Lore Is A New Horror Show That Will Expose Our Worst Nightmares

Most of us are probably still checking every drainpipe we walk past for a red balloon in fear of Pennywise the clown lurking underneath.

Stephen King's It was released in cinemas last week and since then there has probably been a distinct rise in coulrophobia (a fear of clowns).

But, just when you thought it was safe to sleep, the stuff of your worst nightmares is coming to a TV screen near you.

We often see 'based on true events' at the start of horror films, but in some cases the fact is more terrifying than the fiction.


Lore is an award-winning, critically-acclaimed podcast that talks about true life scary stories and it's created by Aaron Mahnke.

Its description reads: "Our fears have roots. Lore exposes the darker sides of history, exploring the creatures, people and places of our wildest nightmares."


It's so popular, with its six million monthly listens, it has now been turned into a television series for Amazon.

The show will blend together some dramatic scenes, animation, archive footage, narration and a documentary aesthetic to get behind our beloved horror legends.

Just how true are stories of vampires, werewolves and body snatchers?

Each episode will feature 'meticulously-researched true-life tales that are told through a variety of mediums, in order to surprise and delight, and even unsettle.

Such examples include the demonic doll, 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.

The show has come from the executive producer of The Walking Dead and the X-Files.

Typically, there could only be one launch date for this sort of show, so it's being made available to Amazon Prime Video members on Friday, October 13.

Meanwhile, If It didn't really scare you, and you need something to fill the void over the next month or so, there's a new clown film that is meant to be next-level on horror.


Crepitus is based on the title character who is a clown that likes to kill and eat children. He marks out the ones he wants to kill by putting an X on their forehead.

The film follows a 17-year-old girl, Elizabeth, and her younger sister, Sam, who find themselves picked out by Crepitus as his next victims and they have to battle the evil fucker in an attempt to survive.
