Friday the 13th Launch for Lore

On Friday, October 13, Amazon Prime Video will premiere globally, presumably in 4K, the supernatural anthology series Lore.

It combines documentary footage, narration, historical mixed media and cinematic scenes to explore the real-life tales behind pop culture’s most legendary horror myths, such as vampires, changelings, werewolves, séances and possessed dolls.

The six-episode series is based on the podcast of the same name that averages five million monthly listens.

It was named “Best of” in 2015 and 2016 by Apple, and was listed as one of the “15 podcasts you need to hear in 2016” by Entertainment Weekly; the first book in Mahnke’s three-book series, The World of Lore, will be published on October 10.

The series will feature fan-favourite episodes from the podcast, including tales of:

  • a boy given a doll that seems to have a sinister life of its own;
  • a family whose home appears to be inhabited by a spirit from the other side; and
  • a German village that hunts for a murderous creature.

Lore’s cast includes Robert Patrick, Kristin Bauer van Straten (True Blood), Adam Goldberg (Fargo), Holland Roden (Teen Wolf), Colm Feore (House of Cards) and Campbell Scott (The Amazing Spider-Man).

Lore is a unique hybrid series that presents meticulously-researched true life tales through a variety of mediums, in order to surprise and delight, and even unsettle,” Conrad Riggs, Head of Unscripted, Amazon Originals, says.
