Okay, I know it's not everyone's taste, but The Shining (Nicholson version) scared the bejeezus out of me. ((shudder))
Nosferatu's pretty awesome too, although a bit less "scary" perhaps.
I haven't watched it in ages, but the one that really freaked me out when I was younger was the later version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. 12 year old IAJ looked carefully at those around her for weeks after that.
I just read that they're doing a remake for next year, but alas, Nicole Kidman stars.
And, everyone giggles when I mention this on VB
, but Poltergeist is scary to me too. Oh man...whew.
My least favorite award would probably go to this stellar film http://imdb.com/title/tt0088117/
Oh man, a homicidal Santa.
