What’s Worth Streaming: Here’s what’s new to Amazon Prime Video in October 2021


Amazon Prime Video is leaning into the Halloween theme in October, with a slate of horror movies, old and new, and the reboot of a cult-classic slasher film.

That would be “I Know What You Did Last Summer” (Oct. 15), a new series based on Lois Duncan’s 1973 novel that inspired the 1997 movie and its sequels. Featuring a cast of mostly newcomers — including Madison Iseman, Bill Heck, Brianne Tju and Ezekiel Goodman — the eight-episode series focuses on a group of teenage friends bound by a guilty secret and hunted by a serial killer. The first four episodes will drop on the 15th, with the remaining four every subsequent Friday.


also has four original Blumhouse horror movies, with “Bingo Hell” and “Black as Night” dropping Oct. 1, and “The Manor” and “Madres” coming Oct. 8. Those are part of Prime Video’s “Now Screaming” collection, which also includes frightening films such as “Midsommar,” “The Thing,” “House on Haunted Hill” and “Arachnophobia.”

On the non-Halloween front, there’s a new installment of the popular inside-the locker-room sports docuseries franchise, “All or Nothing: Toronto Maple Leafs” (Oct. 1), the social-justice documentary “My Name Is Pauli Murray” (Oct. 1), the concert movie “Justin Bieber: Our World” (Oct. 8), and “Fairfax” (date TBA), an adult animated series from the studio behind Netflix’s “Big Mouth” about four middle-school best friends.

“Thursday Night Football” is returning, starting Oct. 7, as the Seattle Seahawks host the Los Angeles Rams. Amazon will have 11 Thursday-night NFL games this season, all starting at 8:20 p.m. Eastern.

Amazon’s free IMDb channel also has the eight-episode fall season of “Leverage: Redemption” (Oct. 8), the con-man series that was revived over the summer.

Here’s the full list of what’s on the way, as of Sept. 27 (release dates are subject to change):
