Amazon this week plans to add nine new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup, including two originals.
The new title list will include season two of Lore (pictured above), the Amazon original horror anthology series featuring (alleged) real-life tales of mayhem. Season one of Lore, which was spawned from a podcast by Aaron Mahnke, drew mixed reviews from the critics, capturing a score of 65 out of a possible 100 at RottenTomatoes.com.
“Lore almost plays like an educational program – and that’s what makes it so terrifying,” wrote The Decider’s Jade Budowski.
“Such effective audio storytelling already left its mark on the podcast world, and the Amazon adaptation doesn’t elevate things at all. If anything, it’s less effective because you can’t watch it in your car or while out for a jog,” countered Ben Travers of IndieWire.
Below is the complete list of new titles coming this week to Amazon Prime. (Note: Amazon on Friday, October 19, will also add episode three of The Romanoffs, the new anthology series from Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner.)
