1 American Horror Story American Horror Story is an American anthology horror television series created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Each season is conceived as a self-contained miniseries, following a different set of characters and settings, and a storyline with its own "beginning, middle, and end."

It’s really not that scary when somebody stabs somebody else, which is basically the whole show

This is one of my favorite shows of all time and I'm 12 years old. asylum is the creepiest but twisty from freak show is one of the creepiest T.V. characters of all time.

This show is unique, original, unpredictable and DISTURBING AS HELL!

Ok, so Murder House was just good, nothing else, but Asylum & Coven have proven that AHS is a show that can shock even the most tame viewers. Asylum truly showed the show's potential off in a fantastically grim and unsettling manner, while Coven has brought back some of the sanity of Murder House while introducing us to some truly interesting characters with some horrible pasts. Amazing!

2 The Twilight Zone The Twilight Zone is an American anthology television series created and presented by Rod Serling, which ran for five seasons on CBS from 1959 to 1964. Each episode presents a stand-alone story in which characters find themselves dealing with often disturbing or unusual events, an experience described more.

4 Masters of Horror
5 Courage the Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog is an American animated horror comedy television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network as part of the network's Cartoon Cartoons block.

6 Are You Afraid of the Dark? Are You Afraid of the Dark? is a Canadian horror fantasy-themed anthology television series that was on YTV.

It was a show that first ran on Nickelodeon on Saturday nights. It was an anthology show that featured kids telling campfire tales as a framework for short scary stories. It was very much in the vein of Tales from the Crypt or the Twilight Zone, with a 90s, kid friendly spin�but it still scared the hell out of us here at T.V. jab when we were but wee lads. - Alexandr
