ITT: Good horror shows
Pic 100% related
I can't decide if Another was horror or comedy.
It actually had a bit of a creepy atmosphere at the beginning but they managed to fuck it up quite properly.
Still fun as shit though.
the beach episode fuck up the entire series
more like dark toned story that slowly falls apart until the ending
I know I shouldn't of laughed. But that dude getting crushed by the pillar made me lose it. Almost every death made me lose it. I'm a horrible person.
this. It was pretty creepy initially.
What defines horror when it comes to anime?
Spooky at first, gradually going full derp. The fiinal arc with the psycho arsonist hotel owners and gleefully murderous classmates was top leltacular.
The pies would indicate that it's leaning towards a comedy for me.
it's intended purpose
what are you 5 years old?
Quality thread right here OP.
Whats wrong with horror anime anon? Theres blood and tits horror anime like Elfen Lied for me. And theres 2deep4you boring shit like Shinsekai Yori for hispster /a/ssholes like you!
>not being 5 years old
>Laughing at guys getting killed
>Not fapping to girls getting brutally killed
I was gunning for the shiki at the end.
>repeating things I said and not saying anything else
Bastards got what they deserved.
>Hipsters like boring things
Learn what a hipster really is and not what faggots like you refer to as a hipster.
Ghost Hound has some creepy moments.
It seems Yami Shibai is going to get 2nd season on Summer 2014.
I just love how you are ignoring my main argument which wasn't even an argument in the first place, it more a of a joke. btw, im pretty sure you guys are the faggots if you get offended this easily.
Anyway, Shiki had some good moments here and there like when they kill all the vampires at the end, but I was disappointed by how gay the villains were. lol
Gantz manga the best
i couldn't hold my shit during the 3rd mission
but it is boring as fuck ;_;
>I was only pretending to retarded
Fuck off back to wherever the shithole you came from.
>i was just p-pretending to shit up the boards
>hurr u mad lol
God, please be a metatroll.
what is this
>Yami Shibai is going to get a 2nd season.
I wonder if it's going to be as good as the 1st season.
A horror anime.
not I was not pretending nor trolling. I do like Elfen Lied. And I do think you are hipsters who like Shinsekai yori. I just wanted to have a conversations. And yes, you guys are mad because otherwise you wouldn't be nit picking everything I say.
Yeah, 3rd mission was best.

I went in expecting horror and found one of the most stupid things I've ever seen.
In other news, the ONLY legit horror anime (as in not relying on gore or violence) in existence is Yami Shibai as far as I know.
Other than that there are a number of shows with horror elements, but aren't or don't try to be spooky in the least, such as Mononoke.
I hope the 2nd season of Yami Shibai isn't going to rely on gore and violence.
I recommend Ghost Slide, it's very spooky.
Magnetic Rose had a great atmosphere and sense of foreboding.
I say it would be Evangelion since it is a very horrorible show
And that one with 13 5 minute episodes, Yami Shibai?
Urban legends typically don't, so I doubt it will.
Second this, GS is one of the only memorable horror animu
Man, dat ending.
Ctrl+F : ghost hunt 0 result
Fucking amazing dub. I wouldn't expect the sub to be anywhere near as entertaining
Ghost Hunt a shit. Ghost Slide on the other hand?
Nao was best girl
Too bad she got such little screentime
I prefer the Japanese series (non-anime) "Ghost Stories from Japan" that covers urban legends (essentially what Yami is based on)and such. Much more enjoyable.
xxxholic was always too eery for me.
Call another anime is shit can't get your option better ,son
>The Japanese Doll
So, can we all agree that animation is the worst medium for horror, with the novel medium being the best?
game is best
what are you 5 years old?
stop bullying us anon-kun ;_;
The show wasn't really scary, it was only a little creepy in the first few episodes. Still entertaining though. Mei a cute.
Games are rarely properly scary. Jump scares don't count, I mean shit that's genuinely terrifying for a prolonged period of time. Thus far, only Amnesia: Dark Descent and Penumbra Black Plague have actually made me properly scared. And they still kinda shat the bed on Machine for Pigs.
I actually agree with you. Horror is the only thing that games actually excel at genre wise.
Machine for Pigs wasn't actually supposed to be a horror game though. Also Silent Hill 1-4 is pretty terrifying along with the first two F.E.A.Rs. Vidya actually doesn't devolve to hard into jump scares as films do. The S.T.A.L.K.E.R and Metro games are also really great when they do horror stuff.
When it comes to horror, nothing beats a good book.
>not naming Silent Hill
or the mirror in your bathroom.
