Poll: what's the scariest TV show?

Friday, 26 October 2012

It's been months since I did a poll at DMD, for one reason or another, but here's a special one for Halloween. What's the scariest TV show? I'm primarily looking at all types of drama (ongoing series, soaps, miniseries, specials), so will discount reality shows and documentaries. (Although mockumentaries are acceptable.)

Below you'll find a pretty substantial list of chilling TV shows made in the past 50 years, focusing exclusively on the UK and US. Simply click on whichever one you think was the scariest ever made, or add your own submission in the box at the bottom. If your own pick is something very esoteric, it would be great to hear more about it in the comments. You could even embed a video clip!

I'll reveal the electorate's Top 10 on Halloween next week!

And remember, this isn't a vote for your favourite TV show that happens to be part of the list. Do try and give it some thought about which TV shows genuinely frightened you, or had a profound impact on you when you were younger. I'd also love to hear people's comments below, talking about their choice and why they made it.
