Best-Reviewed TV Horror 2018

It was a great year for horror in general, but particularly in the number and quality of horror series on TV. Netflix’s viral hit The Haunting of Hill House, Hulu’s Stephen King anthology Castle Rock, and the category winner, AMC’s breathtaking survival horror series The Terror, all make for stellar examples of the genre.
