didn't see a thread like this in the catalog, so yeah.

post books, tv shows, movies, webseries, creepypasta, art, anime, manga, etc.

right now i'm reading A Trail of Blood by Shuzo Oshimi. it's easily the most real-feeling portrayal of child abuse i've seen in fiction. it fills me with dread like nothing else i've ever read before. highly recommend it.

No. 12890

I saw Be My Cat: A Film For Anne last night. Very good character horror. Shit really fuels the female experience of walking down the streets alone.

No. 12892

damn i've been waiting for a thread like this.
op can you recommend any manga that is highly similar to "a trail of blood"? i read it and it's really suspenseful.

>Horror thread

FINALLY
I need me some more good recs for horror

Just read A trail of blood! Interesting but very uncomfortable. I hope it ends well…

No. 12999

op here, i'm glad other farmers wanted this thread. tbh i was surprised there wasn't one already. here's some horror stuff i've enjoyed at some point or another, off the top of my head.

movies: Rosemary's Baby, Perfect Blue, The Shining
games: Sound of Drop - Fall Into Poison (idk why i like this, i hate visual novels), not really horror but I think Majora's Mask has a lot of elements that make it feel really unsettling and hopeless
manga: The Drifting Classroom, Uzumaki, Dragon Head, Fuan no Tane, Franken Fran, Petshop of Horrors, A Trail of Blood
misc: i think SCP 3001 is kinda unsettling

Seconding ALL of this, what an amazing solid list.
I think umineko and higurashi both fit under the VA horror category but umineko is better for the mystery element, it spooked me.
Top tier horror classics:
Texas Chainsaw (original)
Not overly violent and it feels like you're watching this all unfold in real life because the events are something that can happen in real life.
The exorcist, just love this film and how fucking creepy the production was. I don't think the film is scary but it's really an art and for some reason no one will watch this with me.
Scream (original)
I love slashers but this is like the funniest one.
The Burning
Another slasher but I think the murder scenes are well done.

>Cayleigh Elise
Her videos are really good if you haven't already watched her stuff! She does really in-depth videos about cases and helps bring awareness to lesser-known missing people. I highly recommend her content!

>Lazy Masquerade

A channel I really like listening to. He covers things like paranormal stories as well since you're interested. Also, he's got a soothing voice lol

>Jim Can't Swim

They have this really good series called "The Most Compelling Police Interrogations" which is scary imo. Their videos are really long (30-50 minutes) but if you're looking for that, then this is a really good one.



And a guilty pleasure of mine is
>Kendall Rae
I usually watch this when I'm bored, not really horror or that creepy tbh. She does some true crime and missing people videos but don't expect high-quality research or visuals.

The Promised Neverland is also really good. the direction is great, it makes me tense and stressed as it really feels like they have limited time. the added touch of the episode titles just being the date has made me really invested in an ongoing anime for the first time

i'm a huge fan of horror but i don't like pointless gore in horror, so i stay away from those when i know about it.

i went into Martyrs blind. In the middle of the movie, i was confused because it looked like it was ending but that couldn't be possible because how much time there was still left of the movie. My GOD that movie became suddenly so fucking disturbing and god damn good.
The shit that was done had a purpose and wasn't just torture porn. It has become one of my favorite movie too but i also my last gore movie.

I wish I liked Umineko and Higurashi. I tried to play both VNs and dropped them (Umineko just in the beginning, Higurashi after I got through the first two parts). Goddamn it, I wanted to enjoy the mystery and creepy atmosphere but the forced cringe weaboo jokes and badly done slice of life made it impossible. The cooking contest in Higurashi is everything I hate in manga/anime, same with protagonists sexually harassing their cousins for funsies and heroines walking around in fetish fuel outfits for no reason whatsoever except to give people something to fap to… oh, and let's not forget about the loli retard character. No matter how great the mysteries, I would not recommend the When They Cry series to anyone who is not a hardcore weeb.

No. 13436

you didn't finish umineko so i can kind of give you a pass, but you really have no idea what you're talking about. i think it's really stupid to say you won't recommend stuff when you didn't even actually read it.

File: 1552068735518.jpg (125.57 KB, 600x900, Interior-Cover.jpg)

so i saw this movie called Interior (not to be confused with The Interior directed by Trevor Juras) at a local indie film festival in like, 2015 i think?

this movie scared the shit out of me, and i know everybody says this but i can usually take horror and gore pretty well! did not sleep that night. i couldn't find this move anywhere for years until they released it on itunes in 2017. i made my bf watch it and he couldn't sleep that night haha. it's really interesting imo, and there isn't really a lot of jump scares and it's more psychological (which is what i enjoy in horror). i think some scenes near the end were a little too much, but overall this is definitely my favorite horror film and recommend watching it!

It does not matter how good the mystery is if you have to invest tons of hours to get to the good parts while drowning in cringey, trashy bullshit.
Face it, your fave animu horror games are not for everyone, even if they are adored by weebs. I felt like offering a counterpoint to the Umineko/Higurashi worship in case someone expect serious horror that can be enjoyed by normal people. I know I made the mistake.

I put off reading Dragon Head for a while but it was a really good survival horror manga and I finished it in two days. I’m just not sure if I would read it again because it’s incredibly bleak.

NTA but higurashi and umineko aren't even horror. I totally get not liking them if you don't like anime, and i get not liking anime, but you're talking like they're objectively horrible, which they're not, they're just objectively anime. And you're fine not liking anime.

Weird, they are being recommended and listed as horror everywhere, from MAL to vndb. The anon above also recommended them in a horror thread, for horror fans.
I do like anime/manga, but when it's free of shit tropes…>>14716 is a wonderful example (though I suppose you might consider it thriller kek).

One of my favorite mangas is franken Fran. It's a horror-comedy that explores everything from plastic surgery, sex change, and giant multi-person cancerous growths, etc…

It's not the type of manga to give you chills, but more like a grotesque parody of human nature.

Antichrist is a big favorite. I went through a phase where I was watching a lot of critierion collection (mostly their horror) and I fell in love. Every time I’ve watched the movie I felt like I’ve watched it from the point of view of a different character.
