I have been on a big anthology kick as well. I just purchased season 1 of the Twilight Zone series from 1985 and it is really good. Every episode contains 2 or 3 shorts, most around 20 to 23 minutes, but some being shorter. Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Directors like Wes Craven, Joe Dante, Tommy Lee Wallace, William Friedkin, I am very satisfied with my purchase even though it wasn't cheap. There are a lot more dark episodes than I was expecting. Sometimes still with happy endings but the atmosphere in a lot of the episodes is exactly what I was looking for. There is an episode called Gramma that totally inspired by Suspiria, and actually based on a story by Stephen King. Pretty darn scary.
Tales From the Crypt is my favorite television anthology show. I am a big Robert Zemeckis fan, as well as a big fan of a bunch of the other directors who had their hands on episodes. Tom Holland, Howard Deutch, Richard Donner. Also really enjoy original Zones, Tales From the Darkside, and Masters of Horror.
As far as movie horror anthology goes I've always been a Creepshow guy. And it was mentioned but Trick R Treat is definitely up there. Not a huuuge fan of the movie but definitely watch and enjoy it a bunch when Halloween rolls around.
