6. High Rise Invasion (Netflix)
Perhaps this Halloween you want to switch it up and fill this spooky season with blood and guts instead. If that’s the case, then checking out High Rise Invasion on Netflix is definitely the way to go!
The 2021 series tells the story of a young girl trapped in a mysterious world where killers with masks are hunting her and those like her down. She must figure out how to escape this horrible world as well as uncover the truth behind these masked villains if she wants to leave with her and her brother’s life, but doing so is much easier said than done. All this and more in the official trailer down below.
Netflix currently has only one season of the anime series available to watch on its platform, which means that this is the perfect addition to your Halloween list.
7. The Promised Neverland (Netflix/Hulu)
In speaking of escaping with one’s life, The Promised Neverland is a show that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seats as it depicts the lives of children (yes, children) doing their best to escape a farm where they are being raised to be eaten by menacing monsters.
Emma, Ray, and Norman must use their strengths to take not only themselves but all of the other kids out of this hell hole, but the adults managing the farm are faster, stronger, and smarter than they are. How will they escape with their lives? You’ll have to watch to find out. More on the official synopsis via Hulu, below:
"While attempting to return a stuffed animal to a fellow orphan who left for a new home, Emma and Norman stumble upon a shocking revelation that changes their view of their orphanage and their caretaker, Isabella."
8. Death Parade (Hulu)
So far, we’ve listed some pretty terrifying titles, but if you would prefer to have something a little less frightening and a little less gory, then Death Parade is sure to be the perfect option for you.
This anime series takes a deep dive into the afterlife and how the higher powers that be decide on who gets to live the rest of their lives in paradise and who suffers in the world of the nameless and forgotten. It’s heartwrenching yet petrifying as you observe the types of people who stumble in the afterlife and the awful things they did to wind up dead.
Still regarded as one of the best one-season anime series, Death Parade is sure to not leave you unsatisfied.
The last anime series on this list is an absolute no-brainer as its creator is said to be the greatest horror manga artist of all time. Can you take a guess? Read on to find out if your prediction was right.
