Title: Scariest TV Shows of all time

 What are the  Scariest TV Shows of all time in your opinion ?

There are many lists on the web for scariest movies but I think the TV shows is more tricky because many of those shows have been forgotten.

Some of my favorites

Dark Shadows
Night Gallery
Alfred Hitchcock

Compared to todays shows they are tame, but back in the 60s as a young un, they were scarey then <^>

Sorry, but being a young kid back in the 60's, these shows were scarey to me


The Prisoner was not scarey at all to me, it was more a great mess with the mind type show, it is known/considered science fiction....great series .... I have it on DVD and VHS

If you want to add shows that aired on TV, I would have to add another Dan Curtis show (with a couple of episodes in it) called the "Triliogy Of Terror" I am talking about the original 1975 version with Karen Black, the episode about the Zuni Doll really freaked me out

Even though there was not that many episodes how about "Day of the Triffids" it is also considered scifi, but it had some creepy moments  (remember the weird clicky sounds they made?) and could be considered horror/scarey stuff

I have to agree with nina about Dr Who, the daleks and other monsters sent many a child from the UK and Europe running behind the couch in terror

Still other than the ones I mentioned (and Nina's) those were the scarey shows that were the most well known, and the best IMHO

They all have survived the test of time


As far as new TV shows are concerned hands down "Supernatural" is the best in the horror genre

Most of reality T.V-because we're watching "real people" turn into actual jerks on live T.V.

I'm betting we will have a running man type show in the future...lol.

This one:

"http://www.youtube.com/v/fBGGAjMg9vw?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"

I think this is a show every child should see, it teaches such valuable life lessons that children usually learn when they get older...like 70 years later.

The creepiness factor is nice, but the true beauty(or terror, whichever you prefer) of this cartoon is in its vivid portrayal of Mark Twain's lesser known work, The Mysterious Stranger.

I really enjoyed that one, Moneyman.

This is deliciously disturbing too:
