Amazon Video released a New York Comic Con sneak peek at their upcoming series Lore, which will premiere all six episodes on Friday, October 13 on Prime Video. The video is from the episode “Unboxed,” about a doll that comes to life. The show is based on the popular podcast of the same name. You can check out the video in the player below.

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.

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.

The show is executive produced by 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). Lore is produced by Propagate Content and Valhalla Entertainment. Mahnke is co-executive producer.
