October Fright 2017: Seven Scary Fun T.V. Shows

I love a good horror movie, but I also enjoy television shows that deal with demons, the paranormal, and or even serial killers. For this October Fright post, I’m sharing seven televisions shows that I am quite fond of. If you’re a fan of any of these, I’d love to discuss them with you in the comments. If you have any television recommendations that are like the ones listed below, I’d love to hear them in the comments.

1. Wynonna Earp (Syfy) – I binge-watched the first season of this on Netflix right before the second season aired on T.V. It’s about a town cursed where demons run amok. The only one standing in their way is the the Earp heir and her trusted demon killing gun called Peacemaker. I love this show so much. It is all kinds of fun, really witty, and I find myself loving the entire cast of characters. Don’t ask me who my favorite is because I absolutely can’t decide.

2. The Walking Dead (AMC) – Of course I am including The Walking Dead on my list. I’ve been watching this show from the very beginning and though it’s had its ups and downs, I’m still a loyal fan. Michonne is my favorite and probably always will be.

3. Stranger Things (Netflix) – If you haven’t watched Netflix’s phenomenal series Stranger Things, what are you doing with you life? I absolute adore this show and its characters. I am beyond stoked for the second season and am currently rewatching the first season in anticipation.

4. Bates Motel (A&E) – I never expected to like this show, but I was in the mood to watch something new on Netflix and decided to give this prequel to Psycho a chance. Oh my gosh, it’s such an engrossing show. Vera Farmiga as Norma Bates is phenomenal. And I don’t know if I should be rooting for these characters, but I sometimes find myself hoping they get away with murder. I still have the final two seasons to watch, so no spoilers!

5. iZombie (CW) – If you love zombies and comedy, you must check out iZombie. I love it when horror shows/movies find a way to incorporate humor. I can’t believe I love a brain-eating zombie so much. Liv is a treat and Rose McIver manages to encompasses different personality traits in each show so effortlessly.

6. So Weird (Disney) – Going way back with this one. This is one of those shows that I look back on and wonder why they don’t make shows like this anymore. I have only fond memories of it and wish I could find the episodes online. I loved Fi and her adventures.

7. Channel Zero: No-End House (Syfy) – One final edition to this list. I just started watching this show about a group of people who are all drawn to this mysterious house. Inside they find some very unusual and creepy things. Finding a way out ends up being harder than any of them thought.

Which are your favorite horror television shows? Are you a fan of any of the ones I’ve listed? Let’s discuss in the comments!

  1. Yes, iZombie is so good! I’m pleased that it’s coming back for another season.

    I just finished watching Stranger Things and I loved it. No idea why I put it off so long…

    I just recently started watching Lucifer on Hulu and it is so much fun! You might like it!

  2. Love this! iZombie and Wynonna Earp are on my to-watch list. They both look so good!

    I enjoyed Bates Motel but stopped watching it at some point. Not for any particular reason, I just forgot about it I think. Maybe I should go back to it.

    I love binge-watching TV during Autumn, it’s so good. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’ve recently started Bates Motel, I’m nearly finished with the first season, and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. I knew Vera Farmiga from The Conjuring, which is partly why I started BM, and you’re so right, she’s a fantastic actress. I really like American Horror Story (some seasons more than others), and, IDK what else would I consider a great show for Halloween. Ooh, I really loved Penny Dreadful, it’s a pretty short, but really unique show. And also, The Lizzie Borden Chronicles. Only had one season, but that was freaking amazing. Great post!

    1. I tired to watch AHS way back during the first season, but couldn’t really get into it. I really want to try again because every time there is a promo for a new season, my interest is piqued. I do want to check out Penny Dreadful and Lizzie Borden. I think both might be on Netflix. Thank you for the recs!


  4. Omg I remember So Weird!!!! Do you remember Ghostwriter? That was the other one I loved, i wanted to solve mysteries haha. I really really want to watch Wynonna Earp and Stranger Things, they’re both on my Netflix list. The rest are too scary or graphic for me hehe.

    1. I had to look up Ghostwriter. It looks familiar, but I don’t have any concrete memories. I did love Are You Afraid of the Dark, Eerie Indiana, and Goosebumps, so I must have seen it at some point. Wynonna is such a fun show and Stranger Things has that 80s vibe going on that I just love.


  5. Awww Hershel </3 The Walking Dead is my favorite show.

    Great list! I just binge watched Stranger Things again to get ready for the next season ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I’m honestly not really into horror (or thrillers, for that matter) but i have been thinking about giving Wynonna Earp a go because it sounds really good. As for recommendations… have you ever seen the Sleepy Hallow tv series? I only watched season one (partially because of how much courage I needed to work up to watch any more and partially because I heard about changes I didn’t like the sound of for later seasons) but it was super good and quite possibly the scariest thing I’ve ever seen.

    1. Wynonna Earp is just so much fun. If you have Netflix, you can binge-watch the first season. I watched the first season of Sleepy Hallow, but didn’t continue and then when I heard what they did to that certain character, I refused to revisit it.
