hm. huge toss up between several. here are highlights:
Night of the Living Dead
The Exorcist
The Innocents (based on Henry James' "The Turn of the Screw")
The Others (I think I liked it so much because I was so shocked at how good it was...).
Evil Dead (The film that defined 'high camp')

Snoopy--I agree with you on the Kingdom.  A creepy, intriguing movie (acutally, a miniseries wasn't it?).  The sequel was equally satisfying.  Lars van Trier's mark cannot be duplicated.  

So, anyway, my favorite horror movie?  

The Haunting (1963 version, of course).  Scary stuff.  :o

Close seconds (real close)

1. Dawn of the Dead (um, the original, not the remake)
2. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974 version--gawd, it's really sad when we now have to add these disclaimers.  Too many darn remakes)
3. Night of the Living Dead (1968 version)
4. Suspiria.  
5. The Beyond. (Fulci rules!)
6. Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things.  
7. Lisa and the Devil. (Bava!!)
8. Dellamorte Dellamore.  (Cemetery Man in the hideous U.S. release)
9.  Let’s Scare Jessica to Death.  
10. Ringu
11. Don't Look Now

I'm gonna have to agree with Poltergeist.   Also the Shining.
I haven't seen the Exocist yet, though I really want to

You havent seen the exorcist?!? you really should, recommend it highly, is probably one of my favorites because its always disturbing no matter how many times I've watched it :o

Hmm, if you were to ask my favourite Western, Sci FI, Comedy, I could tell you right away, but horror, I have seen so many and enjoy a good horror flick anytime.  So if I had to pick just one, the one that sticks out the most is A Nightmare On Elm Street (the first one)

Is the exorcist still disturbing if I'm not a catholic/christian?  Because I've heard a lot of the scares come from faith issues.

i'd say the scariest movie i've seen is the supposed non-fictional documentary, but actually fictional propaganda film,"bowling for columbine", by the anti-establishment and socialist radical michael moore.

Mine's Night of the Living Dead. I was so scared after seeing that movie I left the lights on a few nights.
