I love reading horror manga the best, but I need some recommendations.
I loved Doubt Rabbit (Reminded e so much of SAW movies).
Something like that, but with a good plot as well.

Dark Metro. So far as I know only one volume is out in the States now, but it's good.

as I forget to mention Pet Shop of Horrors and Uzumaki.

Seconding Uzumaki. I had no faith the horror genre could be done correctly in the manga format until I read Uzumaki. It's genuinely creepy and disturbing.

Hirugashi no koro ni, or when they cry in english. Love the anime, haven't read the manga yet, but planning to get it from the book store soon...

Dark Metro is about a subway, and Pet Shop of Horror... yes, it IS about animals, sort of.

I saw a few eps of the anime, and yeesh, creeped me out. I don't trust bunnies anymore.

Try Mirai Nikki. I don't know if it's really horror or not but there's murder and crazy killer chicks with axes. It's pretty trippy.

I've just finished the first volume of "Seeds of Anxiety" which is a collection of various short horror stories and it's great, definitely recommended. The drawing style and imagery used give off an excellent atmosphere of creepiness, but don't take my word for it, see for yourself.

Uzumaki... I agree.... if you really want to you could try "Ghost Hunt..." but it's more funny than scary... funny at how hard they try and fail at making it scary...

Meisou Kuiki (on manga fox)

Summary

As a child, Amasawa Rei had attended Shirohato Park Institution. After her parents were killed in a car accident, she lived at the institution and befriended a boy. She doesn't remember anything from the time she spent at the institution, not names, not faces, nothing, only that she and the boy shared a secret--a secret much darker than she thinks it is. Now, as a new student at Shirohato Academy with her old classmates from the Park, she is assailed by fragmented memories of the past. What was the secret? Why does she feel driven to find that nameless boy? And most importantly, why doesn't Rei remember anything from her past?

Since so many people have already said Petshop of Horrors...*though I suggest you skip the anime and read only the manga*...I'd suggest Elfen Lied...or maybe Hellsing. Blood the last Vampire is pretty good, too. Tarot Cafe isn't...exactly horror...maybe it somewhat is...but it's very good. *thinks* Vampire Hunter D is also neat, if you don't mind nudity. *chintap*...Hmmm..Can't think of anymore for now...

I'm surprised to see someone has already mentioned Seeds of Anxiety. I'm going to second that recommendation.

Fuan No Tane (Seeds of Anxiety) is an excellent collection of short stories done in a minimalist style with little or no dialogue. It reminds me strongly of Lovecraft, but with the creepy, grim atmosphere of Japanese horror.

Elfen Lied is not horror. It's more like romance add a bit of horror elements and some grotesque parts.

Zangekikan by Ochazukenori

I read it in French so I wouldn't know what the title would be in English but you'd translate it literaly, it would be The Horror Mansion.
I liked it a lot x3.
