What are your favorite horror anime?
I love the horror genre and recently ordered season 1 of When They Cry based on a lot of favorable reviews. Does anyone have any favorite horror anime they can suggest? Something dark would be great
Monster is an incredible series. It has just about everything I could ask for in a good show and then some.
Parasyte is also an incredible show, one of my favorites. Mainly because of Migi, that little guy is an incredible character.
Another is a really good horror/mystery/dark anime. I would definitely suggest it. It's one of my favorites in the genre.
If you like that kind of anime, you may enjoy Corpse Party. It wasn't something that I particularly loved, but the mystery and atmosphere was really well done. However, if you can't stand gore, I would avoid Corpse Party altogether.
From the New World
Sankarea (though even I would say that's more about horror elements than an actual horror)
Garden of Sinners
When They Cry
Requiem From the Darkness
Brynhildr in the Darkness
Ghost Talker's Daydream
Portrait of Petite Cossette
Highschool of the Dead
King of Thorn
Deadman Wonderland is one of my favorites.
And as Kruszer already said, Elfen Lied and Hellsing Ultimate are really awesome too.
I don't follow many, but Hell Girl is hypnotic and 3x3 Eyes mesmerizes me (I also have some of the manga in Japanese). I tend to prefer horror with mythological bases.
I haven't watched any yet, I guess I should start watching some.
