The series is based on the character Lucifer Morningstar from DC Comics. The series centers on Lucifer Morningstar, also known as The Devil, who runs a nightclub and helps the Los Angeles Police Department “punish” criminals. Lucifer stars Tom Ellis as Lucifer. This TV show like the Exorcist is a bit more on the comedic side than totally scary, but it’s still a lot of fun to watch!

The 5th and final season of the series is set to premiere in the spring of 2017.

The series focused on the life of Maria Abascal and her brother, David Abascal, who are professional demon hunters. South of Hell starred Mena Suvari as Maria and Zachary Booth as David.


Honestly, in my opinion, no show like The Exorcist is going to be quite as terrifying. There’s a reason that story has held up through numerous sequels and reboots over the years! Still, some of these are pretty darn scary! Bates Motel completely freaks me out!

  1. I have been watching Lucifer and I love it. I will have to check out these on the weekend. I am always looking for scary shows to watch.

  2. Nope! I hate scary, horror, thriller type shows. My mom was a huge fan. When I was a kid we would have to watch them all weekend when Elvira was the host.

  3. OMG! I’m the worst with these scary shows, esp when it comes to zombies and Exorcist stuff… my goodness! I can’t watch scary shows until I live with a man again because I’m a chicken! lol

  4. I hate watching any of these types of shows! I’m sure this is a great list though!

  5. I don’t like watching too many creep tv shows. I do like watching the crime shows.

  6. I am such a scaredy cat so I never watch this kind of shows. My husband loves them though so he watches horror films himself. 🙂

  7. Ooh. I don’t watch those kind of shows anymore since highschool. LOL! Especially now that we have kids. The ‘Lucifer’ title scares the hell out of me already! I do watch horror films sometimes but with friends so I won’t focus too much on the scary scenes. LOL!

  8. Oh no, I do not like watching horror stories. When I was a kid, I did watch but no longer at the present. My imagination runs wild when watching scary movies. I sleep alone and I cannot sleep well having those creepy creatures inside my mind.

  9. South of Hell reminds me of an old Slayer song (South of Heaven)- wonder if it’s as good.

  10. The South of Hell sounds good to watch. I love watching this kind of shows. I watched the exorcist few times.
