Are you in the mood for a little spook this weekend? We have you covered.

With thousands of TV shows and movies to choose from, it’s easy to get stuck in the endless stroll of what Netflix has to offer. Instead of stressing out or wasting valuable TV binging time, we’ve created a list of the Netflix horror TV shows that you probably haven’t seen.

Netflix has been dominating the horror TV show genre for years by offering A-listers like Stranger Things, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and American Horror Story.

Below, there are three Horror TV shows on Netflix that you may like if you like the ones mentioned above.

Horror TV Shows on Netflix this weekend: Jan. 30-31

1. Creeped Out 

The horror series Creeped Out is an anthropology series meaning that episode explores a new story— much like Black Mirror. However, unlike Black Mirror, this series is family-friendly and geared towards a younger audience. But don’t let that turn you off from this show, it is playful horror, but still horror.

Although each episode differs from one another, they are all connected by an unidentified masked person referred to as The Curious. Seemingly, he serves as the storyteller. While the stories can be a bit predictable and cheesy, they are enjoyable to watch develop.

Netflix synopsis:

"A masked figure known as “The Curious” collects tales of dark magic, otherworldly encounters and twisted technology in this kids anthology series."

Creeped Out has two seasons available for streaming on Netflix.

2. Dead Set

Dead Set is a 2008 British dark comedy by Charlie Brooker, the creator behind Death to 2020 and Black Mirror. This show takes place in a fictional version of the popular television show Big Brother, a program where a bunch of contestants are put in a house together and placed under strict surveillance.

The general premise of the show is followed in Dead Set except they don’t get far in the production before a zombie outbreak occurs and quarantines the cast and crew to the Big Brother set.

This show has generally positive reception and features fun cameos from the real cast of Big Brother. But don’t be fooled, while it all sounds “fun and games” there’s some solid gore throughout the five episodes.

Dead Set has one season available for streaming on Netflix.

3. Dracula (2020)

Released last year by the creators of Sherlock is this new reimagining of the classic Bram Stoker novel of the same name. While the show has a bit of a slow start, it doesn’t hold back from spine-chilling imagery and gory violence— the first episode opens with a close-up shot of a fly on a character’s eyeball. Totally gross!

Dracula is a perfect weekend-watch as it only has three episodes, each one timing at about an hour-and-a-half.

Angela Zimmerman from Common Sense Media described this show as:

"There’s a lot of satisfying bits to unpack here for horror and classic literature fans, and Dracula ultimately does a fine job of honoring both Bram Stoker’s original story and the horror genre as a whole."

Dracula season 1 is available for streaming on Netflix.

There you have it! Three sinister horror TV shows to stream on Netflix that are guaranteed to give you a scare.
