If you want to get totally creeped out, read "The Hot Zone" by Richard Preston. 10,000 times scarier than anything King ever did because it was true.
What's it about?
It's about some clown who couldn't spend 2 seconds googling an answer on his own.

I've never read anything that really "scared" me. I guess you could say that the scene inside the hotel in, "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" by Lovecraft, kinda made me think "oh shit this is really bad and will not end well". And as many of his stories are, it didn't really end well :Q

Exorcist. But I was about 10 and we were camping. So it was dark and scary.

That sounds freakin scary! But maybe too unrealistic...
