Vera Farmiga’s love with the horror genre is intense and we are glad for that as she is perfect for the horror genre. Bates Motel is the contemporary prequel of the movie Psycho which displays the early relationship between Norman Bates and his mother. The show is very unsettling and scary.

Horror shows are plagued with plot-holes and inconsistencies but not this show. The show is set in different timelines and manages to maintain a coherent flow throughout.
#6: It (1990)
The fear of clowns became a widespread occurrence after this show came out. ‘It’ is an amazing adaptation of Stephen King’s work and does not rely on cheap thrills or CGI to scare people. This miniseries terrified an entire generation. We do not know how Stephen King gets his ideas, and after watching this, we think we are better off without knowing.
