Lock the Doors and Keep the Lights On

As Halloween approaches, here is a question: What is the scariest novel you've ever read?

My own nominees, in order of scare-inducement, would be:

The Mist by Stephen King
Ghost Story by Peter Straub
Dracula by Bram Stoker

Red Dragon by Thomas Harris.

This one terrified me to the point where I wouldn't read it at night.

Could be called the prequel to Silence of the Lambs...
