Coming to Amazon Prime in October 2017

Amazon Prime launches its new horror anthology series Lore, adapted from the true-history horror podcast of the same name, in mid-October, in plenty of time for Halloween. It’s the most anticipated of the Amazon original series debuting this month, which also includes Inside Edge from India set in the world of professional cricket, the British crime drama import Fearless with Helen McCrory, the third season of the eighties coming-of-age dramedy Red Oaks, and the reboot of the goofy Sid and Marty Krofft series Sigmund and the Sea Monsters for kids.

Other streaming TV arrivals includes the acclaimed The Americans: Season 5 and the timely American Horror Story: Roanoke (Season 6).

From Amazon Studios come the true life drama Megan Leavey with Kate Mara and Doug Liman’s war thriller The Wall with Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena. They joins a slate of new films that includes Oscar winner Arrival with Amy Adams, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back with Tom Cruise, Song to Song with Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, and Michael Fassbender, and horror remake Blair Witch.

Older films rotating through the library include The Whistleblower with Rachel Weisz and Vanessa Redgrave, The Machinist with Christian Bale, Oscar-winner Fargo from the Coens, nineties comedies Clueless with Alicia Silverstone and Election with Reese Witherspoon, and Ghost World with Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson.
