1. Devilman Crybaby (Netflix)

The Netflix series Devilman Crybaby is an anime that left audiences everywhere flabbergasted at how this show went from a seemingly normal show about a boy living a relatively mundane to a supernatural beast who attracts ghoulish otherworldly creatures.

Without a doubt, this is a show that is sure to leave you terrified of the dark and the unknown that may lurk within it. But if you don’t believe us, the official trailer down below is sure to convince you much better.

Four years later, this anime series is still a sight to behold, but the next anime series on the list is yet another reboot that simply gets even spookier with time.

2. Higurashi When They Cry (Hulu)

The anime adaption of this chilling series first debuted back in 2006 and was quickly hailed for its unnerving plot twists and its use of heavy gore and violence. Because of this success, the show went on to release 7 more spin-offs with its most recent installments airing earlier this year.

Hulu currently has every episode of Higurashi When They Cry–Gou available to watch on its platform as well as brand new episodes of the series’ successor, Sotsu. However, before you watch this title, check out the official synopsis below to learn all about what you can expect.
