There is no doubt we all are big fans of movies, right? It can be said that people are divided into groups based on the genre of movies they like to watch. We can say that some like to watch action films, some like romance, some like comedy, and there are other popular categories like comedy, horror, sci-fi etc.
Well, in this modern world, the new idea of streaming the ideas in the form of serial series instead of filming them has worked wonders. Sites like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar etc have helped these series to come up in the fight with movies. And we all very well like watching these now. And talking about genres, these also come in various genres like movies, with the action-thrillers and horrors being the favorite.
Here are seven really scary and creepy TV series which, in case you have missed, can watch and enjoy –
1. Penny Dreadful
3 seasons, 27 episodes | IMDb: 8.2/10
Believe me; if you are planning to watch this, then you are going to lose your faith on horror fiction films. This one is a really awesome series with some extra-ordinary characters and marvelous plot.
John Logan deserves some appreciation for making a series which had its own characters, but also impressed viewers with the introduction of old and vintage characters like Dracula, Dr. Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyl and many more. And, with such a long and powerful character line-up, you should expect some big jump scares and creepy stuffs happening around you!
2. Black Summer
1 season, 8 episodes | IMDb: 6.3/10
This series is for those who love horror with some undead zombie mixture. Of course you cannot compare this with the vintage Rise of the Dead films, but, as a TV series, this has done some really impressive performance till now.
We can see Jaime King in the lead role as a woman who is separated from her daughter due to some circumstances. And it happened in the middle of a zombie apocalypse! Just imagine! The series is about her quest to find her daughter and teaming up with the living to survive among the dead.
3. The Kirlian Frequency
1 season, 5 episodes | IMDb: 7.6/10
Frankly, I have never seen an animated series so horrifying and impressive. And, this series from Argentina has managed to scare the shit out of people and has some really high jump scares to offer.
The plot revolves around a radio which broadcasts only at night from a small town somewhere deep inside the Buenos Aires province, a town where all kind of scary and paranormal stuffs happen. The story is really good which makes the show worth-watching.
4. American Horror Story
9 seasons, 105 episodes | IMDb: 8.1/10
If you are a person who does not get satisfies with the name horror in a film or series, this series is strongly recommended for you. I do not know if you are going to watch any other horror flicks anymore!
Just like Penny Dreadful, this show has the blend and mixture of some really creepy characters. This has manages to give the viewers new freaks every season with not only common ghosts, but also witches, serial killers, an insane asylum, haunted hotel, creepy show performers and many, many more! And the best thing is, the series also features a clown named Twisty who is enough creepy and horrifying to give our dear Pennywise a clash!
5. R.N Stine’s The Haunting Hour
4 seasons, 76 episodes | IMDb: 8.0/10
Man, you are not a human if you do not know R.L Stine or do not believe in his talent in creating new horror stories every time. Kids, teens and even adults are fans of his famous “Goosebumps” and “Fear Street” collections.
And as always, we cannot determine a single story or plot of this series. All I can tell that each episode has some really spooky and creepy scenes and stories to offer to you for 30 minutes every time. I bet your kids as well as you are going to love this series. A must watch for sure!
4 seasons, 74 episodes | IMDb: 7.0/10
I could not stop myself from adding another R.L Stine creation in this list. And when the case is about Goosebumps, I bet no one would disagree with me.
The Goosebumps book series of R.L Stine are known to almost everyone around this world everywhere. My personal favorite as well! And this series is all but based on the books. Each episode is of 29 minutes and has the mixture of ghosts, witches, zombies, giants and many more.
7. Stranger Things
4 episodes, 33 episodes | IMDb: 8.8/10
I forgot to tell about a very famous genre, Sci-fi! There are many things which we love about sci-fi, the flying objects, the scientific actions and all that.
So, what will happen when sci-fi mixes with horror? A terrifically awesome TV series by the name Stranger Things comes! There are many things which makes Stranger things a must watch. The plot is about a child who goes missing in a society full of dark agencies and supernatural powers. And very soon the people come to know about the dark forces working and it is on you to find out how they deal with these and find the missing child. I strongly recommend watching this!
