Oh, [[{{Franchise/Nasuverse}} Nasu]], sometimes he can outdo [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion FREAKING]] Creator/HideakiAnno in terms of sheer messed-up-ness. Overall dark coloring and [[NothingIsScarier constant use of silence]] doesn't help things either. Ghosts that make people commit suicide, human puppets, bizarre carnivorous murderer, and a girl (our protagonist no less) who has a very twisted sense of morality and constantly repressed desire of murder; [[SarcasmMode clearly what you see in a kid friendly series!]]

* Any death in general, due to really colorful depiction of blood.
!''Overlooking View''
* Shiki investigates a haunted building. For a [[NothingIsScarier good, chilling half a minute]], really creepy music and equally creepy giggling are heard throughout the building and then the ghost shows up right behind Shiki and her hand gets possessed and tries to throw herself off the building and she had to cut her hand off.
* Being mentally controlled to throw yourself off a building simply because an apparition wanted to get your attention...
!''Murder Speculation Part A''
* While taking a walk, Shiki finds a corpse lying on a massive pool of blood. Her reaction?
-->''She bends down and touches the blood flowing on the ground; streaks it across her lips.\\
The blood drips down and her body trembles in ecstasy. The first lipstick Shiki has ever worn.''
* And some of the details of the murders are really horrifying, especially the one where the corpse got dismembered and the limbs were set around the head to look like a flower.
* Later, when Mikiya goes to visit Shiki, he stops. The camera focuses on the path for a second, then cue scare chord and blood flowing down the cracks and at the end of the path, stands Shiki in front of a corpse, with possibly one of the most horrifying DissonantSerenity expressions ever.
* After Mikiya spies on Shiki's house one last time, Shiki shows up right behind him, wearing a blood-red kimono, HiddenEyes, no expression, and a knife in her hand. Mikiya runs, keeps tripping himself and sprains his ankle, with Shiki [[TheSlowWalk walking very slowly toward him]].
->'''Shiki:''' I want to kill you.
!''Remaining Sense of Pain''
* The very first scene: Fujino is being ''gang-raped!''
* Asagami Fujino's power itself; it can twist anything clockwise and counterclockwise, and she only used it against human limbs except the bridge in the end. Special points for a poor chap in the dock: he got his limbs twisted off, one by one and the accompanying sound effect of both screaming and limbs torn off is very unsettling
* Fujino's inability to feel pain, which comes back via a blow to the back with a baseball bat, causing a constant pain that's far worse than anything the viewer can imagine.
!''The Hollow Shrine''
* Shiki trying to [[EyeScream black out her eyes]] due to her newfound Mystic Eyes of Death Perception. The sound effect that follows the action also puts this in {{Squick}} territory.
** And this was prompted by Shiki starting to see the Lines of Death for the first time, seeing them in everything, and every''one'', in her hospital room, complete with a vision of everybody ''falling apart''. As badass as taking advantage of those lines makes her, that is a ''really'' rough way to get awakened to that.
!''Paradox Spiral''
* For starters, due to the high amount of [[{{Gorn}} blood and gore]] in this film, some of the fights themselves are nightmare fuel.
* In the beginning of the movie, Enjou Tomoe has a dream where his mother kills him. Cue to him stabbing his mother repeatedly. The squishy sound is bad enough, then he pulls out her intestine and holds it in his hand, feeling how warm it is. Once you know the context, the surprising part is the '''[[BloodlessCarnage lack]]''' of blood which later gets explained with the conversation between Shiki and Tomoe in Tomoe's fake apartment. Right after that, he runs away from a bunch of thugs. After he gets cornered, a thug tries to sock him. He retaliates by [[EyeScream stabbing his eyes]], with his bare fingers.
* When Shiki and Tomoe visit Tomoe's real apartment, they are greeted with the pleasant sight of Tomoe's parents' rotting corpses and an equally-disgusting kitchen. The flies don't make the scene any better.
* The mere thought of the viewers putting themselves in Tomoe's shoes is scary enough. How would you feel if you realize you're just a carbon copy of your former, dead self and had to [[FateWorseThanDeath relive your death]] every day for the rest of your artificial life?
* The scene in the basements of the apartment:piles and piles of [[BrainInAJar Brain Jars]]. Tomoe's expression after finding his, and his arms fall off, revealing clock-cogs mashed with flesh.
* The scene where Mikiya is getting tortured and having his head bashed into a wall doesn't make it any less painful to watch knowing that the character performing the deed is an {{expy}} of Alex Delarge from ''Film/AClockworkOrange'' and Willy Wonka.
** Alba's KarmicDeath? He gets torn apart by what can only be described as an EldritchAbomination that looks like a centipede with lots of mouths. The moral of this chapter: You do not, under any circumstance, mess with Touko.
!''Murder Speculation Part B''
Who is the person in the above picture? He is Lio Shirazumi, the true culprit of Part A, the villain of Part B and [[HorrorHunger quite]] [[ImAHumanitarian a]] [[AxCrazy brutal]] [[TheSociopath one]].
