Good horror books

I'm looking for scary reads about ghosts. I've tried some of the 'classics' out but didn't like them much. The ones I've tried are The Turn of the Screw and The Woman in Black. They were both okay reads, but pretty boring. I want something truly scary that can keep me up at night with thoughts etc.

What I like:
- Ghosts or beings that aren't corporal.
- Evil, or stories that deal with what evil can be.
- Characters who aren't too young (I just can't relate to characters under 18-ish).

What doesn't scare me: zombies, vampires and the like.

I know this is very vague, but does anyone know anything that fits these criteria? Or just any REALLY good ghost stories?

Thank you in advance :)
