I love a scary story, especially if it’s true. Amazon’s Lore is coming back with six new chilling tales just in time for Halloween. Amazon released the season two story synopsis for each of the episodes. Lore season two will premiere in October on the streaming service.
Lore is based on a podcast of the same name, produced and narrated by Aaron Mahnke. Mahnke tells the absolute true stories of strange occurrences behind some of the best known myths, legends, and fairy tales. Season two features stories that haven’t been heard on the podcast.
At San Diego Comic Con, Producer Gale Ann Hurd said, “We have an expanded scope, and a new showrunner in Sean Crouch, who comes to us from the widely acclaimed Exorcist, the adaptation on Fox.” Hurd added that unlike season one, season two’s episodes will focus on one story instead of multiple.
Here is the list of episodes with descriptions, courtesy of Collider.com
“Burke and Hare: In the Name of Science”
Two shunned Irish immigrants in Scotland start off as grave robbers to sell the dead to doctors, but decide that creating their own inventory is much easier, and become the most prolific mass-murdering duo in history. Stars Emmet Byrne, Emmett J. Scanlan and Doug Bradley.
“Elizabeth Bathory: Mirror, Mirror”
The aging Countess of Blood, running out of virginal peasants to drain of their youthful essence, brings in a bright-eyed noble to start a new cycle of torture and murder. Stars Maimie McCoy, Rosalind Eleazar and Ella Hunt.
“Hinterkaifeck: Ghosts in the Attic”
In the German hinterlands, between world wars, a family goes to bed, not knowing that their killer has been living in the walls and attics of their home like a ghost, watching, waiting for his chance to strike, in one of the most famous unsolved mysteries of all time. Stars Jürgen Prochnow, Thomas Kretschmann and Susanne Wuest.
“Prague Clock: The Curse of the Orloj”
As two clockmakers race against the curse of the Orloj, a curse that has already driven the city of Prague to madness and death with the Black Plague, these brothers will discover the price of trying to change history. Stars Steven Berkoff, Numan Acar and Elie Haddad.
“Mary Webster: The Witch of Hadley”
A young woman, raised in a town controlled by a religious zealot, must rectify a fatal mistake before a ravenous mob hangs the Old Witch, Mary Webster, in this story set just 11 years before and 100 miles from Salem, Massachusetts. Stars Paula Malcomson, Hebe Beardsall and Paul Rhys.
“Jack Parsons: The Devil and the Divine”
In 1922 only one person, Jack Parsons, believed that we could send a rocket into space and conjure a demon. By 1952 he had done both. But all he cared about was the Scarlet Woman he had both summoned, and lost, Marjorie Cameron. Stars Josh Bowman and Alicia Witt.
In case you missed it the first time, here is the season 2 trailer.
