Many of us have a love-hate relationship with Netflix. The streaming service that allows us to fall for shows and then quickly takes them off of their website. However, fellow anime lovers have a bit of luck. Netflix has a pretty extensive list of anime on its website. But for horror fans, there's a limited option. Many anime that include supernatural beings such as witches, demons, and ghosts, don't always end up being Horror Anime, but usually action or even romance. Luckily, we've managed to compile a list of the best anime on Netflix that should fill your need for horror and gore this Halloween season.

'Death Note'

When you hear "Death Note," you might think of Netflix's live action film. We're ignoring the film because it quite honestly was nothing in comparison to the anime. The anime follows Light Yagami, a Japanese teenager who comes across a notebook that allows him to kill anyone he has the name and face for. The anime truly takes some dark turns and has some gruesome murder scenes.

'Blame!'

In "Blame!," the main character, Killy, must adventure through an endless technological labyrinth.

Killy's goal is to stop a rogue A.I. This anime is sure to put you on your toes and is full of suspense, as well as the scary thought of artificial intelligence betraying us.

'Ajin: Demi-Human'

This anime focuses on Kei Nagai. Kei is a student who faces death early on in the show- but doesn't die. Kei is an immortal Ajin, and the government is imprisoning Kei and other Ajin to conduct very horrible experiments on them. Once free, Kei must decide if he wants to get his revenge.

'Castlevania'

This anime is an adaption of the game "Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse." It's an extremely well-done adaptation and hugely expands on the plot of the game. There's a good amount of fight scenes, but also a great amount of gore and horror as the townspeople are torn apart by Dracula's minions.

'Gantz: O'

"Gantz: O" is not an anime series, but a CGI movie. The main characters, Kei Kurono and Masaru Kato, are dead, but halfway brought back to life. It is now their duty to hunt down aliens with other people who have recently died. Definitely a horrific idea for what's in the afterlife.

'Attack on Titan'

This anime is full of naked, humanoid giants who eat regular human beings. It's full of blood, gore, and death, and it's a huge hit. "Attack On Titan" follows the path of three teenagers, Eren, Mikasa, and Armin, as they prepare to fight these giant titans.

It's hard not to care about the characters you meet, but beware, they may not live for much longer. This anime quickly became a fan favorite and is easily one of the best anime on Netflix. As its story is still developing, fans just can't get enough.
