Me and my manfriend like scary movies but are having trouble finding ones that actually scare us and make us scream. Help!

Most horror movies these days are just gorey and that doesn't bother either of us much. We've seen the SAW movies and they don't get much more than a shoulder shrug. I enjoy the Scream franchise but they aren't all that scary. The problem is also that we have seen a tremendous number of horror movies so we're having trouble finding ones that we haven't seen yet. Plus, we're a little desensitized.
The types of movies that usually scare us the most are atmospheric really tense ones, especially ones involving hauntings and demonic possessions. We're fine with foreign language and J-horror is usually pretty good. Really, we don't care about the genre or anything else so long as it has some real scares and moments that make you scream out loud and that give you the creeps that last even once the movie is done.
Examples of movies that scared us:
- Paranormal Activity 1/2
- The Ring/Ringu
