Tired of Michael Myers? Try scary television

Halloween is approaching in three weeks, and with the weather outside finally feeling appropriately fall-y, we’re getting into the spirit! Normally at this point we would tell you about the scary movies in our collection that you can find through our Pinterest page, but we want to take a second to look at the less-examined side of the horror coin: scary television.

Though film may have all the iconic characters (Norman Bates, Jason, et al.), television has a rich history of scaring the bejesus out of us. Even when the shows aren’t especially scary, horror motifs and supernatural elements like ghouls, vampires, and werewolves have a home on the small screen among such classics as The Twilight Zone and Tales from the Crypt.

With that in mind, here are a few television shows from our collection that fit the horror mold or are at least appropriate for Halloween. See you in 22 days!
