Anime just isn't scary. Manga can be unnerving, but no anime has ever made me scared.

I don't know, visual novels do the trick for me.

but then again visual novels aren't allowed on /a/ and if I post one anyway I'll get a warning.

So.....yeah.

Anime cant do horror well due to censorship and the episode format.
It also sells like crap.

Bakeneko arc of Mononoke was really spooky.

You might check out Boogiepop Phantom. In some ways its more sci-fi or fantasy, but I remember it having a horror feel to it.

Its kinda stupid.

No, but it's really damn good so you should watch it anyway.

It's pretty slim pickings for good horror anime. I guess maybe try Shiki. The first 12 or so episodes have a couple of genuinely unnerving moments. Thing to keep in mind is that the anime takes a pretty radical shift in tone away from horror about halfway through.
>>
>>113369407
The twisty-house arc of Ghost Hunt.

That episode.
>>
No on mentioned Ghost Slide yet.

Horror is by far the hardest genre to make well. Up to this day I have only ever seen one horror movie that was actually scary (not just jump scares) and deserved it's genre. Still waiting for a horror anime.

Shigurui may be a borderline case, but it evokes a fucking relentless sense of dread from start to finish like few things I've ever seen.

>>113374006

>in a ghost-infested other-worldy school, a la Grave Encounters
>not horror

That's pretty much the only straight up traditional horror anime I've seen, and the story feels really disjointed like too many scenes from the game are missing.
>>
>>113384040
No. No one has seen Flowers of Evil.
>>
>>113384040

That's not horror either, it's just broody emotional teen drama.

Shinsekai Yori only has a slight touch of horror later on, of a slightly ghost girl variety, but it's still well-done, and also a good series in general.

Boogiepop Phantom is Lain Lite, basically. Slightly more comprehensible, but just as atmospheric and unnerving. Would also recommend.

Shiki isn't really horror so much as it is gruesome, but it can be unsettling, and again the plot is great.

Those might not be totally up your alley, but at least give Boogiepop a shot. It gets forgotten a lot here.
>>
>>113383068
Horror as a genre can be a really great vehicle for psychology and symbolism or just white-knuckle entertainment, but yeah it is pretty hard for a movie to be "scary" without resorting to shock value or jump scares.
>>
>>113388184
And yet you seem to have no problem watching anime, which probably has a much higher shit-to-quality ratio than film
>>
>>113372813
Honestly I thought the Bakeneko arc in Ayakashi was better than any of the arcs in Mononoke.
>>
>>113369407
You need to look at 80's anime for this

vampire hunter d

Devil man

80's were Demon / gore anime

ofcourse a classic is ....

Urotsukidoji II: Legend of theoverfend
>>
>>113390919
both are good as long as try not to hate it.
>>
>>113390745
Not to mention it has a 10/10 soundtrack

>>113390919
There both shit, most of us were just raised on the tropes of western media and so they don't come off as hamfisted as anime tropes.

>>113390990
ahh demon anime
