10 Scariest Episodes Of The Walking Dead (So Far)

The horror! The horror!

AMC

Well, it's official: The Walking Dead is coming to an end. Beginning its run in 2010, the epic and plot twisting zombie/horror/drama is one of the 21st century's biggest shows, and it's easy to see why.

Rich with iconic characters, from Rick Grimes to Daryl Dixon, and daring with its constantly switching narrative, the show has survived for as long as it has because of its commitment to tell a risky and satisfying story.

Outside of the brilliant character interactions, the constant presence of death and the violence inhabiting nearly every scene, The Walking Dead is steeped deep in horror. Whether dealing with gory, violent horror or the horror of man, it's not a show likely to steer away from its scary roots.

There have been moments where the horror has taken a backseat, opening the door for more action-packed storylines and dramatic character arcs, but when the writers decide to terrify, they do so with glorious results. Over the ten seasons that have currently aired (nearly), there have been plenty moments that have unsettled audiences.

The following list will take a look at the show's ten scariest episodes of the show's run. Major spoilers follow.
