Everyone loves horror classics like Halloween (1978) or Scream (1996) but if you’re like me and want something that will last longer than an hour then these are the shows for you! These shows are what I like to call “Cozy Horror” that make you want to curl up on your couch with a warm blanket on a chilling October night.

Goosebumps (2023)

Everyone’s favorite scream queen Justin Long takes on the reimagined R.L Stine show on Disney+ that premiered this month. You don’t want to miss this if you loved the 90s show and the Goosebumps movies! This show follows a similar storyline to the movies but takes on different R.L. Stine monsters in each of the ten episodes. 

Storm of the Century

A Stephen King mini-series of three one-hour episodes that will leave you with so many questions!  Also slight spoiler there will be some crazy magic going on that almost feels random. But if small-town murder plots like Twin Peaks and weather war movies like The Day After Tomorrow interest you this is definitely worth the watch. 

American Horror Story: Delicate 

I will be honest, I was apprehensive about watching this season after not liking last season. However, Emma Roberts, Kim Kardashian, and Michaela Rodriguez? Sign me up! This season scares me as much as The Handmaiden’s Tale does. And did you know this season is based on the book The Delicate Condition by Danielle Robbin! AHS: Delicate brings back that early AHS feel fans love from seasons like Murder House and Coven

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina 

A classic spellbinding remake of the 90s show Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The first season is excellent for a night in! Sabrina Spellman aka Kieran Shipka brings witchcraft to life in this reinvented show and makes you want more. If you like American Horror Story: Coven and the 90s movie The Craft this is a must-watch. 

The Fall of the House of Usher

Mike Flanagan never misses the horror agenda with his shows. The recently released The Fall of the House of Usher takes on Edgar Allen Poe’s short story with a perfect modern twist! You’ll recognize stars like Kate Siegel, Mark Hamill, and Rahul Kohli in this murder mystery. If you love the HBO show Succession and the whodunnit Knives Out movie this is the show for you!

Over the Garden Wall

A Cartoon Network classic that will leave you will an eerie feeling. Don’t be fooled that it’s a kid’s show sometimes even a kid’s show can scare a teenage girl in her 20s. This mini-series has big-name voice actors like Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood and Yellow Jackets’ star Melanie Lynskey. This animation tells the tale of two brothers on Halloween night who get lost in a strange forest and their journey back home.
