Truly Scary Anthology

Amazon will debut the six-episode anthology series, Lore, on Friday, October 13, for Prime subscribers.

Lore, which is based on the podcast of the same name, presents “the frightening and often disturbing tales based on real people and events that have led to our modern-day myths and legends.” The show “combines documentary footage, narration, historical mixed media and cinematic scenes to bring to life terrifying, but true stories.”

The series’ cast includes Terminator 2: Judgment Day’s Robert Patrick, True Blood’s Kristin Bauer van Straten, Fargo’s Adam Goldberg, Teen Wolf’s Holland Roden, House of Cards’ Colm Feore and The Amazing Spider-Man’s Campbell Scott.

The podcast, which Aaron Mahnke launched in March 2015, was listed as one of the “15 podcasts you need to hear in 2016” by Entertainment Weekly. Mahnke has also written the first in a three-book series, The World of Lore: Monstrous Creatures, which Del Rey Books will release October 10.

The Amazon series “will feature fan-favorite episodes from the podcast, including the tale 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.”
