2 The X Files

The truth is out there´┐Żand it just might scare the hell out of you. The X-Files did a great job of being a mystery and a fantastically scary show. - Alexandr

3 American Horror Story

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!

4 Masters of Horror
5 Tales from the Crypt

Often funny, entertaining, and sometimes truly frightening - Alexandr

6 Are You Afraid of the Dark?

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´┐Żbut it still scared the hell out of us here at T.V. jab when we were but wee lads. - Alexandr

7 Courage the Cowardly Dog 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.

This is a kid's cartoon why is it on the list!?

9 Millennium

Millennium followed a police consultant, Frank Black, with the skill of peering into a criminal's mind. The first season revolved around the pursuit of serial killers, but Season Two opened the scope up and introduced demonic forces into the mix. - Alexandr
