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!…

If your mother was the one who brought you into this world and takes care of you however big you are, your father is the man who makes you capable of living in this huge world. He is the man who silently has your back and protects you from all hurdles of life.
So when it is the occasion of father’s day, it is your duty to give him some gift to make him happy. Always remember that the gift should be something that he can use often and it is not necessary that it is an expensive one! Here are some ideas on what you should gift your father on his day –
I am sure your dad is a person who loves drinking tea or coffee in the morning while reading newspaper, right? Every person does so. So why not giving a beautiful coffee mug which can always remind him of you? The best idea would be to gift him a custom made coffee mug. Custom made coffee mug is where you can use your own ideas and make him something with any father’s day quotes or his picture with you on it.
SHIRT AND PANT
A really beautiful and cheap but beautiful gift for your dad would be a pair of garments. Now it depends upon you what type of dress you want to give him. It could be a nice and stylish sleeved shirt along with some formal pants or jeans or anything else. You could give him something he likes to wear or something you want him to try for the first time. Be sure before buying!
MOBILE OR LAPTOP
Technology related stuffs are something which people of all ages love to keep with them. May it be phones or laptops or computers or whatever, but these always make a forever precious gift item.
So, if your dad is a tech freak and loves using techies, then the best items to gift him would be a mobile phone or a laptop. You can provide him with an upgrade to a phone he is using, or if he is an office worker, a personal laptop would work wonders. You can also think of items like an iPod or iPad or anything like that as well!
If your father is a music lover, you can consider giving him a good pair of headphones. And if he is a kind of a gamer and loves playing games, then gaming headphones would be great. Again you have to know what kind of songs your father loves; if he loves soothing and pleasant music, and then you can go for simple headgears. Or if he loves rock and heavy metal songs, you can go for the ones with heavy bass. And in this modern era, the Bluetooth headphones would be a better choice. Be updated!
First it was the case of garments. So, when you can give your father some nice shirt and pant, why not go for a nice pair of shoes? A pair of some really good quality and stylish shoes would be a really nice one as a gift. If your father has some nice clothing and is missing the shoes, imagine how happy he would be seeing a pair of Woodland!
BOOKS OR DIARIES
Books are men’s best companions during boredom, right? And your father can be one of those who like reading books. In such a case, some really good books can be a nice present. If he likes reading novels, you can gift him some kind of biographies or fiction stories, or you can give him small fiction storybooks if he is a part-timer. You can gift him some really marvelous and stylish diaries if he is a writer. Or you can buy him some subscriptions on book sites like Pinterest.
POWER BANK OR MULTI-CHARGER
Imagine your father is on trip and he has forgotten his charger. Then that would be a really tough situation. That is where a power bank would be helpful. So, if you can, then go for a power bank with more battery capacity. That would be a great present.
If your father is a businessman and has regular visits to foreign countries, then he will surely be stuck with his charger, which is different in different countries. For such situations, a multi-charger or a charging adapter would be great and handy as well. Think of it!
Perfumes are something which are almost everyone’s favorite. Be it any function or party or any type of occasion, we use our perfume or cologne sprays all over our bodies. Yeah it may the girls’ favorite, but boys also like it a lot.
So coming to perfume as a gift, do not go for regular perfumes. For once, go off the road and try gifting some kind of classic ones, like you can go for Georgio Armani, Clive Christian or Annick Goutal or something like those. Your father is surely going to like that!
Every person has his own kind of shaving style and they love it. And your dad must have his own style as well. And you can make sure that his shaving goes without any problem. You can gift him a complete pack of all shaving items, and believe me, he will like it.
WATCH OR SUNGLASSES
Make sure that your father can very well maintain his style and bass. You can gift him a nice watch which should suit his style or you can go for some nice shades of goggles. All these will surely help in improving his style!
A very cheap but worth having gift will be some kind of subscriptions (of course not of You-Tube!). You can gift your father any kind of e-news subscription to upgrade his news reading. Or if your father likes watching online series streams, you can gift him Netflix or Amazon Prime or Hotstar subscriptions or something of that kind.…
