Terrifyingly Good TV: Ranking the Best Scary Shows Ever

Spooky season is upon us. Therefore, we wear costumes, carve jack-o-lanterns, tell scary stories, and watch scary films. Sometimes a film or even Halloween, a day full of ghosts, ghouls, and goblins, isn’t enough. Sometimes we need terrifyingly good TV; shows that allow us to immerse ourselves in dim lighting and jump scares for hours, days, weeks, and months on end. Our adrenal glands have more to produce, and oh, does it feel good. From anthologies and small-screen adaptations of horror classics to newer fiction like Stranger Things and The Haunting of Bly Manor, paying homage to all that goes bump in the night, we’ve ranked 14 of the best scary shows ever (docuseries omitted).
