Friday the 13th is upon us and there are some shows that are just perfect to watch today. They are spooky and have the supernatural element in them. Over the years there has been more and more horror type shows. Now you can have a mini horror movie every week. Instead of watching a movie this Friday the 13th, why not watch a TV show? So turn off the lights and enjoy one of these shows tonight. Make it a marathon!
5. The Secret Circle (2011-2012)
‘The Secret Circle’ was short lived and cancelled way too soon. These witches deal with high school and learning to cope with their powers. Especially Cassie, who is just learning that she’s a witch. It’s in the witches’ family blood and they are tied together. Their parents were in a circle together and now they are too. Each have at least one parent who died and part of the show is discovering how they died. Once you realize your powers, demons and others will hunt you down and kill you. You are not safe. Cassie’s mother tried to protect her from that life, but then she is killed and Cassie goes to stay with her grandmother, in her mother’s hometown. Here she meets up with the other witches in her circle.
Check out the preview for the series:
4. Charmed (1998- 2006)
The Charmed ones graced our screens for eight seasons and they brought us magic, demons, whitelighters, family and love. There’s not much more you can ask for from a show. Today, Friday the 13th, is the perfect time to reunite with the Halliwell sisters. Whether you like earlier seasons with Prue or later seasons with Paige. Relive Phoebe’s love and destruction with Cole, see true love with Piper and Leo and watch Paige become an amazing witch and caring whiteligher. The sisters save the world over and over again. Witches are perfect for this Friday the 13th.

3. The Vampire Diaries (2009- )
Vampires, what more can you want for Friday the 13th? Werewolves? The show has those too, what about hybrids? Yeah, there are some of those too. You want witches as well? ‘The Vampire Diaries’ has witches too. If all that isn’t enough for you, the show has a great storyline to keep you hooked. It’s quite in depth, so you can enjoy it over and over again. Now the next question is do you want to watch Elena as a vampire or human. Better yet, Stelena or Delena? So many options! Now pop in the DVD or stream from Netflix and enjoy.

2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003)
If witches, vampires, werewolves and hybrids are not enough for you, ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ has so many different creators. And in this show the vampires are completely evil, well mostly. Unless they are cursed with a soul or chip that keeps them inline. My favorite episodes are when Angel loses his soul, Joyce finds out her daughter is the slayer, the mayor attacking on graduation, Willow going crazy and almost destroying the world and most of season seven is really good too. Whether you like high school Buffy, college Buffy or come back from the dead Buffy, this show is sure to keep you entertained today.

1. Supernatural (2005- )
Maybe the best episode to watch today is Bad Day at Black Rock from season three, where they find a very unlucky rabbit’s foot. If you have the rabbit’s foot you are very lucky and if you lose it, well you may just end up dead. Sam loses a shoe, a fire starts in his hotel room without him even moving and he almost gets killed. Not like the Winchester’s aren’t almost dying every other episode as it is. Now if this episode is a little funnier than you would like, there are plenty more to choose from. Sam dying and Dean bringing him back, Dean dying, Sam releasing Lucifer, Sam and Dean putting Lucifer back in his cage, Dean in purgatory, Sam dying and an angel possessing him. Are we seeing a pattern here? It’s a wonder how these boys are still alive. It makes you think that the only way this show can end is with them dead.
