The A.V. Club's guide to horror TV shows. Buffy is featured alongside the likes of The X-Files, Twin Peaks, and other landmark shows.

I do think the writer gives The Walking Dead far too much credit (for a show about a zombie apocalypse, I find it pretty dullsville). Just me.
"The Walking Dead is a straight-up horror series, without exception." Um, except for a goodly portion of the first season which was the same tired soap opera cum bottle episode. I like my zombie things to have actual, you know, zombies.

I'm told it got much better in Season 2 but I never bothered to go back, and I've since cut the cord so no more AMC for me... there's lots of other stuff to watch.
I think there's a case to be made for Black Mirror and Inside No. 9 as I found those two shows to be quite horrific.
Black Mirror has horror, but mix it with a lot of sci-fi and social critique. It is like Twilight Zone or Amazing Stories.
