Looking for some good pyschological horror Anime's.
I've watched Higuarshi and I loved it so I want something with a bit of gore and crazy/fucked up characters and/or situations.

It's exactly what you're looking for.

EDIT: There's also another season of Higurashi.

Mirai Nikki and Hellsing are two you should take a look into as both have their gore and psychological parts. Hellsing is more about the gore though.

I'll check out Shiki.
I've seen Mirai Nikki but didnt mention it cause I didnt think it was i that genre. I allways thought of it as more of a Battle Royale.

Please never bring up Higurashi and Another in the same sentence again.

OP, you can always watch Higurashi season 2 even though it stops being a horror.

Just popped into my head but Psycho Pass was a really good anime that hasn't been out that long. If you like psychological and a bit of horror then go for this

They're similar to an extent and both have the same feel to them, but for me I actually enjoyed Another more (except for the last 2 episodes, which were one big mess), but that's because I didn't like Higurashi.

The right thing to do is check out season two to understand what was going on in season one, unless the series was spoiled for you.

I'm not shitting on your opinion, but in terms of mystery, plot, characters and pacing, Higurashi is superior in every way.

Nothing was spoiled actually. I just got tired of playing the "try to be surprised" game after 11 episodes so I dropped it. I watched the movies instead, at least they had cuter girls. Basically the designs were one huge turn-off that I couldn't continue, and I'm one of those who hate 90% of moe and lolis (and their generic designs).

Fair enough. How was the live action adaptation?

The first one was the first arc, it was better than the anime imo. The 2nd one was new material I hadn't watch before, but I believe it had no conclusion to the overall mystery and it deviated a lot from the anime and source material (the 2nd and 3rd arcs namely). I also lost interest around halfway through it.

No. Not psychological and not horror. It introduces characters only to kill them three seconds later, before we care about them and it kills characters only to resurrect them three seconds later, because we do care about them. In this way, it's the antithesis of true horror.
I have no signature.
