Ranking The Best Blumhouse Production Movies

Ranking Blumhouse Productions Entire Catalog

“What are Blumhouse Production’s Best Movies?” We looked at all of Blumhouse’s filmography and ranked them against one another to answer that very question!

We took all of the Blumhouse Production Movies and looked at their Rotten Tomato Critic, Rotten Tomato User, Metacritic, Metacritic User, IMDB, and Letterboxd scores, ranking them against one another to see which movies came out on top. The movies are ranked in our list below based on which movies have the highest overall score between all 6 review sites in comparison with all of the other movies by the same company. The process is very scientific.

The full ranking chart is also included below the countdown on the bottom of the page. We will update the article if/when a new movie by Blumhouse is released. Although it probably won’t be immediate so the scores on each site have time to settle and aren’t overly influenced by the early, usually much more opinionated, users.

Happy Viewing!
