Prime Video has just unleashed a thrilling new addition to its lineup, and it’s already causing a stir with a flawless 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The series, Them: The Scare, is the latest instalment in Prime Video’s anthology show, promising a spine-tingling blend of mystery, horror, and detective drama that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

Intriguingly, the title of the show was shrouded in secrecy until now, adding an extra layer of mystery to the buzz surrounding its release.

This new season transports audiences from the 1950s of the first season- which premiered back in 2021- to the 1990s, immersing viewers in the tumultuous world of Los Angeles during a time of upheaval.

At the heart of the story is Dawn, a determined single mother and cop portrayed by the talented Deborah Ayorinde.

As she delves into a series of baffling murders, Dawn finds herself grappling not only with real-world dangers but also with ominous supernatural forces.

The show's own description reads: “Navigating a tumultuous time in Los Angeles, with a city on the razor’s edge of chaos, Dawn is determined to stop the killer.

“But as she draws closer to the truth, something ominous and malevolent grips her and her family.”

Joined by an ensemble cast including Jeremy Bobb, Pam Grier, Wayne Knight, and singer Luke James, Them: The Scare promises to deliver thrills, chills, and plenty of surprises along the way.

Early reviews are pouring in, and it seems that critics on Rotten Tomatoes are unanimous in their praise for the series.

According to But Why Tho?, the show is: "a terrifying supernatural slasher that moves the anthology to the right track," while Espinof hails it as: "the first great horror series of the year."

Just My Opinion Reviews describes the series as: "a magnificent yet horrid depiction of how trauma is passed down through generations," while Mama’s Geeky declares it: "a deeply unsettling, terrifyingly season that fully embraces the things horror fans love."

With such high praise and a perfect rating, it’s clear that Them: The Scare is set to be a must-watch for fans of mystery, suspense, and spine-chilling storytelling.

So, grab your detective hat and prepare to be captivated by Prime Video’s latest masterpiece.

Both Them and Them: The Scare are streaming on Prime Video in their entirety right now.
