What’s New to Stream on Amazon Prime for October 2019

There may not be a lot hitting the service this month, but at least we’re getting a new Nicolas Cage film.
High Life

Amazon Prime is the only streaming service with a cost that also gets you free shipping, and that my friends is a deal. They’re in the Original programming game, but their biggest offering remains the ton of films available to watch anytime for Prime members.

The complete list of titles hitting Amazon Prime this month — October 2019 — is below, but first I’m going to shower some affection and point some eyeballs towards a few specific titles.

Amazon Prime Pick of the Month

The picking are uncharacteristically slim for Amazon Prime this month, but even if the selection was bigger there’s a good chance Claire Denis’ High Life (2018) would have still landed the coveted top spot here. I still haven’t seen it, but two of our best here at Film School Rejects — Meg Shields and Anna Swanson — are very vocal fans. The film stars Robert Pattinson as an astronaut juggling fatherhood, a toxic work environment, and ropey strands of gravity-defying semen. Again, I haven’t seen it yet, but that’s the impression in my head for some reason.

Surprise! A New Nicolas Cage

Kill Chain

October 18th brings the premiere of a film called Kill Chain which I know nothing about aside from it being a thriller about three strangers caught up in some shenanigans. Oh, and it stars Nicolas Cage who will either be great here or simply collecting a paycheck — there is no middle ground for him. Oh, and it’s written and directed by Ken Sanzel whose previous film, Blunt Force Trauma (2015), is a nifty little thriller that none of you bothered to see. All of this combined is more than enough reason to watch. Probably.
