What King book do you find scariest?

I'm going to have to say IT is the Stephen King book I find the scariest. The book has my favorite scary theme (having no one to turn to who can help you) as well as one of the best baddies ever in Bob "Pennywise the Dancing Clown" Gray. A monster that only children can see. A monster that has control of an entire town and has for centuries. A monster that uses adults (unbeknownst to them) to do its bidding. A monster that feeds off of the fears of children and turns into whatever scares them the most before it kills them. Shit. That's frightening. There are a lot of scenes that stay with you too; my favorite is with Beverly and the blood in the sink. Brilliant scene. To this day I still refuse to look directly into drains; who knows what might be down there, looking back up at me?

Lol my Comm TA was talking on Friday about how she's still terrified of IT. I've never even read or seen it but I...no. I'm sorry. I can't do scary clowns. Even if they're Tim Curry. :(
