Best Horror AnimeThe title says it all. Which horror anime freak you out the most?
The Top Ten
The concept is so cool! Mind you, the deaths will scare the hell out of you. Very gory and bloody, but it adds to the essence, no doubt. The characters are so riveting and the suspense is far too good for words! The music is also very creepy! Loved it!
This is a creepy horror anime with senseless deaths that are disturbing to certain people.
Laughed all the way through it. Just like I did with Higurashi and corpse party. I'm a messed up twelve year old.
The deaths are pretty ridiculous so it is understandable higurashi and corpse party is so amplified in intensity that you can only laugh - germshep24
I don't consider this anime very scary, honestly, it didn't make me feel horrified at all and the deaths didn't get to me either. They were entertaining to watch and surprising since you don't know who's gonna live and who's gonna die, so I'll give the anime that. I mainly liked the last two episodes since everything went to chaos and it just felt... fun! Okay that may sound a bit messed up, but I like murder montages. I still enjoyed the whole anime altogether, the mysteries were good, and to sum this up, the anime isn't that scary except if you're frightened of gore, or if the tense situations got to you.
I loved this anime. It's very bloody and gorey, but it's also heartbreaking and sad. I feel bad for all the diclonii and I really hate that organization that they have. It's a very good anime, and if you say it's horrible and that all there is is blood and gore, you only watched 5 minutes of the anime. Finish watching the series
This is one of my favourite anime series of all time. Lucy is amazing my favourite character. The gore is perfectly balanced with the story line. I just wish there was more. The ending disappointed me a little. But is still my favourite...
This anime connected with my emotions. I have no words. This anime was perfectly executed and beautiful. I'm looking forward to watching the OVA today.
The story made me cry and is what made me what I am todayV 6 Comments
As much as I love Elfen Lied, this show fits the horror genre perfectly. I have watched most of it and it is so creepy. It isn't entirely gore like Elfen Lied but has a really creepy atmosphere keeping the suspense and half way through you can almost predict what will happen. Best horror anime. Recommended by me. ( I haven't actually watched another though ) - Animeemmy
A murder mystery that may be confusing, but all is explained as you progress through the series. The torture may be disturbing and freak you out. Shion might freak you out too...
The best horror anime to ever exist. Has mystery and it's very hard to piece together. It's really scary and deserves to be number 1. Elfen Lied, and Another aren't really horror in my opinion.
don't WATCH THIS
now I'm fine w/ horror, yknow? minus EXTREME gore. and this series is. EXTREME gore.the nail ripping, and cleavers likE AVOID AVOID AVOID
A survival game for those who are chosen to participate fight to the death and the last standing becomes god and prevents the apocalypse from taking over. Beware of Yuno.
Truly amazing! So many plot twists it left me wanting more!
Yuno is my spirit animal. She and I are of like mind.
Even though this anime scarred me for life, it's still my favourite anime, up there with Elfen Lied and PMMM.
I just loved the plot and the lack of fan service
Love it when kaneki fights jason in episode 12 then eats him
Tokyo ghoul is the best serie I ever watched
Nice..except for a little thing..it's not horror.V 3 Comments
It is dark and scary
Don't be fool be the park's appearance
It is hell
Can't wait to see second series of this totally awesome and gripping anime. Deadman wonderland is so bizzare and so brilliant. Love it.V 2 Comments
Not traditionally spooky, but certainly has the best story ever for a horror anime. Are you smart enough to predict what will happen before it does? Will you guess what happens at the end before you see it? Make sure Kira does not write your name on the notebook, for otherwise, your time is short.
I love Death Note but it's not a horror. It's suspenseful and mysterious but in no way is it meant to be scary.
Make sure your name is not written on the notebook.
The best anime in the worldV 5 Comments
Good grief... I made a mistake of watching SOME of this... Even the RPG is so scary. I get easily scared of paranormal stuff
The game is less spooky but this is just STRAIGHT DOWN GORE
OH MY GOD! My bff dared me to watch this at home in my room in the dark while my rents were asleep and again... OH MY GOD THIS ANIME SCARED THE CRAP OUT OF ME! I LITERALLY COULD NOT SLEEP WITHOUT THE LIGHT FOR 2 MONTHS AFTER WATCHING THIS SHOW. THIS ANIME SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE
Honesty it isn't so bad. In fact I saw all of the deaths on my phone and didn't bat a single eye.V 4 Comments
WARNING: DO NOT WATCH THIS WHEN YOU ARE AT HOME ALONE, WITH HEADPHONES ON FULL BLAST. ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE HOME ALONE AT MIDNIGHT.
This Anime has a ton of jump scenes and it's really spooky. Will send shivers down your spine. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
This anime was entertaining and several times had me scared to go into any room alone.
This one should be higher up on the list. It's
one of my most favorite horror anime - AnimeFan2000
The first episode made me feel sick due to its use of gore, but I have to admit it remains one of my favorites. It's relatively disturbing and not for the faint of heart, but it's beautiful and has a nice payoff. It definitely deserves a higher position.
This is relatively disturbing. You honestly cannot tear your eyes away. Although you may get used to the gore, you are always excited for the next chomp out of a person. The art is great and really gets the you!
Literally the first episode scares anyone who watches it and it totally scarred me for life. Amazing action and horror, definitely deserves to be in the top ten.
I'm sorry but I hate Attack on Titan so muchV 2 Comments
Love it. But it didn't freak me out a whole lot. The second episode was the main one that scared me cause I was watching it when an old man walked on to the front porch and attempted to open the door. I went and got a knife and stood there mentally dating him to open that door and see how long he lasted. Also my second fear is being stalked do it freaked me out anyway.
The animation was great. The music was incredible. The story line towards the end of the season was really good, horror wise. This has become one of my favorite anime of all time.
The first episode is scary as hell! The rest was meh. But the animation was great. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
One of the first anime I've ever watched and it was amazing

Vampires and Zombies. Am I missing something?V 1 Comment
If you say that this is a anime version of the walking dead then you haven't seen this
It wasn't very scary to be honest but I think it was still pretty good
Anime version of The Walking Dead.V 1 Comment
This isn't even horror, why did this get mentioned? Sure there may be a few blood scene but it isn't really physiological or gruesome. Great anime in all comparisons but not scary
WHAT THE CRAP?!?! What the heck is this on here for?!?! This is not a horror it's just depressing
Most beautiful anime I've ever seen.V 1 Comment
