Trailer for Amazon’s True Story “Lore” Series

Here’s the official trailer for Amazon’s “Lore”, premiering Friday, October 13 on Prime Video.

Based on the popular podcast of the same name, which has an average of five million monthly listens, the anthology series presents the frightening and often disturbing tales based on real people and events that have led to our modern-day myths and legends.

“Lore”, featuring Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day), 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), combines documentary footage, narration, historical mixed media and cinematic scenes to bring to life terrifying, but true stories. Celebrating the origins of the horror genre, “Lore” explores the real-life tales behind pop culture’s most legendary horror myths, such as vampires, changelings, werewolves, séances and possessed dolls.

Launched in March 2015 by Aaron Mahnke, the podcast “Lore” has generated a massive audience, 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 by Del Rey Books.

All six episodes of the series, from Executive Producers Ben Silverman (The Office), Howard T. Owens (The Biggest Loser), Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead), Brett-Patrick Jenkins (Face Off), Glen Morgan (X-Files), Jon Halperin and Mark Mannucci (A Year in Space), will be available to Prime members globally on October 13.

“Lore” 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.

    Interesting that they’re going hard at marketing this as scary/horror. While there’s the occasional episode of Lore like that, I don’t really describe the show as a whole along those lines. Should be interesting I guess, if not that different from similar type shows on history or discovery channels where they go through “weird” or unique history.

    I’m curious if Aaron is actually narrating it, as they include his episode intro in the preview. His voice nearly puts me to sleep when I listen. I mean that in a good way. Very soothing.
