New on Amazon Prime Video: All the Movies and TV Coming in October

Amazon gets it: October is the most frightening month of the year, a time when we streamers seek out the creepiest, crawliest movies and shows we can possibly find in order to get ourselves all kinds of spooked out just in time for Halloween. Fittingly, the streaming service’s slate for next month includes a heap of worthwhile additions, horror-oriented and otherwise.

In the television department, Amazon’s most noteworthy addition is Lore, the streamer’s six-episode adaptation of Aaron Mahnke’s mega-popular true-history horror podcast of the same name. Debuting on Oct. 13, Lore is described by Amazon as “an unscripted horror anthology series dealing with scary and often paranormal true events that have spawned modern-day nightmares.” Sign us right up. Other additions in TV include the equally Halloween-appropriate American Horror Story season six (Roanoke), as well as the fifth season of FX’s acclaimed spy drama The Americans, the debuts of Amazon originals Inside Edge and Sigmund and the Sea Monster, and new seasons of Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth and Mr. Robot.

Amazon’s movies for next month strike a similar balance between horror hits, critically acclaimed dramas and crowd pleasers. In the horror category, Amazon is adding Stephen King adaptations Pet Sematary and Pet Sematary Two, Philip Kaufman’s overlooked 1978 classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the return of Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre II, and iffy 2016 reboot Blair Witch. In the critically acclaimed drama category, Amazon is adding the Coen Brothers classic Fargo, Terence Malick’s acclaimed music industry drama Song to Song and Denis Villeneuve’s Oscar-winning sci-fi film Arrival. And as for crowd pleasers, streamers can look forward to John Carpenter’s Escape from L.A., surprise box-office smash Girls Trip and classic ‘90s teen movie Clueless. Last and least, we shall not speak of The Dark Tower, nor The Emoji Movie, except to lament the fact that they, too, are on this list.

There’s much more coming to the service next month, so check out Amazon’s October sizzle reel below, and their full lineup of incoming October programming beneath that.
