I love watching TV and I love spooky season so for this
article I am combining the two and bringing you a list of
shows I think are perfect to watch this October! I have
featured shows from three of the top streaming
sites, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon, so hopefully there are
shows on here that everyone can watch. Enjoy!
American Horror Story
You cannot have a horror tv show list without mentioning
the king of them all, American Horror Story. This
series ventures where no series dares to go and is
definitely not for those who are easily scared or
have a weak stomach. Each season is a different
storyline so you don’t have to watch the seasons in
order to understand what is happening and with
10 seasons that might just be a good thing. In my
personal opinion the best seasons are Murder House and Asylum.
Evil (Season 2 on Hulu)
I will admit there were moments in the show that made
me go “really?” (mainly when it came to the demons), but
even with those moments this show was very entertaining
and it was easy for me to watch episode after episode.
Oh the cliffhanger at the end of season 1?! So good!
This is one of my all time favorite shows. It probably
won’t give you any nightmares (although I will say that
my brother used to not want to watch the earlier seasons
at night…don’t tell him I told you that. lol), but it will definitely
hold your attention and I guarantee there will be some
laughs. Still not sure? Take a look at the 4 main characters
of the show, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Alexander
Calvert, and my man Jensen Ackles and I guarantee you
will be sprinting to watch this show as soon as possible. *swoon*
The Haunting at Bly Manor
I was skeptical that I would like this show since it came
from the same producers as The Haunting of Hill
House (which I wasn’t all that impressed with). However, after
the first episode I was hooked and I sat and binged
it like no one’s business. (This show is more of a love story
than a ghost story, but still has some spooky aspects so I included it.)
“I believe in love at first sight” because that is exactly what
happened with this TV show. From the first few minutes
of episode one I was hooked and I haven’t looked back
since…well….maybe just to make sure Joe isn’t behind
me. Lol I really really want to read the book this series is
based on (even though I have heard some very mixed
reviews about it) and I cannot WAIT until season 3 is out.
I’m not going to sugarcoat it….this show is weird. Very
Stephen King-esque, but for the life of me I couldn’t stop
watching. I had to find out what was going to happen next
even though the whole time I was thinking “this is weird, this is weird.” lol
What would a spooky season TV list be without Stranger
Things? Incomplete that’s what! Lol This show blew
up, but after watching it myself it comes as no surprise.
It’s not predictable and has a LOT of great suspense. I will
say that I am not super obsessed with this show as
many others are, but I am ready for season 4. #bringbackhopper
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
I started watching this show because I thought it was
going to act like a remake of the show Sabrina the
Teenage Witch that I watched while I was a kid.
In a way it was, but definitely nothing like I was expecting.
Sabrina still had her two aunts that she lived with and her
black cat Salem and was in fact a young witch in high
school, but that is about where the similarities end and
this show goes on to take a much darker turn. It is
creepy, entertaining, and at times it will make you want
to sit and say some prayers while watching.
Two Sentence Horror Stories
I had no idea what to expect from this show, but I was
definitely left pleasantly surprised. The episodes of this
show are super short and each one follows its own storyline
so you don’t have to watch them in order. (It kind of gives me Black Mirror vibes.)
They might not all be scary, but they are definitely creepy.
I used to read the Goosebumbs books allll the stinking
time growing up. In fact, anytime we were in the car or didn’t
have a lot going on mom would have me sit and read aloud to
her and my brother. Good creepy stories for all ages.
Fear the Walking Dead
If you are a fan of The Walking Dead then this is a
show for you. It doesn’t feature any of the same characters
from that show, but it does have very very similar vibes in
the slow manner the show progresses through its storyline, but
the action scenes and drama make up for it in my opinion.
This show is based on various Stephen King works so you
can bet that it is a little on the weird side. However, once
you accept that this show is actually pretty dang good.
It has a nice air of mystery and some good thrilling aspects
although I do have to admit there were some times
throughout it I was very confused so be sure to pay
close attention when you watch it!
MTV might not play much music anymore, but a lot
of their TV shows, such as this one, are just fantastic.
I love this show and have from the first moment. What can
I say…I’m a sucker for a good teen drama! Lol It’s
entertaining, has a lot of great twists to keep you guessing, and
I might even go as far to say that it is better than other
comparable teen dramas like The Vampire Diaries. Trust
me, watch this show. You won’t regret it.
Say what you want about Zak Bagans and his crew, but
I have always found their show Ghost Adventures
to be super entertaining. The over the top dramatizations
and reactions give the show a small bit of comedic
relief (probably unintentional, but just my thoughts lol) while
still showcasing some scary haunted locations.
Buzzfeed Unsolved: Supernatural
I watched Buzzfeed Unsolved paranormal on Youtube
and fell in love with Shane and Ryan. They are so
extremely entertaining to watch and absolutely hilarious.
I love how you have both sides of the believer spectrum
with Ryan being a huge believer in all things paranormal
and Shane a huge skeptic. Watching Ryan’s face as Shane
calls out to the ghosts and demons asking them to do their
worst has me roaring with laughter. Very happy to see that
you can now watch them on Hulu as well. Proud of my boys!
Ridiculous? Oh insanely, but I also found it to be extremely entertaining.
Light As a Feather
This is a recent find for me, but it definitely has me in its clutches. I
never played light as a feather, stiff as a board before, but you
can guarantee that I won’t be playing it now! Definitely some
weird aspects about the show involving one of the main
characters, but this is a fantastic teen drama.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I am going to be honest with y’all…I have never seen
Buffy the Vampire Slayer. However, I feel like I have as
much as I have heard others talk about this show so that
is why I put it on the list. It is an iconic and well known show
and I am definitely going to be watching it this spooky season.
This was the first ghost hunting show I ever watched
and to this day it remains my absolute favorite. I love
Jason and Grant and think they are very genuine, down
to earth guys that you could just sit and chill with.
This show is like CSI meets Once Upon a Time. A crime
drama meets fantasy. This show is very entertaining with
not much repetitiveness and it reminds me a little of
Supernatural (which as I mentioned before is one of my all time
favorite shows). I think the Brothers Grimm would be happy with how this show.
What are some of your TV recommendations for spooky season?
