2. American Horror Story
The final two horror shows on Netflix are all about the scares. American Horror Story is first on the list, the Ryan Murphy horror anthology that has covered so many scary topics. The first season is one of the strongest, covering the story of a family moving into a haunted house. From there, we’ve had stories in asylums, carnivals, and after an apocalypse.
The episodes jump back and forth between time periods. All seasons connect in some way, whether it’s a character showing up or the same mythology used. Seven seasons are currently available on Netflix, with American Horror Story: 1984 joining in November. Season 8 sadly isn’t available to stream.
1. The Haunting of Hill House
Finally, it’s all about one of those horror shows on Netflix that also brings a lot of heart and character development. The more you watch it, the more you’ll see the sadness within the tales, and how all five stages of grief are shown in detail.
The Haunting of Hill House has jump scares, bumps in the night, and ghosts. Look out for the ghosts that show up in the background of shots. They’re nothing dangerous for the characters, but they become a game with others as you see who spots one first.
The Haunting of Bly Manor is a spiritual sequel to the story, but not as scary. It’s more of a ghost love story than a ghost story.
