Peek-a boo! Hello and goodbye to Halloween’s Eve that has passed by with tales of the undead that left us hanging and begging for more. But by rummaging through my past memories of being a horror series fan and viewer at a very young age, I would like to impart the best horror series that provided me shock-factors and bemusement. Below are the TV series that are timeless (as well as spine-tingling).
1. Twilight Zone
Twilight Zone is flagged as “The Fifth Dimension” where there is like a warp in time and certain perplexities that can leave the viewers astounded by the transition of the story lines in the series and as what the narrator says on the first part of an episode, “There is a Fifth Dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and is timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and a summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination, it is an area which we call ‘The Twilight Zone’”. Every episode contains unique content about unknown dimensions (inside an unknown sphere or state of mind) wherein there are scenarios that binds characters into their fate as a consequence of their actions.
This is one of the best Sci-fi series that provides a glimpse of the FBI and conspiracy about the (American) government including the mysteries surrounding around science experiments. The story revolves around Fox Mulder, an FBI agent who seeks for clues about the whereabouts of her sister who was believed to be abducted by Unidentified Flying Objects. As he searches for clues of the abduction while being assigned to one of FBI’s units, “The X-files”, he delves in deeper to the obscure together with co-agent Dana Schuly, the agent who is more into reality and the analysis of science. And as for Mulder, the truth is out there somewhere.
3. Tales From The Crypt Keeper
You might have heard the sarcastic puns and piercing laughter of The Crypt Keeper during the introduction of each episode. The Crypt Keeper, a grotesque looking creature, is the narrator of the this hair – raising series with various episodes of ghoulish tales surrounding men with carnal and wordly desires. As the saying goes, “be careful what you wish for” and you will see that each episode entails the outcome of man’s deeps desires.
