5. The Devil’s Backbone (2001)

Set in the final year of The Spanish Civil War, Guillermo Del Toro regards this beautiful Gothic masterpiece as his most personal work.

The first class art-direction gives the film a look and feel that does enough by itself to send a shiver down your spine, but it’s more than just a horror film, it’s brilliantly acted and deals with some weighty issues like love and the sacrifices made in wartime. If you like Pan’s Labyrinth, you’ll love this.
