Nanny by Nikyatu Jusu is the new horror film produced by Blumhouse and exclusively distributed in streaming on Amazon Prime Video from December 16th.
When the blumhouseproduction house of the legendary Jason Blum, moves to produce a horror, then it means that an interesting product is on the way. We are, therefore, waiting to be able to see the new Blumhouse creature entitled Nannyhorror film directed by Sierra Leonean-American director Nikyatu Jusu.
The film won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival 2022, the most important film festival for independent films. There is, therefore, a strong expectation around this production.
PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION
The film in the United States will be presented in a few select cinemas from November 23rd. In Italy and in the rest of the world, however, it will only be available on Prime Videos. Thus continues the union between Jason Blum and the web TV and streaming platform owned by the giant Amazon. A combination that has seen the publication of two series of films in the series Welcome to the Blumhouse.
In addition to Blum’s house, the film was also produced by Nikkia Moulterie, Daniela Taplin Lundberg for production houses Stay Gold Features, Topic Studios, LinLay Productions.
As has already happened for films such as Run Sweetheart Run, black box, Evil Eye, The Lie And Nocturne just to name a few films produced by Blumhouse and available on Prime Video, we are faced with a powerful horror that we can define as social. Social because it analyzes and emphasizes the life of minorities and diversity.
NANNY – THE CAST
The main cast consists of Anna Diop, Michelle Monaghan, Sinqua Walls, Morgan Spector, Rose Decker, Leslie Uggams, Zephani Idoko.
