Whether it's over-the-hill superheroes or madcap ghosts, these are the best offerings from Amazon right now.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

The legendary graphic novel from comics icon Frank Miller comes to the screen in this two-part animated series. It sees billionaire Bruce Wayne hanging up his Batman cape following the death of his protege Jason Todd. However, years later, a crime spree by a gang called the Mutants brings Batty out of retirement. But is the 55-year-old over the hill?


Michael Keaton's turn as the ghost with the most has aged very well, even if the effects haven't. A recently deceased young couple (Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin) haunt their former home in the hope of scaring away the new inhabitants. When they fail, they call on Beetlejuice, an obnoxious, devious ghost. Madcap adventures ensue.

Hand of God

An Amazon Original Series, 'Hand of God' sees Ron Pearlman play Pernell Harris, a judge found naked, speaking in tongues in the middle of a public fountain. He starts experiencing hallucinations – is he having a breakdown, or receiving messages from god? To top it all, his son is in a coma from shooting himself after being forced at gunpoint to watch his wife being raped.
