The 13 Scariest TV Episodes of All Time
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "Hush"
2. "Hush," Buffy the Vampire Slayer
"Buffy" had a number of creepy episodes, but the one that's usually singled out as the creepiest is "Hush," in which the ghostly "Gentlemen" arrive in town; steal everyone's voices, so they can't scream when their hearts are cut out; and float past windows in an extremely ooky fashion. The episode is also one of the series' funniest, with the inability to speak prompting some accidentally R-rated gestures (and Watcher Giles's slideshow is a highlight) -- but the Gentlemen's awful rictuses, and disorientingly foot-free mode of travel, make them an all-time scariest Big Bad.
