The Exorcist without a doubt. Tried to be cool and watch it with my 16 year old friends when I was just 13. Vomited the whole way through and didn't sleep for a very long time.
It still terrifies me to this day, I don't know why I put myself through it!

Also The Collector - Scared me for weeks

"It" - Tim Curry played that brilliantly.

I found the first Alien scary when I first saw it. John Carpenter's The Thing was scary in a good way and very gory.

" The descent" Not a great movie but crawling through tight caves with monsters on your heels brought out the worst claustrophobia in me.

That one got me too...bloody frightening idea being trapped in caves with mutant cannibal things. Even worse than a night in Bur Dubai

Invasion of the Body Snatchers is the one that I remember scaring me as a child, the 1970s remake with Donald Sutherland, I probably watched it in the late 70s or very early 80s when I was very young.

I was terrified watching Face Off. I was too young to be watching it and the thought of being trapped is a fear I have....so being trapped in someone else 'face', in jail, with no hope was utterly, bed-wettingly terrifying.

That film with the person buried alive makes me feel sick at the thought.

I'm no where near old enough to have gone to the cinema to see it!

The Conjuring....yes watched it last week. Fairly good.

It reminded me of a cross between the Amityville Horror and The Exorcist. (probably more because it is set in the 70s in a big old house.

The copy I watched wasn't very good quality but I'll definitely watch it again when I get hold of a proper HD quality version.

The fact that it is based on true events and the movie has been confirmed as being accurate to the real events by the woman who lived it in real life makes it significantly more scary.

While on the topic of movies that scared you!
This is called a sinkhole and for some reason it just gave me goosebumps!
