I have been searching for something like Higurashi when they cry or I think that is its name but does anybody have any suggestions for a anime like Higurashi? Horror and mystery and stuff like that :D!?

Seconding Another. You might also like Madoka Magica, Death Parade, or Gosick. If you want something a little more adult, check out Monster.

There's also Umineko no Naku Koro ni, which is Higurashi's spiritual successor and tie-in, but the anime isn't presented so well; I've heard the manga or the original visual novels are the way to go if you want to really get the full story of Umineko.

gosick is heavy on the mystery.
blood-c is also heavy on the mystery and horror. (Its good, but not anything like the others in the blood series.)

Higurashi is one of my favorite Anime's. Some similar shows (Psychological/Horror) would be Another, Corpse Party, Elfen Lied,Ghost Hunt, Hell Girl, Tokyo Ghoul and Mirai Nikki (Future Diary). I haven't seen Future Diary yet, but it's supposed to be excellent.

Another and Elfen Lied. And of course the spinoff of Higurashi, Umineko no naku koro ni

On Crunchy I'd actually suggest the Severing Crime Edge. It's very very dark at times. I'd also agree Another should be at the top of the list. Dusk-maiden of Amnesia is another possible.

I almost forgot. If you like Higurashi you'd most likely like Ookami Kakushi (it's over on Hulu to watch for free too). It's by the creator of Higurashi and similar to it in many many ways.
