Try Thirteen Ghosts. Yes they play it on Syfy, but it's still the scariest movie I've ever seen.

How about a horror series? A movie ends after a couple of hours. A series just keep going and going (for more fun, you may say). I suggest The Walking Dead. It's one of the first zombie movie/series that I actually was on the edge but at the same time loved it.
