Just remember the intro. It was a person running through a field or woods wearing a black cloak and ends up at a house with dolls in the window and a voice that says boo. It was kind of scary and twilight zone-ish.

Do you recall if it was live action or animated?

You mentioned remembering the intro, so I assume you're speaking of a live action 1980s TV show. And one that seems to be horror themed.
There are a couple of choices for that.
Possibly-

Tales from the Darkside
Tales from the Crypt
Monsters (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monsters_%28TV_series%29)
Hammer House of Horror
Shades of Darkness
Amazing Stories
The Hitchhiker
Freddy's Nightmares
Friday the 13th.
Werewolf (not exactly strictly horror- but has some elements certainly)
Eerie, Indiana (early '90s series)
Are You Afraid of the Dark? (early '90s series)
Goosebumps (this is a '90s show though)
Kolchak, the Night Stalker (that one's a '70s show, so that may be a stretch...)
Night Gallery (also a '70s show, but it could have been shown in reruns in the '80s where you lived)

And of course- the classics from the '50s and '60s- I doubt it would be these, but possibly if they were shown in reruns-

Alfred Hitchcock Presents
The Alfred Hitchcock Hour
Dark Shadows
The Outer Limits
The Twilight Zone

(Also, in the mid-80s there was a new version of The Twilight Zone- that might be one to look into as well.)

Those are some of the ones I can think off offhand and that I've found in searching online. Try looking them up in Youtube and see if anything jars a memory loose.
If not, maybe someone else here will have some more ideas.

(Here's a long list you can try with series from many different decades- http://www.imdb.com/list/tgq8MaYXX8w/)

My bet's Friday the 13th, but I could be wrong. Here's another list that may help.
