Are you looking for some extremely graphic and bloody TV to satisfy your need for thrills? There’s nowhere else to look! This list has three shows that will make you grab for the remote control to turn up the volume—not out of terror, but to appreciate the skillful use of special effects on exhibit.

1. The Boys (Amazon Prime)

Prepare yourself for a unique humorous superhero showdown. “The Boys” dismantles the superhero genre, exposing a world in which the superheroes, or Supes, are conceited, immoral celebrities who misuse their abilities. The Boys, a motley crew of vigilantes seeking retribution, enter. There are plenty of horrific scenes in this show, including laser dismemberment, exploding skulls, and enough blood splatter to fill a swimming pool. However, the gore is counterbalanced by gloomy humour and an unexpectedly moving tale about standing up for what’s right in the face of overwhelming obstacles.

2. Hannibal (NBC)

Seeking something with your carnage that is a little more…cultured? “Hannibal” is a visually gorgeous and psychologically unsettling thriller that centres on the unusual friendship between Will Graham, a talented criminal profiler, and Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a brilliant psychiatrist and, well, cannibalistic serial killer. The show’s depiction of violence focuses more on a spooky aesthetic than on shock effect. Imagine operatic killings that are horrifyingly beautiful and expertly performed. Get ready for some genuinely remarkable visuals, but be advised that “Hannibal” is not for the faint of heart.

3. Kingdom (Netflix)

East meets West in this South Korean historical horror series set during the Joseon Dynasty. A mysterious plague sweeps the land, turning the infected into bloodthirsty creatures with a taste for human flesh. “Kingdom” throws you headfirst into a desperate fight for survival, with political intrigue and palace power struggles woven into the zombie apocalypse. The show’s fight choreography is brutal and balletic, with geysers of blood spraying as swords and spears carve through flesh. If you’re a fan of fast-paced zombie action with a historical twist, “Kingdom” will have you glued to your seat.
