Nato: Thanks for the introduction this week Remy!
Remy: So horror television seems to be the big thing now, yeah? It only took two solid seasons of American Horror Story to set the tone for what is upon us right now, paving the way for slew of weekly screamers to haunt repeat viewers.
You’ve got Bates Motel, like Smallville with killers. You have The Following and Cult, which are two sides of the same coin. But now with Hannibal catching fire and the surprisingly enjoyable (albeit a bit contrived) Hemlock Grove presented by Eli Roth now available on Netflix, we are living in the time of horror television whether we want to admit it or not. There is even a sub-par Zombieland show that has arrived recently (not nearly as bad as everyone says though, as per Remy).
This got us thinking: What other horror shows have come and gone to little fanfare, yet we love them anyways? The following (see what I did there) are six horror shows that did not survive nearly as long as Nato and I wish they had.
I also want to give a quick shout out to Twin Peaks, which may be the best “horror” show of all time, in this writer’s opinion, but that’s neither here nor there right now. Read on for some true TV horror goodness not nearly enough people enjoyed, as we count down our favorite canceled horror TV shows.
