Music that scares the crap out of you

Scary music. There are songs and compositions that, either by design or by sheer happenstance, inspire pure terror and fear. They have a "pucker factor" that cranks up to 11.

What pieces have that effect on you? Share them here, so that all of us have a chance to experience existential discomfort and dread!

I will be the first to share a composition that terrifies the bejeezus out of me: "Threnody for the victims of Hiroshima", by Penderecki. Hell in the form of sound, using nothing but strings.

Enjoy! (For certain values of "enjoy", that is). Here is the link:
