Old Horror I always find more interesting—they've got a particular sense of disturbing, and never get into the terror for it's own sake field.
Top examples, for me, would be H.P. Lovecraft (of course) and the original film of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
(Warning: TvTropes link!)
+1 for Lovecraft.
Also, The Birds. Haven't watched the movie, but the novelette was pretty good, as far as horror goes.
My full title is as follows:
Amidus "AmiDrex", His Drexcellency "Speedasaurus Drex" Drexel.
Feel free to truncate or otherwise shorten this as you see fit.
