The Top Ten
1 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 ...read more.

The Twilight Zone is the standard with with all television horror must be judged against.
It was filled with cautionary tales, and frightening situations.

Before A clown with a balloon, A guy with a saw and An animatronic bear, there was a narrator, that started the horror genre.

Not really that scary, but a masterpiece that gets better with age.

My favorite show ever

2 The X-Files The X-Files is an American science fiction drama television series created by Chris Carter. The original television series aired from September 10, 1993, to May 19, 2002, on Fox.

Its just so good and can be one of the scariest things on T.V. I love it to bits better than buffy supernatural the walking dead and all that

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.

Such an iconic terrifying T.V. show not to mention extremely disturbing,love it

3 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."

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!

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.

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

4 Masters of Horror
5 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´┐Żbut it still scared the hell out of us here at T.V. jab when we were but wee lads.

6 Tales from the Crypt
7 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.

If you haven't seen this show as a kid, you ask why it's on the list.

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

8 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.

9 Goosebumps Goosebumps is a Canadian-American horror anthology television series based on R. L. Stine's best-selling Goosebumps book series.
