The Best Spooky Shows on Netflix

             If you follow our company blog, then you’re already well aware that we’re obsessed with TV at Fish. Reality TV, critically acclaimed dramas, comedies, thrillers, serial killer documentaries – we don’t discriminate. We love it all. The instant someone puts in our Fish team Skype “have you guys watched XYZ,” cue none of us working for 10 minutes as we all share our thoughts on whatever TV show happens to be the topic of conversation for the day.

Our TV show discussion of the day today revolved around The Haunting of Hill House, Netflix’s newest, spookiest show (Fish consensus: highly recommend). With today marking Halloween, I figured there was no better time to compile some of our favorite, scariest TV recommendations. If you’re looking to binge something that will likely give you an adrenaline rush and make you want to sleep with a nightlight on, look no further than this list. Happy binging!


  1. The Haunting of Hill House. As I mentioned above, we are all obsessed with this show, and with good reason. On the surface, it seems like your typical haunted house tale, but don’t judge a book by its cover. This show brilliantly explores grief, mental illness and tricky family relationships, with a few creepy ghost moments sprinkled throughout. With top-notch performances from a stellar cast, this is the perfect selection to get you in the Halloween spirit.
  2. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Like most 90’s kids, Sabrina the Teenage Witch holds a sacred place in my heart, so I was pumped when I heard Netflix was releasing a new Sabrina-themed series. However, this version of our favorite teenage witch is much darker (Satan literally appears 30 minutes in) but it’s also equally great.
  3. Making a Murderer. Technically this isn’t a “scary” genre show, but I find this show more horrifying than any ghost tale. The justice system in our country is beyond broken, and this show explores the extreme consequences of when the system fails us.
  4. Stranger Things. If you haven’t heard of Stranger Things by now, you must be living under a rock. Watch this immediately.
  5. The Walking Dead. Yes, this series has been on for years and has beome a pop culture staple, but with good reason. Ironically, I find the zombies to be far less scary than the humans. This show explores how fighting for survival can make good people do terrible things, and realizing that humans are the real monsters of the show makes The Walking Dead easily the scariest series on TV today.
