Morricone has written some absolute beautiful scores for the genre - Orca, Exorcist II: The Heretic, and What Have You Done to Solange?:

Jerry Goldsmith's score for The Omen is of course a classic, but I've always had a soft spot for the theme from Link:

I also have a soft spot for this "fanfare of terror" type of composition by Harry Sukman:

...And I could name dousins more... But, in terms of sheer terror, nothing beats John Carpenter's score for Halloween, so my vote goes to him.
