We’ve already got Norman Bates and Hannibal Lecter. What other horror films could survive or even thrive with the transition to the small screen? Here are our picks for five horror movie franchises that could make for engaging, exciting weekly TV series.

We take the opportunity to spotlight some movie killers and their corresponding films that had a low body count but still made a significant impact on viewers.
