Amazon Prime Announces Over 70 New Movies/Shows For October

3 hours ago


As we head into the last week of September, let’s look ahead at what’s coming to Amazon Prime in October. It’s the usual mix of great newly-licensed titles arriving at the top of the month and a range of original movies and TV shows dropping throughout the upcoming weeks. But, what with it being spooky season, this time Prime’s October haul is specifically geared towards giving you some scares during Halloween.

For starters, horror fans will not want to miss the launch of Blumhouse’s “Welcome to the Blumhouse” series with four original films going up across October. The first duo, Black Box and The Lie, land on Prime on October 6th. Then, a week later on the 13th, both Evil Eye and Nocturne debut. Anything with Blumhouse behind it is usually worth checking out, so make sure not to miss those.

October 1st delivers a couple of vampire movies, too. Namely, John Carpenter’s Vampires and 2007’s 30 Days of Night starring Josh Hartnett. On the lighter side of things, meanwhile, Truth Seekers lands the day before Halloween. The latest collaboration between Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the show is about a bunch of wannabe paranormal investigators who might actually find what they’re looking for.

Check out the full list of what’s coming to Amazon Prime in October below:
