There’s a new movie on Amazon Prime Video’s Top 10 list today, and it’s a bit of a surprise. Not because it’s not good (it’s actually well-received by the horror community), but because it wasn’t supposed to be out until tomorrow. At least that’s what Prime Video told us. Torn Hearts stars Katey Sagal as a country music legend who takes in two up-and-coming aspiring musicians looking for their big break. Instead, they get violent and bloody mind games from a scorned woman. Frightening! We should see some changes to the list over the next few days with Chloë Grace Moretz’s sci-fi series The Peripheral and Season 10 of American Horror Story coming soon.

The most popular new movies and shows on Prime Video are below, but we’ll also chime in on whether or not they’re worth watching. Just because something is popular, that doesn’t mean it’s good, right? And to help you plan what you’ll watch next, we’ve added the new shows and movies coming to Prime Video, too.
