I'm not a big fan of Koontz, but that book is creepy as HELL. I'll echo Stephen King; I read It a little too young, and the book sitting on my shelf takes me back to my childhood bedroom reading it with a flashlight and scaring the bejeezus out of myself.
Jaws really got me as a kid, too. I'm still afraid of sharks today. I've never jumped like the moment when that head popped out of the sunk boat.
Recently, it seems scary movies are all about blood and jump scenes, but a couple that really stayed with me recently were Insidious and, you'll laugh, but I thought the original was horrifying, Paranormal Activity.
