After being a wimp my whole life and doing everything I could to avoid scary movies, I'd like to now slowly build up my tolerance to be able to handle them to some degree. What I really dread about them is the feeling I get afterwards of someone or something being hidden anytime I'm in the dark and coming to get me, and that's caused me to avoid watching movies with friends and miss a lot of great fiction. What are some suggestions of "easier" scary movies that I can use as a stepping stone before I start watching the really scary stuff? Books and other types of media are also welcome.

So I just watched a movie that has scared me and now I don't want to go to sleep because I think the aliens are going to abduct me. What do you do to get over the initial "OMG TERROR" reaction and irrational fearsfollowing seeing a scary movie? [more inside]
