No one likes waking up in the middle of the night—but if you happen to wake up between 3am and 4am, aka the “Devil’s Hour,” beware. Anything could happen…
That’s the creepy premise at the heart of Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming series The Devil’s Hour, which stars Jessica Raine (Carmilla) and Peter Capaldi (The Suicide Squad).
The series follows Lucy (Raine), who is woken every night by terrifying visions at exactly 3.33am: the devil’s hour. Her eight-year-old son is withdrawn and emotionless. Her mother speaks to empty chairs. Her house is haunted by the echoes of a life that isn’t her own.
When Lucy’s name is inexplicably connected to a string of brutal murders in the area, the answers that have evaded her all these years will finally come into focus. Capaldi plays a reclusive nomad, driven by a murderous obsession. He becomes the prime target of a police manhunt led by compassionate detective Ravi Dhillon, played by Nikesh Patel (Starstruck).
Phil Dunster (Dracula) also stars in the six-part series, which was written and created by Tom Moran. Wake up for The Devil’s Hour when it launches on Prime Video sometime later this year.
