Amazon Prime Video is set to release 'Welcome To The Blumhouse' which is a program that will consist of eight movies that have been produced by Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Television and Amazon Studios. There are four films that will release in October, and one of them is titled 'Black Box,' which is kind of a horror thriller. 

Release date

'Welcome to Blumhouse: Black Box' releases on October 6, 2020.


Playlist details the synopsis as such, "Having lost his wife and his memory in a tragic car accident, news photographer Nolan Wright (Mamoudou Athie) is desperate to regain a sense of normalcy for both himself and his young daughter Ava (Amanda Christine). So when brilliant neuropsychiatrist Dr. Lillian Brooks (Phylicia Rashad) invites him to participate in an experimental treatment that might reverse his condition, he agrees. Using a hypnosis-inducing device called the Black Box, she unearths lost memories which allows patients to experience them first-hand. But the memories he experiences reveal a much darker past than he anticipated. Even more terrifying is the disfigured creature that threatens to kill Nolan in his surreal dream-state. A haunting descent into one man’s shattered psyche, 'Black Box' is a high-tech thriller that poses the question: Do we run our minds, or do our minds run us?"
