Horror TV Series

When we compare television horror series with horror movies, we can say they’re similar at heart, but the end product is actually very different.

Series are a miniature movie with hooks for commercials and more jokes than movies, but this is a gross generalization as a definition of the difference.

These two formats have different dynamics, and they require two different watching approaches.

I see the arcs of story and character development of television series as something less-defined than in a movie, more changeable, and ultimately open.

To compensate for the drawback of the watcher never being able to see the complete arc of the story in one sitting, TV series allow other means of development that aren’t possible in movies.

Take, for instance, the character development of TV series. You can’t achieve the same character dimensions with the constraints of a feature-length movie.

Ninety minutes or two hours don’t compare with dozens or even hundreds of hours getting to know the characters, the story’s world, and the story itself.

That said, to follow a group of characters and a story for hours and hours might be what many of us are looking for.

To lose your sense of self for an hour and step into a worlds that are more agreeable to us, compared to a flat and lacking in wonder quotidian reality

Horror Movie Series

Horror movie sequels that continue the story of the original are a very controversial and polarizing topic. I haven’t seen horror fans as concerned, alarmed, or vitriolic in any other subject of conversation about movies as in this one.

One of the arguments is that horror properties lose their value when they get sequels.

This is highly debatable, but in the end, movies are art, and art is subjective. I think there’s nothing as fallen as not liking something and needing to knock it down, to take the disgust off your back; like I’ve seen many grumpy old trolls do.

Sadly enough, film horror series are prime targets for that kind of attitude.

Horror movies have, for more than two generations, become serialized content, not unlike television horror series.

Some of the franchises have dozens of sequels (like, for instance, the Amityville saga) and they didn’t need to resort to making remakes of the originals to stay alive.

There are many variables by which a saga of movies can be judged and many different points of view from which one can interpret a  movies’ saga sharing the same themes, topics, and stories. To name a few just off the top of my head:

  • Quantity of items
  • Quality of items as related to each other
  • The length of the movie series, was it for art or for money?
  • Sequels true to Original?
  • Sequels are for the sake of story or just a cash-grab?
  • Grade of intertextuality of one movie with the others
  • If I start by the first and watch all of them one after another, does it feel like a grand narrative?

Horror Art Series

Who didn’t feel either repulsion, apprehension, or fear when watching an H.R. Giger illustration or sculpture, or a Francis Bacon painting? Who doesn’t feel their toes writhing with unease and shock, when seeing gruesome scenes of torture, hurt, mutilation and gore in horror movies?

Sometimes the bathos of the atrocious can gratify aesthetic needs.

Many seem to forget that horror feeds on art, and there have been horror paintings even from before horror-oriented, and dark photography and horror cinema did exist.

Many pieces of antique horror imagery are in the public domain and are available not just to enjoy them but also to use them. In any way that one deems necessary, even commercially.

Horror paintings series mustn’t go unnoticed. While not as accessible as the other three types of horror items in this section, they are food for thought and material for conversation and discussion.

There is a lot of Content yet to be Written About Horror Series

What We Do in the Shadows Vampire Council 7821 by Bretch Bug


Let’s for a moment review the case of horror TV series. It’s a relatively recent phenomenon. Horror TV series became common less than three generations ago.

In contrast, TV series of other genres will soon reach four generations in the airwaves (and the cables). I’m talking about generations not decades here; a generation being, roughly, 23 years.

And I’m talking about REAL horror TV series. Not about black comedy, like “The Addams Family” (not that I think TAF isn’t horror too), or Gothic drama, like “Dark Shadows”.

Like I wrote previously, they are a lot and many of them are extensive. And these two are just a couple of variables in the list of reasons why a curated approach to horror TV series is better than a whimsical one.

  • Is it the series that I’m looking for?
  • Is it going to deliver the genre conventions I seek?
  • Is one given series worth the time investment when I could easily watch three other complete series in the same amount of time?
  • When it’s an old one, is it relevant to watch it today?

That said, to follow a group of characters and a story for hours and hours might be what many of us are looking for. To lose your sense of self for an hour and step into worlds that are more agreeable to us, compared to a flat and lacking-in-wonder quotidian reality.

It’s because of that the ease of consumption that a curating approach gives must be an objective of those who are serious about assimilating as much serialized horror content as possible.
