13. Mirrors (2008)
The director of “The Hills Have Eyes” and “Piranha” decided to take the concept of South Korean horror film “Into The Mirror”, twist it up a little here and there and create a new version and adaptation that would become this supernatural horror starring Kiefer Sutherland, Paula Patton, and Amy Smart. It has got a good execution on all the scary special effects used and finds a certain balance between the mystery and the jump scares, giving the gore an extra emphasis. Ben Carson is an ex-police-detective who starts a new job as a security guard, in a destroyed department store where the only things that are intact and clean are the mirrors on the walls. He soon begins having visions and hallucinations through them, before realising that an evil force is using the mirrors to reach and kill the people of his surroundings.

12. Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark (2010)
In 1973, a television film of the same name was made, which inspired a bunch of talented filmmakers in creating a remake that saw its release in 2010. Amongst them, was Matthew Robbins and Guillermo Del Toro as writers, and the less-known Canadian comic-book artist Troy Nixey as director. This fantasy horror film delivers a scary atmosphere where violence is key, and creepy mole-rat-inpired creatures within the stunning setting of a dark and terrifying Gothic mansion. Starring Katie Holmes, Guy Pierce and Bailee Madison, it follows an 8 year old girl who moves into a mysterious mansion with her father and his girlfriend, only to find herself releasing evil creatures of the basement, after these lure her into their space with soft and melodic whispers.
