Corpse Party: Tortured Souls brings you gore on a silver platter, well, a silver platter containing dismembered limbs, rotting and beheaded corpses, and a lot of cringe. It’s the perfect package for horror genre enthusiasts or a perfect gateway anime for those trying to get into the genre.

If you're looking for an anime that has a lot of gore in it, you are in for a treat!
[Some spoilers, I advise to watch first]

This 4 part anime really get's straight in with the storyline, I watched the game-play first then the anime adaptation, and they both link really well. There's scenes noticeably the same which makes it fun to watch.

The storyline is very slurred, everything happens quickly which makes it feel like the anime ended too fast. The clues characters get seem to come from nowhere, we don't fully get to see where they find information.

The art in term on how well illustrated read more

SHORT REVIEW

Elfen Lied, Higurashi, Another think you know gore?
I introduce Corpse Party

Corpse Party is a COMPLETELY horror anime.

Basically a group of students suddenly find themselves in an older version of their school which is haunted. They try to get out and survive.

Just to point it out first this only contains 4 episodes with lengths of 30 minutes.
So there will be mysteries unsolved and no character development. The only way to enjoy this show is to watch the here and now.

The sound was extremely well done. The screams, blood bursting out and of course the crazy laughs.

Corpse Party contains (IMO) the best read more

Naming an anime "Corpse Party: Tortured Souls" is like making a promise to the viewer that you're going to deliver with exactly that. It's easy enough to expect the opposite; after all, for some reason a lot of would-be horrifying, gory anime are hit with the unfortunate black bars of censorship, or the convenient off-screen carnage of PG-13 justice, or otherwise just have a mechanism to protect your eyes from seeing violence, even if violence is the reason you're there. Sometimes the Blu-ray edition arrives months later to fix that, and sometimes it just remained unfixed, forever covered in a shining white light across the read more

Anime: Danganronpa: Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei - The Animation
Horror anime based on games where people are trapped in schools. It has similar motifs to Danganronpa, but a lot more gore. 
reportRecommended by XxXTsubomiXxX
Anime: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Horror anime involving a group of students where many people die gruesomely (but the gore is much more extreme in Corpse Party than Higurashi). Some characters are driven insane and just about everyone acts unnaturally due to the extreme psychological pressures and fear at one point or another. They both have some supernatural elements.

Anime: Gakkou Gurashi!
Gakkou Gurashi, like Corpse Party, is a violently horrifying anime that wears a moe-mask at all times. 
reportRecommended by Lolicon
Anime: Elfen Lied
Extremely gory and mature anime (Elfen Lied has more nudity while Corpse Party has more gore). They have some supernatural elements as well as many psychological elements where characters go insane due to fear, anger, etc. They both have dangerous, murderous little girls.

Anime: Pupa
Lots of blood, gore and questioning authors sanity.
