Gore doesnt really do it for me. It's just whatever. Does anyone know of any animes that are ACTUALLY horrifying. Thanks ^^

I thought ShinSekai Yori was pretty scarry, but that was more of a psycological scare.

As a side note, I never got why goreservice was clasified as horror, I never found anything like that particularly scarry, just stupid or gross...or both... just my opinion.

True @wingsday ... I don't entirely hate gore but I am also not a big fan of gore and most of the Gore/Horror anime I have seen seem to take it a bit over the extreme ... Take Elfen Lied for example ...

I'd say "ANOTHER". To be honest that's the only horror anime I've seen. Did a good job at giving me the creeps though.

Unfortunately, there isn't really a such thing as a "horror"/"scary" anime. I don't think the human brain respects animations enough to actually get the same "scared" effect that you would from live action horror movies. There are plenty of disturbing themed and gore filled animes though. If you're looking animes to be scared of, you wont find a large selection unless you scare easily. Fortunately, every other anime has creepy parts to it. Try "Monster". I don't know if crunchroll has bought the license to it though. Again, it isn't scary at all but it is an amazing anime.

This series of shorts has a few moments here and there. They aren't consistently scary, but most are pretty good.

Ghost Hunt
When They Cry (Higurashi no nako koro ni)

Higurashi was a really good one. It has gore, but that's not what it relies on it for you to want to watch.
It's a horror, murder mystery, psychological, drama anime.

Chaos; Head (horror/action/scifi)
M3: the Dark Metal (horror/scifi)
Denpa Teki na Kanojo (horror/mystery)
Psycho-pass (horror/scifi)

These aren't what you'd truly call horror, more horror hybrids, but all have those disturbing moments that'll creep you out a bit. Chaos;Head has some gore but the scares come more from moments that you'll find disturbing on a "this seems too possible" sort of level. M3 is just as dark as dark gets in a creeps you out "and then there were none" sort of level (not spoiling because there will still be "some" ). Denpa is in the "human monster" style but most of the gore happens off camera. The first episode revolves around a serial killer of teenage girls on the loose, the second is about a social media sin club. They're more movies than episodes. Psycho-pass is all around great in that disturbing way, also about the "human monster" type.

Bad pun bait accepted: Since you have already seen Another I can't think of Another recommendation.
