With Halloween just around the corner, it’s prime time to binge the best in TV horror. Have a look at current series intent on scaring you witless that are airing now or are between seasons and available on demand or streaming.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Stranger Things' slow-building sophomore season balances moments of humor and a nostalgic sweetness against a growing horror that's all the more effective thanks to the show's full-bodied characters and evocative tone.

Preacher: Season 2 (2017)
91%

#2
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Preacher's sophomore season benefits from more focused storytelling, without sacrificing any of its gorgeous, violent, insane fun.

#3
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A clearer sense of purpose and extra helpings of cynicism and danger lead The Magicians to a higher level of engagement.

#4

1922 (2017)
91%

#4
Adjusted Score: 92535%
Critics Consensus: Thanks to director Zak Hilditch's patient storytelling and strong work from lead Thomas Jane, 1922 ranks among the more satisfying Stephen King adaptations.
Synopsis: A rancher conspires to murder his wife for financial gain and convinces his teenage son to participate.... [More]
Directed By: Zak Hilditch

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: American Horror Story: Cult intrigues with timely, over-the-top creepiness - and lots of clowns - despite being hampered by broad political generalizations and occasional holes in the narrative's logic.

Ghosted: Season 1 (2017)
59%

#6
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Craig Robinson and Adam Scott's odd-couple chemistry is strong enough to carry Ghosted through a first season that finds the show a promising work in progress.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Walking Dead's eighth season energizes its characters with some much-needed angst and action, though it's still occasionally choppy and lacking forward-moving plot progression.

Lore: Season 1 (2017)
69%

#8
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Subtle and spooky, Lore's horror-laden history lessons take on new life on the small screen, though it sticks too closely to the podcast's original format to truly distinguish itself.
Starring: Aaron Mahnke

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: No End House's central mystery is stronger and scarier than Channel Zero's first, solidifying its status as one of TV's scariest horror offerings.
Directed By: Nick Antosca, Max Landis

#10
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Wynonna Earp ups the ante with more action, more surprises, and more Melanie Scrofano as the titular sharp-tongued gunslinger.

#11
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus:

#12
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus:

#13
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Exorcist continues to haunt in a more confident second season, with an assured storyline and mastery over its demonic flourishes.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A distinctive ensemble brings a compelling flavor of Fear to The Walking Dead mythos, but this ambitious spinoff still shares its originator's penchant longwinded pacing that may diminish the tension for some viewers.
