MTV's Fear had a different connection to scary TV. It was unlike fiction shows like Twin Peaks, or The X-Files, or The Twilight Zone, because 'Fear' was real. It was unlike other real shows, like Unsolved Mysteries, or Most Haunted, because it didn't have paranormal 'experts', or stories, because it dared average Joes to face these horrors. It was also groundbreaking in a way, being one of the first game shows to use night vision, or having contestants lurk deep into haunted locations, without fifty cameramen with giant cameras and mics following them. This show was scary because it was real, and dealt with everyday people.

Twin Peaks is one of the greatest TV shows of all-time, on top of being one of the scariest. Twin Peaks was a surrealist-neo-noir, courtesy of Mr. David Lynch. It revolved around Laura Palmer's death and Agent Cooper. Talking logs, dwarves speaking backwards, surreal, dreamlike sequences, it had it all. After the show was cut by the network, instead of finally resolving all of the darkness of happy-go-lucky Twin Peak city, Lynch decided to get his revenge on the network by making the final episode leaving more fantastically unsettling cliffhangers and questions than any other thing in the history of anything of ever.

Ghostwatch was a made-for-TV-horror-drama that kicked off BBC's Halloween of '92. The show was terrifyingly realistic, maybe even a little too realistic. In fact, it caused slight pandemonium in the UK after people thought it was for real, before unfairly labeling it a hoax after they were wrong, but it was actually just a sophisticated masterpiece, not unlike 'The War Of The Worlds'. The show was utterly terrifying, and definitely deserves a spot in the Horror Hall Of Fame.

Back in 2002, Chris Morris decided he wanted to make an adaptation of his radio series, Blue Jam. His TV adaptation is thickly laced with jet black comedy and all sorts of sick, twisted humour, and its dark, unsettling and very chilling atmosphere created a whole new kind of creepy. All of the gritty, surrealist and neo-noirish sketches that were produced were in some kind of way scary, but perhaps the creepiest was the dismemberment and disposal, via a smoking, drinking, criminal, cussing... six-year-old girl.
