WHO FREAKED YOU OUT?  Who was so twisted and scary that it disturbed you as a film viewer?  Here's a few that I found particularly upsetting:
Gunnar Hansen as Leatherface in TEXAX CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974)
David Hess in LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT (1972)
Tony Perkins in PSYCHO (1960)   
Rutger Hauer in THE HITCHER (1986)
Raul Julia in THE MORNING AFTER (1986)
Robert Mitchum in NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (1955) or CAPE FEAR (1962)

There was 2 things that ever scared me as a kid (that I remember I never got into real horror movies till Jr. High and was never freaked out by any of them by then)

1) Large Marge in Pee Wee's Big Adventure
2) Christopher Lloyd's Cartoon version of himself at the end of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

However actually there was 1 thing that freaked me out... Freshmen year of college. My freind lent me the Sleepaway Camp trilogy...
Angela's face at the end of the movie freaked the hell out of me!

Not too much freaks me out now. As a kid, I got scared of images on TV sometimes...
Charles Manson on the news ,in particular when he would mug for the camera...I watched the news alot as a kid with my Dad,and he noticed that Charlie creeped me out,so he would use that against me,as a way to make me behave: "If your nnot good,I'll send you off to live with Charlie and his girlfreinds!" The bald head chicks on the sidewalk with the X's carved into they're heads scared me even more. I don't think Dad relized how bad that freaked me out.Drunken old basterd! Drink
  Even younger...The image of Vampira,walking towards the camera,from PLAN 9,in the opening to some Horror movie program in upstate NY. And a shot of the Colassal Beast  picking up a truck scared the s**t out of me...(I was like-6 ? 7?).
 The pin head monster in the BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE...when it busted out of the closet and bite the doc scared the s**t outta me,too!
 When I saw the trailer for PLANET of the APES on TV...It was the scene when Charlton Heston is in his cage,getting hosed dowwn by the apes screaming "It's a madhouse! A madhouse!" My brother Mike used to run around screaming that in our room upstairs,when ever Dad beat the s**t outta my Ma when he was drunk. I would hide under the bed. Scared the s**t outta me!
   It's odd...all the things that scared me as a kid....now  I obsess over.

These are probably my top 3

Box from Logan's Run - A killer who responds to his murder with not only grandeur, but total ignorance of what he is doing. It was totally saddening for me to see the fate of so many successful runners, frozen by some food-obsessive pinhead.

Norman Bates in Psycho 2 - Unlike the Psycho 1 Bates, this Norman can still be saved. It's a constant battle throughout the film to keep his humanity and sanity often futilly trying to convince him that his mother is not alive despite phone calls in her voice. Another notable mention is b***h Lila Loomis who is responsible for resurrecting Norman's persona in this film in the first place.

Annie Wilkes out of Misery - Possessive hag that anything or anybody can set off, you never know what words exactly will thorw her into a blind fury of sadistic tendencies.

The final shot of Donald Sutherland from the 70's Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
Several good selections cited here, but I really must agree with Shadowfyre regarding Sutherland's final moment in INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. 

"It's a madhouse! A madhouse!" My brother Mike used to run around screaming that in our room upstairs,when ever Dad beat the s**t outta my Ma when he was drunk.
You had plenty to be "freaked out" about in real life, I can relate in many ways, including a brother describing our homelife by quoting Charlton Heston in PLANET OF THE APES ("It's a madhouse! A madhouse!") 
You reminded me of an issue of Famous Monsters magazine that my other brother had more than 40 years ago and the endpage picture of a shot from FRANKENSTEIN with the monster standing on the wedding train of Mae Clark, glowering at her (now that freaked me out!) 
You also reminded me of the last time I was actually frightened by a character in a film, Pinhead in HELLRAISER did scare me and I was no baby . . .

I'm in the same boat.  Very traumatizing for a young kid.  I didn't get into horror films until I was 16 or 17 when I started listening to the Misfits.

I'd like to add Superman III with the lady turning into an android thing to the list.  It comes out of left field in a light-hearted movie.  The evil Superman was a shock as well.

Welcome aboard allhallowsday!  Cool to see you around these parts. With regards to your thread's question, well when I was young, the following had significant impact:

Predator
When the computer sucks the women in during SUPERMAN III  and then turns her into some freaky kind of cyborg.
Those flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz.

As an adult I was deeply disturbed by the following powerful films:

STRAW DOGS
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE
LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT
DEATH WISH
THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE (original)

Karen Black in the final scene from Burnt Offerings, I can still see the look on her face as she rises out of the chair.
Donald Pleasence in Halloween, his character just seems to be driven to the point of madness.
In Northwest Passage, the one ranger who is carrying a full haversack and won't share the food with the others because "you're not hungry enough yet", turns out he's slowly eating a human head, I'll never forget that guy's laugh.

Pet Cemetary.  There were several scary moments in this film; like the little kid with the scapel, or that girl with spinal menegitis.  That girls still gives me shivers.

Yeah I forgot all about Pet Semetary.  The scream that that guy lets out just as his kid gets hit by the truck still gives me goosebumps...more so than the rest of the film.  Great editing in that scene as well.

For me, nothing creeps me out like some of the scenes in early horror films.

A few that immediately come to mind:

FAUST - When the Devil (Emil Jannings) looms over the city.
THE GOLEM - The spirit conjured up by Rabbi Lowe.
FREAKS - The freaks, particularly Schlitze the Pinhead, crawling through the mud. Also Cleo as the chicken woman.
ISLAND OF LOST SOULS - The 'Manamals', particularly the squealing pig man and Bela's Sayer of the Law.
THE OLD DARK HOUSE - When Saul finally comes downstairs, particularly when his expression goes from sympathetic to completely unhinged in an extreme closeup. Also the scene in Rebecca Femm's bedroom. "That's fine stuff, but it'll rot..."
MANIAC - Yep this overall is one of the funniest bad movies ever made, but there's a brief sequence of Maxwell crawling through an air duct that's really unnerving!
SON OF FRANKENSTEIN - Bela's Ygor, when he demonstrates his broken neck is "all right!" by knocking on it.
CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE - Old Mrs. Farren telling Amy the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
BLACK SABBATH - The old lady in "The Drop of Water".

As a tiny tot I was terrified of that tree monster in FROM HELL IT CAME!

I hate to admit it, but about the only thing on TV that really scared me to tears as a kid was an Alabama politician named Charles Woods. Woods was a fighter pilot who unfortunately had been severely burned during WWII. He was bald, earless, and had one eye. He wore a huge black eye patch. He apparently was a great hero and a fine person but whenever he appeared on TV to give a speech I would start wailing and hide behind the sofa.  My mom would explain to me what a good person he was and what had happened, but the next time he'd come on I'd be right back behind the sofa, screaming like a banshee.
