Blumhouse’s New Movie A HOUSE ON THE BAYOU Adds Lia McHugh

The Lodge star Lia McHugh will lead Blumhouse’s new TV horror movie, A House on the Bayou. Written and directed by Alex McAulay (Don’t Tell a Soul). The film follows a troubled couple and also their teenage daughter who go on vacation to an isolated house in the Louisiana bayou to reconnect as a family. But when unexpected visitors arrive, their façade of family unity starts to unravel, as terrifying secrets come to light.

McHugh will play the 14-year-old daughter of Jessica and John. She becomes unnerved by the tension she feels rising within her family. She’s not thrilled about spending a week with her parents in a remote bayou house. And she becomes dangerously intrigued by the attention of a handsome, older, local boy.

Production is scheduled to begin late spring for a December 2021 premiere.

McHugh will also star in Marvel’s Eternals. A House on the Bayou is the first of eight standalone horror films under a deal between Epix and Blumhouse Television.

Michael Wright, president, EPIX, shared in a statement: “Blumhouse’s track record of producing high-quality, audience-favorite films have made them a driving force in the horror genre renaissanceAnd have been top-notch partners for EPIX. We can’t wait to work with Jason Blum and his talented team in this new capacityAnd make EPIX the exclusive home of more Blumhouse content.”

Chris McCumber, President Blumhouse Television, also added: “This partnership with EPIX is an additional opportunity for us to collaborate with a great team in helping them grow their slate of genre films, while continuing to bring Blumhouse fans the kind of programming they know and love.”
