I love Uzumaki and a couple of the Tomie/Flesh-Colored Horror tales, and the first few volumes of MPD Psycho are among my favorite graphic novels, from any country, in any genre, ever.

That said, I'm surprised Suehiro Maruo isn't coming up more often here - in terms of technical skill alone, he's one of horror manga's best, most distinctive *artists,* and his work is typically disturbing on multiple levels. His characters are often ostracized, if not brutalized, by their families/peers/society as much as they're attacked by individual loonies or ghoulies, and are often deeply psychologically damaged. Sometimes they readily pass along their trauma. Add to this the particularly audacious level of transgression for which Maruo is known, and you've got a body of work that is definitively horrific. I'd probably call Mr. Arashi's Amazing Freak Show his "best," but what Ultra-Gash Inferno lacks in story it makes up for in the (no pun intended) visceral impact of its imagery. You can't... UN-SEE those pictures.

I thought Hideshi Hino would be getting a little more love, too. He's usually kind of funny and cartoonish, but "Laughing Ball" and "Panorama of Hell" are pretty unsettling.

Also want to cast a vote for the first arc of Kazuo Umezu's "Left Hand of God, Right Hand of the Devil" - for its FIRST TEN PANELS alone!

Haven't read much of those yet, but I prefer Doubt and the all popular Uzumaki/Spiral. ^^
The Ring 1 wasn't bad either, though it took me some short time to get used to the art.

Smile, Shuichi!

1) Bio Meat Nectar
2) Count Cain- Godchild
3) Umineko no naku kori ni
4) Battle Royale
5) Mouryo no Yurikago
6) Berserk
7) Gantz

BTW These are in no particular order.
I like my horror to have more than just blood, guts, and all decapitated body parts.
I actually want a good story-the art should be clear so that I can actually discern what is going on- the characters should have a personality or something that make them distinct and the characters personal development is also a triple plus-lastly I found these quite memorable.

warau kyuuketsuki by maruo suehiro - discovered this fairly recently - by far the most nuanced, atmospheric, and creepy vampire manga ever! - not only that, beautiful artwork...

Shintaro Kago's series where that princess makes hell on earth and tortures people. It was so funny if I remember correct, Kago can make some good dark comedy. :D

Junji Ito is awesome, Uzumaki and Tomie are a couple of the most unique horror stories, manga or otherwise I've seen/read.

If I'd finished reading Higurashi, that's probably what I'd say (since the anime is one of my favourites).
If I could pick just one of Junji Ito's manga, that's probably what I'd say, but they're all too good.
So Ibitsu! It has everything a horror manga should. I loved every second of it!
