I think there is a thread where ppl write what kind of anime they're looking for and then other members can write suggestions, but I can't find the thread? Or maybe there isn't such a thread to begin with? If there is, please give me the link to it, and I'm sorry for making this (unnecessary?) post.

However, I'm looking for an anime to watch. Something similar to Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni, Another, Serial Experiments Lain, Elfen Lied, Flowers of Evil... you know what I mean? Something to creep me out! Preferably something that I can watch here on CR, but it doesn't have to be.

Instead of a single thread, we now have a whole Advice, Info, Recommendations forum where you can request recommendations. (I've moved your thread over there now, so all you need to do is check for new replies. The forum is located in the "Crunchy Connections" section of the main forum page.)

Shiki is a pretty good one if that's the kind of stuff you're looking for. A really creepy atmosphere with some moments that are really disturbing. If you can, make sure you watch the OVAs (21.5 and 22.5). They aren't essential, but really add to the story.

Re:Zero just came out last season, but it's very dark at parts.

Thanks for moving the thread, that was the place I was talking about.

Well I would recommend Berserk but its not as good as the manga. Though it is definitely dark.

Parasyte might work too

Parasyte and RE:Zero are good, although I am not sure if they would supply exactly what you are looking for.

If you are up for reading out of the manga section, I would highly recommend "As The Gods Will."

To me Madoka Magica had a very dark atmosphere once you get to the 3rd episode, but more on the psychological side than the horror side.
Death Parade is also awesome.

On Crunchy...
School-live (don't let the Moe art-style fool you it's very dark)
Yuki Yuna is the Hero (same response here as to School-live)
Interlude (boy meets girl in a dark demon-infested world devoid of human life)
Terraformars (Mars mission goes terribly wrong for astronaut heroes trying to thwart an Earth invasion)

On other sites:
Future Diary (normal boy and yandere girl try to survive a killer game together)
Beyond the Boundary (half Youkai boy falls in love with the hunter charged to kill him)
Umineko When They Cry (from the creators of Higurashi)
Dusk-maiden of Amnesia (Cute on the surface/dark on the underbelly)
Ookami Kakushi (from the creators of Higurashi/Umineko)
Speed Grapher (a photographer vs a devil-worshipping cult)
Loupes=Garous (animated feature: four rebellious girls trapped in an Orwellian Society)
Psycho-pass 1 and 2 (gets eerie at times)
Red Garden (serial killer anime)
They Were 11 (animated feature: 11 astronauts trapped on a space station with a killer creature)
Tokko (demon invasion of Earth)
Ryoko's Case Files (think X-Files)
Box of Goblins (grotesque serial killer on the loose)
Psychic Detective Yakumo (the serial killers make it personal)

Alice in Borderland (Survival game with the contestants facing killers with chainsaws etc)

I'd go with Parasyte as well...

Heard Berserk is quite good with the thrills too.
