Synopsis:

It is believed that to consume the flesh of a mermaid, means that you will never show signs of age, and live forever. However, many cannot handle its taste and become demons for eternity. Towa is a woman whose thirst for this flesh consumes her, as she was made only partially immortal by drinking the blood of a mermaid years ago. Unable to cast her demons aside, she destroys everything in her path on a search for this legend.

If you enjoy the horror genre, I really don't see you wouldn't like Mermaid Forest or Hundred Stories. Dark, gritty horror tales showing the dark side of humanity... I really think if you like one, you'd like the other.

Umezu Kazuo no Noroi

Two groups of girls experience the horror of the unknown in two very different ways: Masami has begun to have terrible nightmares after the arrival of a new transfer student, and a separate group decides to enter a haunted mansion alone at night. Their lives will be inexplicably changed forever once they discover the truth behind these strange events...

It was a tough decision to recommend Mermaid Forest (OVA) or its TV counterpart, but I think the OVA is more appropriate. Both OVAs are short, older and are perfect horror titles to pick up if that's what you're in the mood for. There's twists and turns in both and a good amount of violence - definitely fans of one would appreciate the other.

Vampire Princess Miyu

Vampire Princess Miyu

As a spiritualist, Himiko investigates events of the strange and paranormal. While dealing with an exorcism of a child, she encounters Miyu, a child-like vampire who sends stray Shinma, demons, into the night. The Vampire Princess Miyu OVAs follow Himiko as she tries to track down Miyu and discover her secrets... but does she have other motives?

Miyu and Mermaid Forest both have a similar foreboding feeling to them as you watch. You are not quite sure what will happen next but you know it will be creepy and that feeling keeps you watching until the end. If you enjoyed that in one of these shows, you will also enjoy the other.