I will admit that I've never played the Silent Hill games, so I fucked up there. But I have heard the first few were amazing. The first FEAR was great as well, but all the later installments disappointed me.
FEAR 2 has some pretty good stuff in it I think. It's not as good as the first, but I would saw it's bad or even mediocre.
fear 2 was boring as fuck for me, and it relied mostly on jump scares
>never played a SH game
do it now, go play SH1-4, dont bother with the rest
There is no genuinely scary anime.
Or animated show.
Even movies haven't had any good scare stuff in decades.
And don't even try to find a good scare in videogames.
The art of horror is so fucking lost it's mind boggling.
>it relied mostly on jump scares
Both had a ton of jump scares, but I don't think either relied on them.
>Even movies haven't had any good scare stuff in decades.
>And don't even try to find a good scare in videogames.
Maybe if ignored the majority of horror within the past decade or so you'd be right
but there was no atmosphere on it, the gameplay was bland as fuck too, felt like you was a spess marine in a brown environment shooting things while some ghosts were going "are you scared yet, are you?"
Name me some. No smartassery here. I'm actually looking for some.
Video games should be pretty obvious and there are quite a few in the thread. And this year has been a great year for horror in film. Lords of Salem was one of the best horror films in ages.
Amnesia 1 was pretty scary before the prison part
SH1-4 were great for horror
the shit ton of horror indie/mods on PC was also great
Literature and Videogames are the only two medias that horror works because its always scarier in your mind and immersion
What's this and why can't I find it on nyaa, bakabt or TPB?
hmmm rob zombie
>Amnesia 1 was pretty scary before the prison part
Absolutely fucking this.
Read book, you could learn something.
Read a book, you could learn something.
Fuck me how do people enjoy horror literature? I like the atmosphere and creepy setting/story of horror, but it really lacks the panic feeling of other horror media.
you can even learn something doing nothing
right after they start showing the monster it goes to shit fast, because it becomes a try and error thing, sure you run from that thing with your heart beating in the first try, but after the 5th, its not scary anymore, you are just thinking "ok I fucked up, gonna try that other path now"
I need the sauce where the Yami Shibai histories come from. The Umbrella woman made me shit myself
because atmosphere is better than BOOO ITS SCARRY
besides only videogames can do panic right, movies are pathetic on doing that
>You can do something when you do nothing
See, if you ever bothered pickingup a book you wouldn't be this stupid.
Horror is the most fun genre, but if you're still scared of them when you're 16+ years old then something is wrong with you.
Scary horror can work only in video games.
That fucking episode
>some korean horror movie about twins is on the theaters
>me and some friends go see it
>they are both terrorized and one is on fetal position on his seat
>trying to hold my laugh the whole movie because of how funny it was
It was a nice movie
y anon ;_;
if you want good horror then wait for junji ito's one shots to anime adaption
Maybe try watching the movie before judging it. I don't even like Zombie's films, but Lords of Salem was great. It's the only one of his films I actually like.
what did you say anon?
Korean horror is actually pretty damn good.
CG ruined it.
Gyo was not scary in the least. Also the anime anime doesn't really capture Ito's art style very well.
Indeed Gyo and cat diary are the most funniest things Ito ever did
Boogiepop phantom was pretty creepy
among several other things, yes
it usually is, but the moment I saw the strings holding everything floating around the screen, and saw my friends shitting themselves in fear, I just lost it
Was the movie "A tale of two sisters"?
The Curse of Kazuo Umezu is fairly good.
Yami Shibai episode 7.
>A tale of two sisters
yeah, thats the one
he clearly said "oneshots"
I thought it was kind of boring. I dropped it around ep 6 or 7 I think. But I loved the episode of the girl who loved the world.
It's natural. Whenever unintentionally funny moments happen in a serious horror story, be it anime, film, whatever, you just got to let it out and laugh.
Could I ask for some suggestions on horror literature?
That's already one of my favorites, actually. But thanks.
I was just dicking around, but you're better off asking /lit/.
not literature, but ever so often /x/ makes good creepy pasta
the original goatman one was great
>liking crappy pasta
oh god I loved the ending of (the OVA in) your pic, I giggled like a little girl.
what scares you?
I feel like dumping my /x/ stuff.
Silent Hill 1-4 especially the 3rd game for the spooky factor. 2nd game is good but not really scary.
that was the easiest hoax to spot if you have any basic human biology knowledge, people back than were just so much more foolable
>That feel when got a boner watching Begotten at the scene where God mutilates himself with a razor
It was the biggest why boner I've ever gotten, but it felt so goddamn good.
Except that there is no horror anime. i don't fucking get it either Japan is fucking great at horror shit. At least there is manga
