I'm looking for a new series I can watch that is in the horror genre that stands out to you.

Two that come to mind is Blood+ and Death Note

I'm not looking for exact knockoffs of either series but for the feel the anime gave me - the creeps, horror, supernatural drama, etc.

Hopefully It's here on CR but is there anything that comes to mind, whether brand new or 10+ year old?

Thanks for any input!

Just going off of what MAL has tagged as horror, in addition to those listed above, I'd recommend:
Gakkou no Kaidan
Parasyte and/or Tokyo Ghoul (I guess you could consider these "body horror")
Ghost Hunt
Monster (more psychological than horror)
Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne
Dusk Maiden of Amnesia (this one is kinda like horror/school romance/comedy)
Hellsing (assuming vampires make things fall into the "horror" genre)

Also, here on Crunchyroll is a show called Gakkougurashi! (which I think they have listed as School-Live!), which is a pretty cool spin on several of these genres (largely based off the dichotomy between the art style and the general topics/plot).

Good luck finding something that you like.

Most of these are on CR...

Kagewani (already mentioned)
Mushi-shi (season 2 is here on CR. season 1 is on Funimation and also on their Youtube channel:
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica
Aku no Hana (creepy psychological drama)
Attack on Titan (i suppose this would be considered science fiction. has its horrific moments.)
Mob Psycho 100 (more of a supernatural action/comedy. you might like it though.)
Claymore (violent dark fantasy. on Funimation.)
Jigoku Shoujo (not sure where to find the earlier seasons streaming)
