Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. I’m your Anime Expert, Ash and in this article, I will be giving you my list of 5 horror anime to watch this Halloween season! This list will be perfect for horror fans of all kinds but don’t worry, I also will be releasing a Halloween-themed list for the faint of heart as well!

First up on the list is:

Death Note

Death note is a thriller/shounen anime that was released in 2006 that follows high school student: Light Yagamine who discovers a notebook from the shinigami realm that is able to kill whoever’s name is written down. Naturally, this frightens the population. Some worship him as “Kira” while others, like world-famous Detective “L”, try to identify and stop him.

Parasyte (Kiseiju)

Parasyte is a horror/sci-fi anime released in 2014 that takes place in modern-day Japan when tiny worm-like alien parasites arrive to take over human hosts through their ears and noses. However, a high schooler named Shinichi intercepts the parasite who failed to take over his brain, so now the parasite resides in his right hand and is given the nickname “migi” ( which means right in Japanese).

High School of The Dead

Highschool of the Dead is an action/horror anime that was released in 2010 that takes place in present-day Japan when a group of high schoolers is struck by a pandemic that turns humans into zombies. They must abandon any moral principles just so that they can survive.


Berserk is a dark fantasy anime released in 2016 that follows a man named guts, ”the black swordsman” Who was once a wandering mercenary now on a quest for vengeance

Junji Ito Collection

This anime is a series of stories from the most famous horror manga artist released in 2018. Just the art style alone would give anyone the chills.


As a bonus for being such a cool reader, I have included one bonus anime on this list! That anime is The Promised Neverland.

The Promised Neverland

The Promised Neverland is a dark fantasy anime where a group of orphan children discovers that they are being raised as livestock for demon consumption, and plan their escape.

And that brings us to the end of this list! So tell me, have you seen any of these shows? Let me know in the comments below! Feel free to check out other videos/blogs by our many talented creators as well!
