October 31 is coming up we keep sailing in that “spooky season” where we feel like watching (and they premiere many) series and horror movies. Every year dozens of series of this genre are released and today we are going to review the best ones, just in time to do a marathon halloweenian.
A) Yes, we have 7 great horror series released this year in Spaina. This has the advantage that by having only one season broadcast in our country (when they are not miniseries) we can devour it in a couple of afternoons… if we can bear so much fear, violence and blood.
The ranking of terror 2022
As always, it is Netflix that does not stop bringing terrifying fiction from all over the world, including projects from masters like Guillermo del Toro or Mike Flanagan. We also have a great opportunity to enjoy the television version of mythical monsters of terror such as chucky.
Of course, by limiting myself to this year’s premieres we have left out new seasons like ‘Evil’ 3, for example. We have also not included some of the latest horror series “high profile”, such as the television versions of ‘Interview with the vampire’ and ‘Let me in’, since they have not yet been released in our country.
In case this list is a little short for you, I invite you to walk through our ranking of the best television horror that we can see in streaming and the great examples of the genre in Spain. Also, if we go by genre, these are the best vampire, zombie and haunted house series.
If you are hungry for horror movies, these are the most outstanding of this 2022, of the past decade and of history. We also have our favorite sequels, great anthologies, our favorite mumblegore
developed by Rebecca Sonnenshine | Distribution: Mamoudou Athie, Dina Shihabi, Evan Jongkeit, Julia Cha, Ariana Neal, Matt McGorry and Martin Donovan
Based on the homonymous podcast, this is one of the first surprises of this year’s television horror. An interesting cocktail between the found footage and the cursed house (building) that absorbs us in what history is reconstructing before our eyes. Too bad it doesn’t end.
Created by Don Mancini | Distribution: Zackary Arthur, Björvin Arnarson, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Teo Briones, Brad Dourif
It seems unbelievable with the turns that the diabolical doll has given and its television version, far from failing, gives us everything we ask of the saga: killings, blood, fun, etc.
- It can be seen on SyFy (Universal+) | Review by Jorge Loser
‘The Midnight Club’ (The Midnight Club)
Created by Mike Flanagan and Leah Fong | Distribution: Iman Benson, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, etc.
It promised a lot and, although it does not reach the height of other of his works, it is a magnificent portion of terror with this dark youthful mystery starring this group of boys who face death.
‘We are dead’
Created by Chun Sung-il, Lee Jae-kyoo, Kim Nam-su | Distribution: Lee Yoo-mi, Rich Ting, Yi-Hyun Cho, etc.
Ration of zombies and Koreans? give me twelve episodes. And it is that we have a magnificent series that, despite being excessively choral (at the beginning, above all, you get lost among all) is stupendously wild that likes remarkable violence.
It can be seen on Netflix | Review by Mikel Zorrilla
Created by John Griffin | Distribution: Harold Perrineau, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Eion Bailey, etc.
Without flinching when it comes to showing offal, this series takes us to a town that traps everyone who enters it. Through this we have a good dose of intrigue and great sequences of terror that perhaps abuses a bit of the promise of giving us answers.
It can be seen on HBO Max | Review by Jorge Loser
‘Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities’
Created by Guillermo del Toro
What a surprise we have been (well, not too much) with how delicious this anthology is. Eight episodes, each one by a different director that remind us of those classic series of the genre including that search for the literary.
It can be seen on Netflix | Review by Jorge Loser
‘Mr. Midnight: Watch out for monsters’
Created by | Distribution: Idan Aedan, Chen Yixin, Caleb Monk, etc.
From Singapore comes this series for the young generations who enter terror with something lighter (like RL Stine to understand us) with the story of a group of detectives who solve paranormal events in their town.
It can be seen on Netflix
And these have been some of our favorite horror series this year, and yours?
