Is Supernatural Scary?

Posted by on

No doubt, the Supernatural TV show has creepy vibes and elements of horror. But, it's actually been a while since there was a truly scary episode.

The show, which was first broadcast on The WB on September 13, 2005, is an American dark fantasy television series which follows two brothers who have chosen to follow in their father's footsteps, after their mother dies, and try to get rid of all the supernatural entities. With the death of their father, these two brothers go about hunting demons, ghosts, and other supernatural entities.

While some of its fans consider the series extremely scary, others have found it easy to watch in spite of its elements of horror. However, some episodes of the series seem to be a lot scarier than others. The show seems to get less scary as the episodes go on.. In all, Supernatural does have some scary situations, and depending on whether or not you are a fan of horror; you may find this show to be scary.

Ultimately whether the show is considered scary or not is really up to a person’s opinion. There are some people who would claim that many horror movies are not scary at all while other people say that shows such as Scooby Doo are scary. Ultimately everyone has their own opinion so the only way for you to decide if the show is too scary for you is to watch a couple of episodes.

Synopsis of Supernatural

After John's wife, Mary, is killed by an evil supernatural being, he begins to raise his sons, Sam and Dean, to "hunt all things that go bump in the night". Twenty-two years later, Sam and Dean set out on a journey to find their father, who has recently gone missing. They fight plenty of evil along the way, and when they finally find their father, he reveals to them that he has found the demon who killed their mother and that he has found a way to track down the demon and kill it.

In the midst of all these things, Sam begins to develop scary abilities of seeing visions, including death visions and visions of people dying before they actually do. Somehow, these visions have a relationship with the demon who killed his mother and its esoteric plans, which seem to be all about Sam.

Their father ends up dying after striking a deal with the demon that killed their mother, and the boys who are now alone are determined to finish the work their father started. But as their dying father, John says his last words to Dean; there are disturbing revelations about Sam, who seems to be an inherent part of the demon's plans of doom.

As the boys go about "the family business" after their father's death, they are faced with the realization that their "hunt" is not merely about slashing and killing demons and monsters. It is not even merely about the demon that killed their mother. They also have to face and deal with tougher creatures like angels, reapers, and even Death itself.

The Benders (Season 1, Episode 15)

There's no way having a family of hicks hunting and kidnapping human prey is not a horrifying thing to watch.

Asylum (Season 1, Episode 9)

Asylum definitely gave major chills to viewers of this episode unless well, you're a creepy viewer yourself. Teenagers trapped in an asylum filled with ghosts after spending the night on a dare is surely a first-class presentation and something that you will remember in your nightmares.

The Kids Are Alright (Season 3, Episode 2)

When you've watched those demon children with horrifying faces staring at you and robbing you of your soul, you will be ready to hug your pillows tight when you go to sleep with only one eye shut. It's already scary enough to have normal kids stare at you creepily. Now imagine if they were ghost kids!

No Exit (Season 2, Episode 6) 

Does the thought of a serial killer who tortures and kills young women scare you? Now, let us make that the ghost of a serial killer who tortures and kills young women. How's that? Horrifying, I know. A human serial killer is terrifying enough but a ghost is even worse! 

Family Remains (Season 4, Episode 11)

Here's the episode where Supernatural showed us that humans could actually be as scary as ghosts. Or maybe even scarier. You'll agree when you find out that these humans are rabid incest babies who have been trapped in the walls for all of their lives.

Playthings(Season 2, Episode 11): 

Creepy kids again! Obviously, something we were doomed to deal with for a good part of Supernatural. There is a haunted house and an imaginary friend of a little girl who turns out to be a demon, killing people. Now, we probably all have to be scared of imaginary friends too. Who knows what they might turn out to be.

Roadkill (Season 2, Episode 16)

It turns out the stranded woman who Sam and Dean have been helping all the while is actually a ghost. She'd died many years ago after she and her husband, David, accidentally hit a man called Jonah Greely in her car. Now, it looks like she's spending eternity being chased by the man who she hit. The funny thing is, she didn't even know she had been a ghost all that time.

Everybody Loves a Clown (Season 2, Episode 2)

Everybody loves a clown until this clown is a killer clown. The kids in this episode seem to be quite easy making friends with a strange clown from a carnival, which is also invisible to other people. The clown ends up killing people and even their parents. This episode will surely have you wary of the very next clown you see at a children's party.


If after reading about some of those episodes you still think that it doesn’t sound too scary then you will certainly want to watch a few episodes and see for yourself. If reading those brief overviews of the episodes sent chills up your spin then avoiding watching Supernatural is probably the best thing for you to do.
