There is some similar expressions in Spanish:

Poner los pelos de punta

Poner la piel de gallina

So in the sentence you gave it will be something like:

La película de terror daba tanto miedo que me puso los pelos de punta.

La película era tan terrorífica que hizo que se me pusiera la piel de gallina.
