Screenings: Attend The Virtual World Premiere Of Amazon And Blumhouse’s ‘Black As Night’!

We’re happy to offer our readers the chance to get spooked at the virtual world premiere of Black as Night, the new “Welcome to the Blumhouse” thriller coming to Amazon Prime on October 1st!

SYNOPSIS: A resourceful teenage girl leaves childhood behind when she battles a group of deadly vampires in Black as Night, an action-horror hybrid with a strong social conscience and a biting sense of humor. Fifteen years after Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans, a new threat leaves its mark on the Big Easy in the form of puncture wounds on the throats of the city’s vulnerable displaced population. When her drug-addicted mom becomes the latest victim of the undead, 15-year old Shawna (Asjha Cooper) vows to even the score. Along with three trusted friends, Shawna hatches a bold plan to infiltrate the vampire’s mansion in the historic French Quarter, destroy their leader, and turn his fanged disciples back to their human form. But killing monsters is no easy task, and soon Shawna and her crew find themselves caught in a centuries-old conflict between warring vampire factions, each fighting to claim New Orleans as their permanent home.

The screening takes place virtually on Thursday, September 30th at 9 PM EST. To enter, simply send an email to with “WELCOME TO THE BLUMHOUSE Screening” in the subject line.
