Default Best horror of the 2000's

I noticed in the thread 'Best Horror Movie of the past 20 Years' that there is almost too large of a gap. Since the early 2000's, in the wake of a glut of scream clones and in the face of 9/11, horror has undergone considerable changes. No longer the underground genre of the 90's, horror's mainstream success has been largely due to a healthy foreign market, American adaptations, and a near infinite glut of remakes.

In the face of much flaming, I consider Hostel to be arguably one of the most defining horror films of this decade. Not my favorite to be sure, but possibly one of the most fun and original American releases to hit the mainstream market. Just so we can get a list established, here's what I feel are the highest quality horror films of the 2000's.

What? I enjoyed the extremely heavy atmosphere there. Besides that, only The Descent gave me the same atmosphere in 2000's, so... lol

Honestly, there is no way I can tell you what the best horror of the 00's is because it's all down to personal opinion, but there is no way Saw, any of the Saw movies could be considered the best of anything.
