With Halloween just around the corner, maybe you are looking for something in the spooky season to watch on your own TV. There have been plenty of scary, creepy shows over the past years. Yet in the 1990s, there seemed to be a lot of different options. Thriller shows, mystery shows, and ones that made you check those locked doors more than once. Well, so we can be in the spirit of the spooky together, here are seven of the best shows from the 1990s to stream at home.
Are You Afraid Of The Dark?
This proved to be quite the anthology series for kids to stay clued into for a period of time. Members of the Midnight Society would recount ghost stories while being around a campfire. A storyteller announces his story, but we leave that scene and follow the story as it plays out. Not for the faint of heart this spooky season.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Oh boy, saddle up buckaroos. Buffy Summers, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, battles the demons on Buffy The Vampire Slayer. And there are plenty of them for her to do so for the spooky season. Buffy is a Slayer. Her sole role is to seek out and destroy vampires and demons. She does battle with a number of forces of darkness.
In this series, we follow the trials and travails of FBI Agent Dale Cooper. He travels to Twin Peaks, a small logging town. And his job is to solve the mystery around the murder of Laura Palmer, a high school student. There are a lot of weird visuals and unique dream parts that help build up the suspense.
Tales From The Crypt
Who in the world would not get a little freaked out by that snidely soul, the Crypt Keeper? Of course, he’d snap off a pun or two. Besides him, the stories made for must-see TV back in the day. The stories were full of different macabre situations. A number of surprising guest stars boosted the show’s success. It’s just in time for spooky season.
Our eyes turn toward Trinity, South Carolina. Sheriff Lucas Buck, played by Gary Cole, seems to be quite interested in Caleb, played by Lucas Black. But there is more going on here than meets the eye. We have Caleb’s dead sister Merlyn come back as an angel. She ends up warning Caleb that Buck is a kind of an evil person. Heck, he might not even be human.
The Outer Limits
In this show, we have a revival from the original series in the 1960s. This is kind of an anthology series that brings weirdness to a head. Storylines will sometimes have aliens or other freaks of nature. Again, embrace the show for your spooky season.
Eerie, Indiana For This Spooky Season
Things turn really freaky as Marshall Teller gets down to business with a number of oddities. In fact, Marshall will wind up discovering that only a kid in his neighborhood can see these odd things. It makes for great spooky season TV.
Well, there you have it. Take what you like here and leave the rest. Happy Spooky Season!
