The 21st Century Masters Of Horror

In an age where kids no longer believe ghost stories because they can look up the truth online, it's good to know that there are still artists creating the types of movies nightmares are made of. This September, Friday the 13th, Insidious: Chapter 2 will make sure your entire family sleeps with one eye open.

Guillermo del Toro, the movie's director, penned The Devil's Backbone when he was in college and has gone on record saying that this is his most prized work. The story is based on his own childhood memories, specifically his relationship with his deceased uncle, who supposedly came back as a ghost. The director's other horror credits include 2009's Splice and 2013's Mama.

Raimi is known for his distinguishable style of horror. His main characters are often subjected to a humorous style of pain à la The Three Stooges, the majority of his films contain scenes through the eyes of the villain, and he includes his yellow 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 in his films any time he gets the chance.

The Swedish thriller, which tells the story of a bullied boy who finds comfort and revenge through a vampire, was Empire Magazine's 2008 movie of the year. This is the first time a foreign movie topped the list since City of God in 2003.

The 2007 P.O.V horror film has been credited with flawlessly executing the Blair Witch Project style of cinematography. The story follows a television reporter and cameraman who get trapped in an apartment building with something terrifying while covering a story. While shooting, none of the actors received full scripts so that they would not know their character's fate until the last possible moment.

The Mist is Darabont's third Stephen King film adaptation, after The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile. His dedication to preserving the story's authenticity was put to the test when certain movie studios wanted to change The Mist's ending, but Darabont refused to give in to their pressure. Other credits include the star-studded Frankenstein and the most horrifyingly addictive drama on TV, The Walking Dead.

Inspired by James Wan and Jason Blum's Insidious: Chapter 2, out September Friday the 13th.
