Best Horror Series 2023

Video game adaptations have certainly fared better on television than in the movies, and 2023 gave us perhaps the best one we’ve ever gotten in The Last of Us, which dominated the pop culture conversation, thrilled millions of viewers, and made fans out of people who had never even heard of the game. Not only did it win the Golden Tomato for Best New Series, but it was also the Best Horror Series we got last year.

Adjusted Score: 83552%
Critics Consensus: The Horror of Dolores Roach bites off more than it could chew with the delicate balance between horror and humor, but Justina Machado's commitment to the zany premise makes for a savory snack of a series.

Adjusted Score: 82104%
Critics Consensus: While Dead City creaks under the constraints of being an umpteenth spinoff, it ultimately shakes off the franchise's rigor mortis thanks to a change of scenery and a focus on two fan favorites.

#5
Adjusted Score: 80536%
Critics Consensus: Grounded by a superb LaKeith Stanfield, The Changeling is an ambitious fairy tale that may be too scattershot in its tonality but never lacks for imagination or spirit.
