Honestly board games aren’t very scary. Unless there is a game about getting laid off from your job, losing your house, and watching your family go hungry. That would be scary.

They have that game right? The Game of Life?

This is funny and I agree. The scariest things are real life issues but still, I find some games just have that feeling to them.

While I haven't played the Cthulhu Pandemic (which sounds tense!), I find games like Pandemic can be scary due to rapidly rising problems and an imminent lose. Howeveer, their scare factor isn't the "horrific" way that you'd think of during Halloween. I can think of scary/horror/etc. -themed games, but none that really get me scared in that way. Maybe the prospect of having to play Killer Bunnies again :) 

EDIT: OK. I thought of one. Perhaps not the scariest thing I've ever encountered, but Betrayal at House on the Hill has some great "scare" elements. More creepy than scary, perhaps, but I think it fits the bill, especially when it comes to board games. I've heard the expansion also ratchets things up a bit as well.

Pandemic, Reign of Cthulhu is very intense, the art on it is pretty dope too. The old ones are nasty!

Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu is my choice! Fun and the monsters coming out definitely make it a tense scary game!

You also feel very under powered so when you win it makes it that much sweeter!
