I love anthology tv shows! When you don't have time to watch a film they're absolutely perfect as they're usually 45 minutes to an hour long.

My favourites (as well as The Twilight Zone obviously!) include Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Tales from the Crypt, Masters of Horror, Hammer House of Horror and The Outer Limits. Also used to enjoy Are You Afraid of the Dark when I was younger too.

Freddy's Nightmares was cheesy but fun as well. There was also a Friday the 13th anthology show set around an antiques store which is currently on Sky's Horror Channel but I've never caught any of those.


I've never seen The Night Gallery or Tales from the Darkside though but have heard they're ok.

Does the Friday The 13th TV show feature Jason, PaulD? Whenever I catch it on the Horror Channel, I just get really bored and end up turning it off

Nah, it's got nothing to do with him, it just uses the brand and logo really. At least Freddy's Nightmares had Freddy Kreuger in it at the beginning and end (and even featured the story of his origin in the first episode)

Ah right! Thanks for the heads-up, Paul. It looked rather dull when I watched a little bit of it.

Goosebumps and Are You Afraid Of The Dark? needs to be back on TV!

My personal favourite can be found at the bottom of my post, the one and only Kolchak, cheesier than a Dairylea and Cathedral City sandwich, and all the more better for it!

Edit: Just seen the poll at the top, no Kolchak

I didn't know that was an anthology show? I always assumed it was some sort of detective/thriller/mystery type thing. Will give it an investigation shortly.

Sorry Rik, the poll options were quickly from the top of my head. Can't believe I missed out Tales Of The Unexpected too
