wan badly wishes to achieve.

The studios have already proven a successful and productive relationship with M3gan and Night Swim, which hits theaters January 5.
