And the one I find most disturbing is "Human Centipede".
The Day After Tomorrow....
Yes. I know it isn't Nightmare On Elm Street, but those movies never did/do scare me. The above movies have a chance of actually happening and if I dwell on it long enough it does send a shiver of fear up my spine. They will keep me awake thinking about it if I let them.
My husband on the other hand.... Motel Hell all the way. Farmer Vincent's Smoked Meats has a special place in HIS (our) heart. ugh.
Stephen Kings "It"...

The Exorcist still holds up in my opinion, it is a film that they should never remake.. The 2 one was forgettable at best..The prequel was ok in parts, depending on which version you watched. The 3 one on the other hand is a great film on it's own with amazing performances. It has one of the best jump scares out there..
Martyr(s) is a recent film that people rave about..I liked it, was a good challenging watch but I am not sure that it warrants the praise it gets.
A Serbian Film is about as bleak a film as you can get.. When i finished watching that I pretty much wanted to throw myself off a bridge..
Hellraiser I and II just for the mythology...Was just reading Clive Barker will be writing the relaunch of that and it will star Doug Bradley...
Poltergeist oddly enough also holds up for me..it still does what horror is meant to do and that is create a visceral response...
Rue Morgue did a list last year of the 200 Alternative Horror films you have to see..lots of good films on there..Rue Morgue 200 Films to Seeedit on 2013pAmerica/Chicago3109ppm by opethPA because: (no reason given)

I personally don't think it gets any better than Stephen King...
...and so many more.
And that's without his books. Do people still read? The book "IT" scared me to death. I slept with a nightlight for months. LOL. But my favorite will always be Insomnia.
