What’s Coming to Amazon in October 2019

October, the spookiest month of the year, is here and Amazon has updated its slate of movie and television offerings accordingly. “The Babadook,” the indie Australian movie that’s the stuff of nightmares, will be available to stream on Oct. 14. HBO’s continuation of Alan Moore’s macabre meditation on superheroes, “Watchmen,” premieres on Oct. 20.

For the horror averse, the streamer has got you covered, too. Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi adventure “A.I.,” the inspirational Gene Hackman college hoops movie “Hoosiers” and the Jodie Foster court drama “The Accused” all drop on the first of the month. Then, just two days later on Oct. 3, check out Robert Pattinson’s art-house space odyssey “High Life.” Amazon will also debut the series “Modern Love,” based on the New York Times column, on Oct. 18. The anthology stars Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, Cristin Milioti and Dev Patel.

Indeed, there may be a little more content [...]
