    Truth Seekers apparently got the axe.
    Bummer.
    I rather enjoyed S1 and woulda been cool with a second season.
    Oh well.
    A bit surprising considering that Amazon has a bit of a rep for rescuing series that have been cancelled elsewhere, too.

    Some solid "arthouse"/indie horror flicks have popped up on Prime recently.

    For example:

    YOU'RE NEXT
    A wicked genre mash-up of the family reunion comedy and the home invasion thriller.
    Snappy dialogue, engaging characters, great pacing, and some solid practical gore make for a whiz-bang ride.
    The next-to-last great film from director/screenwriting duo Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett (The Guest).

    THE SIGNAL
    This is like a Twilight Zone/Outer Limits episode on meth.

    ONLY GOD FORGIVES
    I took some minor slagging for digging this flick back when it was in theaters (https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...s-thread/page3), but it is a slick and engaging neon noir that I thoroughly enjoyed.

    It will help a bit if you dig or have seen any Alejandro Jodorowsky and Gaspar Noe films...

    Lately I have been vibing on the films of Fiona Gordon and Dominique Abel and Bruno Romy (A French bloke who co-directed the first 3 films)
    They are a Belgian based duo who make whimsical, absurdist comedies that are heavily influenced by Wes Anderson by way of Peter Sellers (Pink Panther series) by way of Jacques Tati by way of Charlie Chaplin.

    While I heartedly recommend their earlier films, L'Iceberg and Rumba, neither are on Prime.

    However, their most recent film (2016) is on Prime.

    LOST IN PARIS is a light hearted romp that takes the piss out of tourists, pays tribute to loveable scamps, and features a ton of wonderfully sublime callbacks/internal allusions.

    ROBOT JOX
    Hankering for some solid B-movie sci-fi action?
    This "lost", late '80s gem just popped up on Prime.
    Directed by Stuart Gordon (Re-animator) it features some great stop motion FX that hold up surprisingly well these 30-odd years later.
    Sure, the characters are delivered in broad, stereotypical strokes, the villain is readily apparent from the get-go, but it is a fun romp.
    It is also pretty much the blueprint for Pacific Rim.
