I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: We’re living in a Golden Age for horror on television. While shows like The Outer Limits and The Twilight Zone were considered niche, future series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The X-Files paved the way for horror domination in the form of The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, stranger Things, and many others.
As both practical FX and CGI technologies continue to evolve, we’re seeing some truly amazing and terrifying monsters in our favorite horror TV shows. But it’s important to remember that hideousness doesn’t always equal dread; some of the genre’s most disturbing creatures are the most human. That’s why it’s necessary to take all of TV history into account when picking out the 10 scariest monsters to ever haunt the small screen—which is what our friends at WatchMojo.com have done in the video below!
These are the fiends that trolled shows like Lost, Dr. Who, and even Game of Thrones. Have a look and let us know in the Comments section if your favorite scary TV monster made the list!
