1- The Walking Dead

Created by Glen Mazzara, Frank Darabont and Scott M. Gimple, with Norman Reedus, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Melissa McBride

When Rick Grimes, former sheriff, wakes up from a coma, he finds that the world he lived in is no more: a zombie apocalypse has taken place and he must now lead a group of survivors with the sole purpose of survival. rest of humanity. It’s already been twelve years that the “prowlers” and survivors of The Walking Dead have walked side by side, often crossing paths for a bloody confrontation and heartbreaking farewells.

From its inception, Frank Darabont’s series, inspired by the comic strips of the same name, fascinated and broke audience records, quickly becoming one of the most watched series in the world. One of its strong points: daring to shock and break the hearts of its spectators, and showing the true face of Man when the laws no longer have any effect. And that is really scary.

2- The Haunting of Hill House

Created by Mike Flanagan, with Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino and Elizabeth Reaser

When emotion mixes with horror, it’s beautiful, it’s scary and it deserves all the honors. In 1992, Hugh and Olivia Crain, alongside their five children, settled for the summer in an old mansion that they had given themselves the task of refurbishing. But strange phenomena come to upset everything. In 2018, the family drifted apart until tragedy brought them together with the diabolical building that has never ceased to haunt them.

Adapted from a novel by Shirley Jackson, the series tells the story of a descent into hell: that of an endearing family forced to face the ghosts of their past, which are still present. The first season of a heart-warming horror anthology series, it’s a real slapper. Heartbreaking and terrifying plot, brilliantly deconstructed narrative framework, obscure photography, complex realization and choice of fantastic actors: let’s face it, Mike Flanagan, its genius creator, left nothing to chance. At the rendezvous, shocks, shivers, tears and startles. Hill House is a subtle styling exercise that will send shivers down your spine.

3- Ash vs Evil Dead

Created by Craig DiGregorio, Sam Raimi and Ivan Raimi, with Bruce Campbell, Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo

It is the turn of humor and horror to combine to give birth to a graphic and hilarious work. Created by Sam Raimi, Ash vs Evil Dead is the television sequel to the famous Evil Dead trilogy. We find there Ash Williams (the faithful Bruce Campbell), the ex-demon slayer turned store clerk, who, after 30 years of hidden and orderly life, spent avoiding everything that directly or indirectly relates to the forces of the Badly, must resume service.

Reunited with his rifle and his chainsaw screwed to his wrist, he is once again ready to face the (and his) demons, this time accompanied by two of his colleagues. This bloody horror-comedy is a gore television UFO, demented and wacky, with caustic black humor. A real “killer”, pun understood.

4-Kingdom

Created by Kim Seong-hun, with Ji-hoon Ju, Ryu Seung-Ryong and Doona Bae

Zombies at the time of dynasties, you had to dare. Kingdom did. South Korean horror series rooted in the Joseon Period, it depicts a corrupt kingdom where famine is rife… and a strange epidemic that awakens the dead, ready to devour. The Crown Prince then investigates to discover the origin of this scourge.

Bold and captivating, Kingdom is Netflix‘s first creation from South Korea, adapted by Kim Eun-hee from a comic book she herself had the idea. From its beginnings, the series surprised more than one. Its success is due in particular to its charismatic characters, its captivating political intrigue, and its grandiose sets and costumes. Renewing the zombie genre, this time placing it in a dark medieval era, Kingdom rewrites history: we dive into it and we believe in it.

5- Devilman Crybaby

Created by Ichiro Okouchi, with Ayumu Murase, Kōki Uchiyama and Megumi Han

After Devilman the manga – signed Gô Nagai (Goldorak) – and Devilman the adapted animated series, here is Devilman Crybaby, the rebooted mini-series. The latter revisits the show of the 70s by inserting issues of our time, but retains the essence of the manga which started it all: here’s something to win everything. In this Japanese anime, Humanity must face an ancient race of demons. The mysterious Ryo, however, has an idea: a human-demon fusion to save the planet. He then offers his friend Akira to experience it: this is how the latter becomes Devilman and sees himself drawn into a most brutal war.

Directed and animated with talent and quality, bloody and uninhibited, the series is of absolute violence and darkness. Raw and committed, disturbing and insane, she knows how to make you think and excite. It shouldn’t be missed.

6-Tokyo Ghoul

Created by Chūji Mikasano, with Mamoru Miyano, Natsuki Hanae and Kana Hanazawa

Adapted from the manga of the same name, Tokyo Ghoul is a Japanese animation series that is sure to make you shiver. Indeed, ghouls, these human-looking monsters who blend into the crowd to better feed on them, have invaded Tokyo. It follows Ken Kaneki, a student who barely survives a deadly encounter with one of his creatures. If he is still alive, it is thanks to an organ transplant… those of his assailant. He then becomes a hybrid being, a lover of human flesh, seeking his place among two opposing camps.

In addition to its realistic graphic style and its original visual effects, the anime is distinguished by its clever mix of action, emotion and horror, its spectacular, gory and violent fight scenes, its well-crafted scenario but also by its hero with a real personality.

7- iZombie

Created by Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright, with Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin and Rahul Kohli

Forensic pathologist and zombie, Olivia Moore (Liv for short) tries to breathe new life into her life after her death, which occurred during a party that went wrong. Taking advantage of her work to satisfy her desires, she indeed concocts small dishes based on seasoned brains. With each bite, she then relives the last moments of her “patients”, even adopting their personality long enough to be able to help the police find their murderers.

Always fun and certainly unusual, this series by Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars) combines humor and intelligent zombies, at the heart of the captivating world of police investigations. Adapted from a series of comic books, iZombie is endearing and addictive entertainment based on its undead but decidedly funny and charming heroine. Just as funny and charming – and not undead – as Rose McIver, his brilliant interpreter.
