11 scariest TV shows of all-time
Did 'American Horror Story' or 'Hannibal' make our list?
3. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"
Why it was scary: You know what was scarier than ancient vampires, invisible girls, Moloch the Corruptor, marauding werewolves, rogue slayers, haxil beasts, exiled Hell Gods, military-constructed hybrid creatures, mayoral giant lizards, vengeful nerds, out-of-control witches, myriad minions, a Soul-Sucker, several robots, an ever-widening Hellmouth and more apocalypses than anyone could count? High school. College. Sex. Relationships. The uncontrollable death of loved ones. Adult responsibilities. Growing up. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" was all about the things that terrify us in our nightmares, but also the things that terrify us in our everyday lives.
Scariest Moment: You can either pick any moment from hush, or you can go a different way and say that the scariest moment in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" was Buffy's powerlessness in the face of her mother's death in "The Body." But if you think the latter is more "sad" than scary... The Gentlemen.
