"I love American Horror Story for several reasons. I appreciate the combination of cheesy camp and nightmare fuel. …. Every season starts out scary, but always ends up going in a wild direction. Sometimes it's insane in the best way, sometimes it’s a trash can fire … but both make for great television. Plus, it’s an anthology series so you can’t get too attached, and the cast gets the opportunity to play many different characters!"

I love horror, but could never watch anything on my own (I admit, I'm a "scaredy-cat" at heart). It's an awesome show - not just because it has all the elements of a thriller and gore, but has some genuine heart-to-heart drama infused in it as well. Who knows, I might just get the courage to watch the next season on my own, haha!"
"By the end credits of the first episode I was totally obsessed with this show. The suspense is tangible, the cinematography is gorgeous, and the idea is original -- and terrifying. From start to finish there's this unbreakable tension and a sense of overbearing darkness. This brilliantly cast show will leave you haunted with a sense of ominous foreboding."

"'What We Do in the Shadows' hits my sweet spot as a vampire expert/aficionado, and it is freaking hilarious! Great cast and some incredible cameos here and there. Brilliant parody of vampire movies with some "biting" social commentary as well. Can't wait for Season 2!"

"The Haunting of Hill House wins for me - the reason being that it takes me back to living in a haunted house called … Hill House."
Are you curious what that house looked like? So were we....
