I didn't find IT very scary myself. I think its cause I saw it when I was fairly old, so I found it more amusing than anything else. I did think Silence of the Lambs was pretty creepy. No real gore, but it sure makes your skin crawl.
A good movie I'd suggest is the Skeleton Key. Its more suspense, but it has a plot to it all, one you'd never see coming. I do remember being scared out of my wits at times in it and it is pretty creepy.
Also, Untraceable is good. You need to have a good stomach for that one, it involves some serious torture scenes. The good thing is that the plot is really good and its consistent throughout the movie. You never forget what is going on when the gore is happening, which is something a lot of horror movies seem to have missed. Gore should always fit into the plot in my opinion since what good is it to simply kill people left and right with no explanation?
