I haven't watched anime for a long time, I'm 30 years old and I've decided to try the free trial on this site for the 1st time.

Obviously I didn't keep up with the times

Could you recommend some good adult / mature themed anime available on this site?

By adult / mature I do NOT mean hentai, I mean stories and scenarios that can be enjoyed by an adult.

Please NO:
-cute little girls
-teenager romance etc.
-hentai

I'd like to watch animes with a preferably dark theme, I also love horror movies, so if there are good horror animes I'd like to try them. Thanks.

My group pages have extended tags specifically for this purpose:

horror
thriller
psychological
supernatural

(note, not filtered for loli, etc, though, just general tags)

Parasyte. Not sure if this is that mature, but it made me think about things.

It gets darker after like 30 episodes or something.

Flowers of Evil... my personal favourite. Has teenage romance, but not the conventional kind...

Naoki Urasawa's Monster. Only problem is, I didn't watch mine legally, and I can't find a legal stream.

Sword Art Online is terrific, I highly recommend it, albeit not really horror themed. Other good choices include Parasyte (as mentioned above), Akame Ga Kill, Attack on Titan (those last two are very dark). Valvrave the Liberator has pretty mature themes in it, and Aldnoah Zero is good too (both of which are mecha-based anime's).

All of these are good anime with adult themes, and none of them take place in high school

This is not to say that some anime which takes place in high school isn't very good watching for all ages (Toradora, Bakemonogatari, etc.), but if you're looking for more adult themes, this is where I would start:

(By the way, I second both Monster and Attack on Titan, which have been mentioned already.)

- Usagi Drop (Bunny Drop): About 30-something single man who adopts an illegitate relative, a 5 year old girl (On Crunchyroll)

- Barakamon: 20-something artist (caligrapher) prodigy reassesses life, moves to off-beat rural island community, after assaulting a museum director. (on Hulu)

- Full Metal Alchemist/Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood (separate, but related, series): Two brothers (older teens) join the military, and travel their kingdom, hoping to undo the mistake that left them permanently damaged. (On Netflix or Hulu)

- Arakawa: Under the Bridge: Heir to business empire finds himself living with wacky community under a bridge, in order to repay a debt. (On Crunchyroll)

- Trigun: Two insurance agents in post-apocalyptic/old West world, search for a notorious gunman, in order to limit the damage of his supposed rampages--and find that he's nothing like what they believed. (On Netflix or Hulu)

- Golden Time: Young man with severed connections to his own past, goes to university in Tokyo, quickly meets his first friend--and the incredibly beautiful girl stalking that friend. (On CR)

- Maoyu: The great hero marches triumphantly into the castle of the great demon king to end the war between humans and demons by cutting her head off, only to find the demon king is a beautiful woman who asks for his help... in ending the war the right way. (On CR)

- The World is Still Beautiful: Young princess of a small kingdom married off to the powerful foreign emperor who is conquering the known world... and finds that things are a lot more complicated than she was lead to believe. (On CR)

Thanks for the detailted list :)

I will definitely try some of these. By the way, that Monster show seems really interesting, do you know where I could watch it? Is it available somewhere?

I was going to recommend 'Psycho-Pass' and 'Texhnolyze', but neither are in Crunchyroll.

It's not available legally anywhere, and was never fully released on DVD.

I second these recommendations. Both have central characters who are in high school but they are mature themed.

I was lucky and watched it a few years back on Hulu Plus I think, but I do see that they don't have it now. That's a shame.
