New To Amazon Prime Video In November 2018: TV Shows And Movies (US)

Weird Science. It's like Frankenstein for nerds.


November is here, and Amazon Prime Video will have new options for its subscribers to watch in the way of movies, TV shows, and original series for the new month. Additionally, Amazon is also offering NFL games, streaming live on Thursday nights.

Easily the best movie to arrive on Amazon on November 1 is the 1985 classic Weird Science. In the John Hughes film, a couple of high school nerds use computer technology to create what they think is the perfect woman. Somehow, their creation comes to life, but she ends up making them better and more confident people. While the technology in the movie may not speak well to a younger, contemporary audience, the themes of fitting in and being cool still hold true today.

Now Playing: Best New Amazon Prime Video Releases: Movies And TV Shows To Watch In November 2018

Speaking of coming-of-age movies, the 1991 feature My Girl also launched on Amazon on November 1. Anna Chlumsky plays Vada, a young girl who is about to become a teenager and living with her widowed mortician father. She learns a bit about life and relationships with her friend Thomas, played by Macaulay Culkin. Sure, it's more of a family drama, but there are still some fun, comedic moments that make this a classic flick.

If horror is your thing, there are a few solid choices for November. Candyman: Day of the Dead, Hostel, and Child's Play are all out now on Amazon.
