I would have to say, House on the Haunted Hill, featuring Vincent Price.
IMO. If it ain't black & white, it ain't old.
IMO. If you're born after 1952, it ain't old.
The word "old" must be subjective to you youngsters.
Here's what my dictionary defines old as:
You remember getting the mail twice a day.
The milk man delivering milk to your door.
Adding coal to the furnace.
Walking 3 miles to school uphill, both ways.
2 cents for a carton of school milk and .25 cents for the school lunch.
A neighborhood cobbler.
Husband one income household.
Having indoor plumbing.

I was a kid, we only had a Black and White TV, so that was how I saw it when I saw this, though it was shot in color. The strange music score and sound effects alone were enough to scare the bejeesus outta me, but throw in a Robot, a strange planet, weird technology and an invisible monster, and it was terrifying to me.
Forbidden Planet....yeah, it scared the stuffins outta me as a young kid, and just the music alone today brings back an instant memory of terror.....

The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.
The Fly (1958) --- "Help Me, Help Me!". Of course I am talking about the original but the newer one with Jeff Goldblum was pretty good as well.
I Shoot Birds With A Canon.
John Carpenter's remake of "The Thing".........
The part when the guy that died on the table opened his chest and chopped the docs' arms off was too much........ As was the part when they torched the monster, only to have his head separate from the burning body, sprout spider legs and antennae from the severed head and start skittering away........

The original Alien.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Going back a few more decades, Frankenstein scared us as kids.

Misery was better as a book than as a movie, same with The Shining.
My SIL gave me Misery to read when I was in the hospital with a broken leg (compound fracture, infected...bad).
I felt the writers pain when the nurse hobbled him!
It could be worse!
"To my mind it is wholly irresponsible to go into the world incapable of preventing violence, injury, crime, and death. How feeble is the mindset to accept defenselessness. How unnatural. How cheap. How cowardly. How pathetic." Ted Nugent
