It is the anime version of “Corpse Party: Tortured Souls,” the famed horror video game. In order to reach a wider audience, horror stories were adapted to the manga and anime mediums. It’s one of the best horror animes I’ve seen, in my opinion. Horror, violence, gory gory blood—everything you can think of is there! Heavenly Host Elementary School, the horrible school in this anime, is a place you’d never want to end up.

3. Elfen Lied
This show was heartbreaking and harrowing in equal measure, and that’s how I would characterize it! Gory content makes it difficult to watch. The storyline, which is filled with cruelty and drama, is very moving. To sum it up, Elfen Lied is a scary production that has the power to shatter emotions in the name of terror and melodrama.

4. Gakkou Gurashi!
“Gakkou Gurashi” is quite comparable to “Corpse Party” in terms of violence and horrifying fatalities because it is set in a school. In terms of intensity and extremeness, “Gakkou Gurashi!” falls short of “Corpse Party,” but its cruelty-based realism and unsteady mindset approach nonetheless creep and horrify.

10. Boku dake ga Inai Machi (ERASED)
There is a similarity between Corpse Party and Bokudake ga Inai Machi’s plot if one pays attention to the details of both. That’s right—serial kidnappings! It’s horrifying to contemplate and horrifying to behold, but unlike Corpse Party, ERASED kept it in check and resolved it effectively. Erased, on the other hand, is more of a mystery-thriller program than a horror film, and it’s surprisingly good.
