First Horror/Survival game?

Is it Haunted House for the 2600?

I used to love this game, playing it on lvl 9 is tough but fun!

If you want to talk modern I would say Alone in the Dark was the originator.

Alone in the Dark would be my pick too, though I never played it. It's genrally credited as the first survival horror game.

I would say Alone in the Dark, although the term "Surival Horror" was coined for Resident Evil.
