For me, it's Junji Ito's "Uzumaki".

It hit the right spot in right time, leaving me with severe likeness towards his other works, that I generally love to this point with only one exception - Tomie 1&2.

How about You people? ;3

Ito's Uzumaki. Hands down.

The fact that it's a manga that feels like a Lovecraft story all it's own is original enough, but it also shows it's own great style that nothing else has done before. I really got 'sucked into' this story.
GET IT?

lol, movie
Shuichi is my favorite character. I don't really know why, but he is.

I must say... he rings the bell.
Also - movie = wut. It was unfullfilling and badly finished. Though several chapters were very close to the manga original and didn't fall off from Junji's view of reality.

Btw, any info on upcoming Junji's screenplays? Apart from crappy tv-drama adaptations, there was supposively some plan for one of his "horror world of JI" stories, though press was silent about wich one.

I liked MiikeTakashi's version of MPD Psycho even better then the original manga. ;3

As for Berserk - personally, I can't see why it would be anything related at all to horror/thriller/psycho-killers/omg_aliens_with_fangs genere.
It's still fantasy with lots of gore, but not horror-like at all in my opinion. Though please elaborate, since I might have missed the point totally (I have only read 2 volumes of manga and watched-then-dropped terrible anime version). ^^"

i think the best horror manga is Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. it's weird, scary, unique and the story is really good.

It's hard to choose between Higurashi and Jisatsu Circle, but I think it's the last one. JC has a very deep and shocking story, and I really liked the ending.

How did You liked the movie adaptation then? I found it largely missing the point that manga had, beside flashy "artsy" scenes in redroom and great camera work. :)

As for movie adaptations, does anyone know what h-manga's got adopted for movie script? I would love too widen my knowledge about that particular issue.

From what I know:
- Jisatsu Circle -> "Suicide Circle" [2002] (http://www.mandiapple.com/snowblood/suicidecircle.htm)
- Lovesick Dead -> "Shibito no koiwazurai" [2001] (http://www.mandiapple.com/snowblood/lovesickdead.htm)
- Uzumaki -> "Uzumaki" [2000] (http://www.mandiapple.com/snowblood/uzumaki.htm)
- Long Dream -> "Nagai yume" [2000] (http://www.mandiapple.com/snowblood/longdream.htm)
- Eko Eko Azarak -> "Wizard of Darkness" (aka. "Eko Eko Azaraku") [1995] (http://www.mandiapple.com/snowblood/eko1.htm)
- Tomie (1->3) -> "Tomie: ??????" (multiple crappy movies circling around same script)
- Rasen -> "Rasen" (aka. The Spiral) [1998] (http://www.mandiapple.com/snowblood/rasen.htm)

Share ploz, if anyone has any info on other titles. :3

Ah, I didn't watch it yet :) I was completly satisfied with the manga, and the fact that the storyline is different didn't wake in me much urge to watch it. But I think I'll do it sometime, because I'm a little interested as well, and I want to create my own option :)

Parasyte by Hitoshi Iwaaki is my favorite. I haven't read the Higurashi manga yet but it's one of my favorite animes :)

So far, Mail is the only thing I've read that's remotely scary.

No doubt,"Uzumaki" by Junji Ito.The whole manga was so strange and amazing that at one point I was just staring and thinking "WTF?!THIS IS LIKE WOW...".All of Junji Ito's mangas are great,I liked "Gyo" and "Flesh coloured Horror" very much too.
LF a husbando; Preferably tsundere with a nice bootay.

Monster by Naoki Urasawa. It certainly counts as a horror to me, and it does it so masterfully.

Uzumaki here too, it's a very creepy one. I thought some parts of the last volume seemed a little forced and not as scary, but otherwise, awesome.

Also, some other Junji Ito short one where the people all heard holes shaped like them in a mountain call out to them and they all went inside the holes and came out twisted, that was creepier than Uzumaki if you ask me. Forgot the name, grr!

Uzumaki is easily my favorite. Just the right mixture of off the wall gonzo ideas, weird Lovecraftian concepts, and stomach turning moments. Great, great stuff.
