Have you ever woken in the middle of the night and felt like something wasn’t quite right?

You may have woken during the ‘Devil’s Hour’ – the hour between 3am and 4am, or 3.33am specifically, regarded as a time when unexplainable things can occur. 

That is the sinister and thrilling premise at the heart of Amazon Prime Video’s The Devil’s Hour.

Bringing together an all-star cast and the creative team behind Sherlock and Dracula, this six-part mind-bending thriller looks set to be a must-watch.

The Devil’s Hour follows the story of Lucy, who is woken at exactly 3.33am every night by terrifying visions.

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.
