Everyone likes a good scare. There is an excitement in horror, something that keeps you on the edge of your seat, something that makes you wary of the shadows. Every year, there come a bunch of horror movies that try to scare the audience. But, true horror isn’t instantaneous. You can’t really wrap it up in a 3-hour long film and expect it to leave an after-effect for months. No sir, a day or two and the effect wears off. And this is where TV shows come in. Just as a ghost, or a spirit, takes its time to bring people under its influence, TV shows take their time to build up the mystery while we wait for the impending doom. Unlike movies, TV shows span over months, and keep their hold on the viewer for a considerable amount of time, leaving a deeper impression.
If you are one of those people who like sharing ghost stories over a bonfire, or watch ‘The Conjuring’ in the middle of the night, alone; here’s the list of top horror TV shows ever made.
17. Amazing Stories (1985-1987)
Created by Steven Spielberg, this is an anthology series with one story covered in one episode. Almost every story has been written by Spielberg, who also directed some of the episodes. Directors like Burt Reynolds, Martin Scorsese and Clint Eastwood, to name a few, have directed the episodes. The stories range from ghost stories to science fiction, with some touched with comic relief. If there is one thing you’ll take away from each episode, it is an odd feeling in the pit of your stomach.
