The two most popular and critically acclaimed horror TV shows on at the moment. The Walking Dead - created by Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Mist), extremely apocalyptic and thrilling, not really scary, but still equally well written, acted, directed, and a refreshing approach to the zombie genre. American Horror Story - created by Ryan Murphy (Glee, Nip/Tuck), different approach to the anthology horror show where each season is it's own self-contained miniseries that has it's own story, characters, and tone. Seasonal stories include a haunted house, an insane asylum, and a witch's coven. Features a repertory cast that returns each season to play different roles including Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy, and Sarah Paulson. What's your pick? (or favorite?) -- I chose American Horror Story. It's my favorite TV show ever and has been since the first season, I remember watching the pilot and thinking it was okay, but I ended up loving the show. Asylum, to me, is one of the best things I've ever seen. Coven so far has been great and things are really starting to pick up. I love the homages, acting, direction, everything about it. It's the perfect horror TV show in my eyes. I also adore the actors that come back each year, they're all fantastic at at their craft and bring their all to their roles. Kathy Bates is in Coven too. How can you go wrong with that!? Plus I just don't like The Walking Dead that much, it got boring to me.
