I'd love to watch a horror/creepy anime in the style of Another, Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni, Flowers of Evil, Elfen Lied or Serial Experiments Lain. Do you have any suggestions? I love psychological horror.

I'm thinking about watching Jigoku Shoujo but I can't find it online anywhere (at least not without registering somewhere and I don't want to do that). So if you have any anime to recommend it would be awesome. I really like the art work in animes such as Flowers of Evil and Serial Experiments Lain.

Hellsing and Hellsing Ultimate. It's one of the anime I'd watch.

Two of my favorites:

Boogiepop Phantom
Shiki

And one that's pretty good:

Ghost Hound (this is from the same director who did Serial Experiments Lain by the way)

I'd second Ghost Hound, watch it at night for maximum creepiness.

If you like psychological horror then you might want give SCHOOL-LIVE! a try.

At first glance it really doesn't look like a horror show but it is.

Watch ALL of the first episode and you will see what I mean.

Read or watch Ajin: Demi-Human. This one is fantastic, although I don't know how the anime is.

Parasyte This one definitely fucks with what humanity really is, and is probably in my top 3. It is less horror and more psychological though.

Hellsing is also extremely good as well, this one is gory-er then the others so far. Nothin like shootin down vampires and ghouls.

Actually screw all that, READ BERSERK! This is the one you have actually been looking for. No no, ignore the animes. They are good, but the Manga? It takes a big ol steamy dump on the anime's.

These are all great though. Hope you find something you like

You could watch Corpse Party ! It's extremely atmospheric and disconcerting, and the gory visuals will truly unnerve you. But I will say, the actual story and characters are extremely tiresome, and they aren't the reason you would watch the show. It's more of a squirm-in-your-seat kind of thing. Lots of fun! ^^

I've moved this over to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum, but did you forget you already started a very similar thread the other day that was also moved to Advice, Info, Recommendations?

In the future please don't post requests for recommendation in the Anime forum. Also, please don't start more than one thread on the same subject.

Parasyte! Or maybe Corpse Party.

Oh, I'm sorry, I don't remember starting a similar thread the other day. Thanks for moving it though!
