Peter Capaldi, The Devil’s Hour

Henry James/Prime Video

Happy Amazween! (The portmanteau works better with Hulu, honestly.) If you’re looking for a good scary movie to watch on Amazon Prime Video, we have a great list of appropriately frightening flicks. But if you’re just in the mood for something good to watch, a great place to start is with the most popular movies and shows. There are two new entries on the list that can double as good Halloween watches: The Devil’s Houra supernatural thriller series starring Peter Capaldi as a mysterious weirdo, and Run Sweetheart Runa terrifying romp starring Game Of Thrones‘ Pilou Asbæk as an unstoppable monster (or maybe just a jerk).

The most popular new movies and shows on Prime Video are below, but we’ll also chime in on whether or not they’re worth watching. Just because something is popular, that doesn’t mean it’s good, right? And to help you plan what you’ll watch next, we’ve added the new shows and movies coming to Prime Video, too.
