Horror anime

Just saw all 12 episodes of Another and was wondering if anyone can suggest a good horror series like that?

Seconding Elfen Lied and Shiki. School days isn't horror no matter how you look at it.
I'll add Jigoku Shoujo.

Umineko no Naku Koro ni also had horror content, even though it has more supernatural elements than Another.

Here's another hint. Go to the top of the Suggestions thread and click the "Search this Forum" link you'll see in the bar above the thread listings. Enter "horror" and click Go. You'll get a number of alternatives. Here are two relatively lengthy threads with a number of suggestions:

http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=111187
http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=110195

The second link is a thread specifically about suggestions relative to Another.

Horror isn't a very common anime genre, but there are number of shows that have similar thematic components. For a lengthy thread about about shows with "dark" themes, I recommend: http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=30970

How about Kara no Kyoukai - The Garden of Sinners. It's a seven OAV series, but the stories are trippy and creepy as hell. The stories don't take place in chronological order, but you'll have to watch all seven to connect them.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni has horror elements, but the plot and story can be convoluted at times.

Horror/suspense/supernatural:
Aoi Bungaku Series - not exactly horror but covered some sad and seriouse themes with some blood. Set of small, separate stories.

Death Note - not horror but great suspense with super natural stuff

Elfen Lied
Ghost Hunt
Hundred Stories
Jigoku Shoujo
Monster - not horror but great suspense/detective series. Has things to think about.
Shiki
Umineko no Naku Koro ni

I really recommend these 2 for sure.

Real horror is hard to find, a bit of gore is findable, but real horror is hard.

I haven't found a worthy "horror" show so far, just good shows with a nice dark atmosphere or just slightly thriller/action shows with messy scenes.

You could try Pet Shop of Horrors. Only 4 episodes. Not that scary, but does provide a few moments of creepiness.

Took the suggestion of Hirugashi no Naku Koro ni. I'm hooked, watching the Kai series now hoping to get some questions about the series answered. This is what I am looking for, would would be the next Horror I should try that is same psycho horror type like this one?

Watch Sci-Fi Harry and Shigurui : both fit your descriptions.

I'll insert my standard plug for Nakamura Kenji's Apothecary stories, Bakeneko and Mononoke. Hakaba Kitarou is worth a look as well, though it's more comedic than horrific.

Writing down all the suggestions, but get the feeling I've been spoiled now, since I absolutely loved Higurashi.

You are comparing it to Higurashi on the basis of just one episode of School Days?
