Question TV's Best Horror Shows

Hi everyone,


Lately, it seems like every week a new horror film is being turned into a TV show with Scream being the latest addition (along with The Evil Dead)

So, here's a thread dedicated to the very best horror shows on TV. Which ones have a special place in your bloody horror-hound heart?


Whether it's an old anthology show from the 50s like The Twilight Zone, or a show based on a movie such as Freddy's Nightmares, a show that scared you as a kid or even a 'factual' programme, let us know some of your favourites below.


Are you looking forward to the Scream & Evil Dead TV shows? Personally, I CANNOT wait for the Evil Dead show. Scream... eh... not so much.

It was the series releases of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and spin off series Angel that got me into watching tv box sets when they were first released so they will always stay close to me.

I love the old 'Are you afraid of the dark' seasons. I did watch a few goosebumps episodes but it was the Friday the 13th tv show that i most looked forward to watching.... I managed to get a copy of the VHS and man i was not prepared for the crapstorm i was about to swim into... haha.

I actually really did enjoy SCREAM when it came out so i will give the TV show a go.

I need to buy the complete sets of both those shows as I thought they were brilliant when I watched them on Sky.

The Twilight Zone has strong horror elements to some episodes so probably counts, but I guess my all-time favourite would be True Blood, followed closely by The Walking Dead. I've really enjoyed what I've seen of Bates Motel, and the first season of American Horror Story was excellent, which made it such a shame that the second and third series were so disappointed.

Actually, would Twin Peaks count? Like The Twilight Zone, some of the episodes are quite strong in horror content.

Eerie Indiana, Round the Twist had its moments.

Of course I like all the old stuff, The Twilight Zone, Thriller, Hammer House of Horror, Beasts, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Outer Limits, One Step Beyond, Mystery and Imagination, Murder Most Horrid, Tales of the Unexpected...
