It’s October and that means it’s time to get into the spirit of the season, and obviously nothing gets you into the Halloween mood better than horror. Unfortunately when it comes to most live-action horror films, there’s only so much that can be done and shown, but thankfully of all things, Anime can cross the line with story, gore, and intriguing storytelling. So for every day this month, I’ll be featuring a unique Anime that fits the horror genre that you can most likely find on any streaming service. Let’s numb our minds with Paranoia Agent.

Paranoia Agent (2004) is about the chain of events caused by a bat-wielding boy on roller skates called Lil’ Slugger who attacks people seemingly at random and involves a large cast of characters who are all affected by his actions.

The anime is based on a novel of the same name and is a psychological thriller showing in an extreme case how mass hysteria can alter reality. This 13 episode of Ghibliesque animation really messes with your mind as the series progresses as the lines of what’s real and what’s not become severely blurred.
