Any horror anime you can think of worth watching?

If it's on CR that'd be better but even if it's not I can deal (it's just so hard to give up my luscious HD :P). And I'm pretty well versed in the horror genre so the usual easy options like Higurashi, Elfen Lied, Another, and more recently stuff like Parasyte I've already seen. So I'm not really looking for beginner animes in the genre so much as any possible shows I happened to overlook or which aren't well known (but deserve to be in your opinion).

Thanks for any input!

Unfortunately there isn't much horror anime on crunchyroll, and it sounds like you've probably seen the few decent ones anyway. The only other one I can think of on crunchy is The Severing Crime Edge which I thought was just okay. If you're looking for a slightly different horror,you could check out Requiem From the Darkness, a brilliant underrated horror anime (not on crunchy though). Also you could check out the horror anime group http://www.crunchyroll.com/group/Psychological_and_Horror_Anime , I've posted some horror anime with short descriptions in the forum section of the group. I think you have to join the group to see it, but you should anyway , It's a cool group haha . There might be a few that you haven't seen yet.

Here are a couple that seem to go under some peoples radar.

SCHOOL-LIVE! - This show is most definitely not what you might think it is if you just go by the art. Watch ALL of the first episode and you will see what I mean.

Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World) - A far future SF show that feels more like a dark fantasy. A group of kids come across some of their societies dark secrets and try to survive them.

Double post I know but I've gotta give you special thanks as I most certainly would never have found this one, even if I'd seen it I'd have passed it by thanks to its outward appearance. But this is exactly the sort of psychological horror character study I love over sheer gore. That lingering feeling that something's constantly off is something I rarely find and when I do it's something to be treasured, and this is one of the better renditions. I just sat there and watched every episode currently released in no time flat, was brilliant.

So again, sorry for the double post but I really felt I had to thank you for bringing it to my attention

Wow. I can't believe Gyo actually got an anime adaptation, even if it is just two OVA's. Of all the manga I've read that's probably one of the ones I would have expected to get an animation the least, it's just...so out there even for Japan.
