I did not vote because my favorite series was not included: FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE SERIES.

Friday the 13th: The Series (1987–1990) is a deserving show with a 7.6/10 rating with 2,709 IMDb votes. and follows two young antique store owners must recover cursed antiques each week. It is an American-Canadian horror television series that ran for three seasons, from October 3, 1987 to May 26, 1990 in first-run syndication.

However,the premise is same each week, as the series follows Micki and Ryan, owners of an antiques store, and their friend, Jack Marshak, as they try to recover cursed antiques, to put them into safety in the store's vault. An anthology series is a radio, television or book series that presents a different story and a different set of characters in each episode or season. These usually have a different cast each week or season,

Since, Friday the 13th: The Series is a regular horror TV series, but it is not a horror anthology TV series, like all the other shows listed; It is not within the scope of the question, therefore it does not qualify as a valid answer option. It has the same main characters each week and each season and just varies the antique they are pursuing and its owner.

Which horror anthology television series* do you think is the scariest?

Some modern horror anthologies, like American Horror Story and Scream Queens  do push the boundaries a bit by changing the setting, theme or characters each season rather than on weekly basis.

I'll say what the character 'Brick' from the show 'the middle' once said, dressed as Rod Serling, to a woman answering her door on Halloween, who first says to him: "Oh... Rod Serling... from Twilight Zone!" Bricks reply was, " No Rod Serling... from Night Gallery... I find it to be more nuanced."


Best written line on TV in years...

Thanks, the issue is too many well-regarded Horror TV anthologies over the past seven decades to include them all as answer options. The good news is the format is seeing a return to to its hey-day with just about every network rolling out their own anthology series. I appreciate the suggestion and feedback.

Amazing Stories wasn't particularly a "horror" series. I would probably call it a sci-fi/fantasy before I said horror. I used to watch it when I was a kid when it first aired, and have revisited some episodes since, and I don't recall anything in that show being scary at all.

The answer options of this question  include multi-genre anthology series.

Which of these television horror anthology series* is your all-time favorite?
*  answer options includes multi-genre anthology series with reboots as distinct options

(from Wikipedia)
Amazing Stories is a fantasy, horror, and science fiction television anthology series created by Steven Spielberg. It originally ran on NBC in the United States from 1985 to 1987.

Episodes

Episode 1.1, "Ghost Train", Episode 1.4 "Mummy Daddy", Episode 1.17, "Boo!", Episode 1.19, "Mirror, Mirror", Episode 1.24 "Grandpa's Ghost", 2.6 "The Greibble". 2.8 "Go to the Head of the Class", 2.17 "Gershwin's Trunk", 2.19 "Without Diana", etc.

That aside, it was included in the answers primarily not for its focus on horror like some other titles were, but included as a Top 20 most voted IMDb TV anthology option to round out the choices with some choices everyone has seen, but that still qualify by virtue of their multi-genre scope. I agree not a top-of-mind anthology when it comes to horror, but one of the better anthology TV series of the 1980s.
