Top 5 horror anime you must watch for Halloween

There is a lot of anime out there for the horror and gore fan. Trust me, I would know this seeing as I am one of those fans. But today, in no particular order, we’re going to go over a few anime series that I personally think would be a great way to get you in the spooky mood for Halloween. There may or may not be some gory pictures. You have been warned!



Boy, this a classic. Without spoiling much, this bloody, crazy anime will definitely make you cringe. This is obviously a perfect way to feel right before Halloween, right? If you don’t have the time to watch, then hey, look below and you’ll find a video that sums up Higurashi in 30 seconds. You’re welcome.



This show is fairly new, and the episodes are still being released. We haven’t got much of the series yet, but that doesn’t matter. It’s still good enough to make it onto this list! Just by watching the trailer, I could tell that this anime was going to be something I fancy. Well, my intentions were right and now I’m sharing it all with you! So watch the trailer and agree with me. DO IT.

High School of the Dead


Because who the heck doesn’t love zombies? Honestly. That’s all I really need to say in order to make you feel spooky enough to watch it, isn’t it? Zombies… Did it work? There isn’t much to say about the series itself, other than the fact that it’s bloody, gory, and perfect for this time of year! Check out the trailer and see if it tickles your fancy.

Now, one of my personal favorites…

Deadman Wonderland

No, don’t watch the English dub. Are you crazy?  I’ve watched this anime countless times, and I couldn’t get used to the English dub. So if I were you, I’d go with sub. Anyway, this anime is practically about blood. If that doesn’t make you want to watch it this October, then I don’t know what will! We follow the story of Ganta, who is accused of murdering all of his classmates and is sent to the world’s most messed up prisons. It’s pretty twisted. JUST THE WAY I LIKE IT.

Last on the list…



Why? Because well, it’s Hellsing, that’s why. Don’t make me go into detail over this gem! Because if you haven’t seen it yet, stop what you’re doing and go watch it now. Ahhh, I love a good vampire anime.

There are so many more anime series that would fall onto this list, but these are just some of my favorites. If you have any anime to recommend to others, please do so by leaving a comment! Let us share our horror knowledge together.
