A statue of them I don't mind, even the scary part. But they change from statue to scary statue to your killer in about 1/2 a second of darkness or distraction.
Did I mention that they can kill you
ratherREALLY REALLY quickly?
The weeping angels aren't scary because they can kill you. Most of the time, they kill you nicely by zapping you into the past, and then feeding off the potential energy of all the days you could've had in the present. And of the two people we saw where that happened to them, both of them appeared to have lived happy, full lives, and I can think of many, many worse ways to go. In fact, I honestly thought that making them kill people properly during the crash of the Byzantium made them less scary.
The two things people should be scared about are thus:
1) a throwaway line in "Blink" where the Doctor says that if the Angels got their hands on the TARDIS, "they could switch off the sun"
2) "The image of an angel is itself an angel" which means that the fourth wall will not protect you
