15 Unmissable Horror Anime Movies, Ranked
15. Gyo
“Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack” is an adaptation of Junji Ito's "Gyo" that shows a monstrous fish with legs invading a Japanese town. It’s a must-see for horror comedy fans.
14. Empire of Corpses
This gothic film is set in an alternate 18th-century England where corpses are reanimated and used as laborers who don't think, feel, eat, or get paid.
"Empire of Corpses" is a quintessential steampunk adventure that’s also deeply emotional and upsetting in its exploration of what it means for a corpse to have real autonomy.
13. King of Thorn
In this film, a group of patients wake up from medically induced comas and are attacked by horrific creatures. It uses both 2D and 3D animation to great effect.
12. Cat Soup
This animated short film is a surreal tale about grief and family, all represented by two cats. It has gorgeous animation but is full of jarring imagery and violence.
11. Wicked City
"Wicked City" shows a human and a demon in an alternate world trying to protect humanity from a radical group of demons who don’t want peace between the races.
The film has a grotesque style, an eye for shocking violence, and a strong willingness to break taboos. It’s a hyper-sexual, hyper-violent joint that isn't for the faint of heart.
