“A Quiet Place” ranked as fans’ top horror movie franchise and the original “The Twilight Zone” was fans’ favorite horror TV series in a survey by Fandango’s transactional digital service Vudu.
The service polled more than 2,500 entertainment fans during the last two weeks of September.

There’s no shortage of creepy content to suit every taste this season, from recent hits to cult classics, many of which are on sale in Vudu’s Horror Store starting today.”
