Recommend me some media

So I love themes of
Serial killings
Mental damage due to major traumatic events
Cold hearted killers
Random murder

I liked things like utopia and deadman wonderland. If anyone has any other ideas

Do you want books shows or what.

There is a you tuber called Rob Dyke and he has a show called Seriously Strange that is pretty cool.

All media
Anime, movies, TV shows, manga, books, comics etc

There is also a really good book called In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. You should give that a read it is a bit long but worth it.

Elfen lied is ok, but it tries to shove so much "disturbing" into one that its kinda... silly.

I like disturbing
I like gore
I like the exploration of mental issues caused by extreme trauma

Then you should like Elfen Lied.

Mirrai Nikki too.

Those two are "mainstream" disturbing. Ive seen some cool underground stuff that would make you cry blood ;)

Maybe ask a doctor?

There is a Korean film called I Saw the Devil which is about a violent serial killer... Excellent movie

To piggy back on these animes, Shinsekai Yori is a great psychological thriller.

I really really tried to enjoy that one but it was kinda... Meh ;-;

It moved extremely slowly and the viewer really has no idea what's going on for some major plot lines until much later. Luckily this was an "in-between" anime for me so I kinda zoned a bit when watching it. Made the "twists" and "wtf" parts stand out that much more I guess haha.

You should read Tokyo-Ghoul / Tokyo Ghoul:re if you havent already. It's a great manga and has all these things you mentioned.

I just finished watching the anime too, and while being really good it has lots of things missing so i would strongly recommend reading the manga first.

While not quite as disturbing as your taste, I too like media about the downtrodden elements of society. Here are a few movies I have seen lately.

White Rabbit - Army vet w/ PTSD becomes a hacker.
He Never Died - Henry Rollins as a vegetarian vampire that gets pissed when he is forced to drink blood again.
The Thin Blue Line - Documentary about a man wrongfully jailed.
Sicaro - US gov dirty tricks in the war against Mexican drug cartels.
American Hero - Not really good, but I loved it. Loser guy wastes his super powers getting drunk and high all the time.

Hey, they let me out of the mental hospital
What happens next is there fault

If you're interested in documentary style I'd highly recommend these:
The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst
Making a Murderer
Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father
Paradise Lost

For non-documentary:
Fargo - Movie and both TV Seasons
No Country For Old Men
True Detective - Season 1
Dead Mans Shoes
Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
Ichi the Killer
Memories of Murder

I hope that will suffice.
