"Don't be afraid of the dark" starring Kim Darby
The other was a Rod Serling's Night Gallery episode called The Doll (couldn't find a clip but image loaded).
But the ones that really scared me were the old Hammer Horror classics...Frankestein's Monster, Dracula, The Wolf Man, etc.

The movie received mixed reviews, but I never really understood why. I think it was well produced, competently acted, and the lighting and cinematography are excellent. Unlike so many horror movies these days, it's not all about blood and gore. Instead, its more psychological... at least, for the most part.
If you like good horror and you haven't seen it, borrow, buy, or rent it!
Just don't watch it at night, or when you're alone...
The trailer doesn't do it justice, but I've included a link to one, anyway.
For those of you who have seen the movie, I'd be interested in what your favorite scene is. I think that one of mine is when Harley is going out of his mind and screams at the witch, "Damn you, old woman! DAMN YOU!" and she responds with the chilling chuckle, "I already am, Ed Harley! I already am..."
Here's the poem by Ed Justin, Pumpkinhead
[CENTER]Keep away from Pumpkinhead,
Unless you're tired of living,
His enemies are mostly dead,
He's mean and unforgiving,
Laugh at him and you're undone,
But in some dreadful fashion,
Vengeance, he considers fun,
And plans it with a passion,
Time will not erase or blot,
A plot that he has brewing,
It's when you think that he's forgot,
He'll conjure your undoing,
Bolted doors and windows barred,
Guard dogs prowling in the yard,
Won't protect you in your bed,
Nothing will, from Pumpkinhead.

I had nightmares about the clown toy in Poltergeist after seeing it (I was quite young at the time). Sometimes I wonder what my mom was thinking letting my sister and I watch it.
My sister had to get rid of all her dolls for a *long* time after that.
