Horror anime is a specific anime genre that many love. There are tons of choices out there for fans to enjoy. Here are the top horror anime that appeal to the most people that love this genre of movie.


Tokyo Ghoul


This is one great choice if you are just starting out attempting the best horror anime movies. It is about a city where ghouls are in a constant battle with the residents of the city. The main character is a geek who loves books and ends up in an interesting situation where he must decide how far he wants to go into the ghoul world.


Elfen Lied


This one centers around a young protagonist that is part human, part creature. She tries to understand how to live between both groups peacefully and in the most inconspicuous way possible.




Set in 1972, this is a story of a middle school student’s decent into a class of students that will make her question her very existence in the world. Full of teen angst, it offers a great choice for horror anime.


Deadman Wonderland


On a class field trip, the main character Ganta is lured into an abandoned amusement park where the odd things that terrify most people come to life before his eyes. Instead of the Red Queen, he must handle the mysterious man in red.


All of these choices are fun and leave you on the edge of your seat as you watch the anime horror unfold. That is just the tip of the iceberg though.
