Have the lambs stopped screaming?


After having just watched "Untraceable", a film which a critic referred to as "The Silence of the Lambs" for the internet age, I couldn't help but wonder, has any other thriller since Jonathan Demme's 1991 masterpiece been so influential and impossible to overshadow?
While some might mention "Se7en" and recent films like the "Saw" series or "Hostel", has there been any other film that so uniquely brings together horror, suspense and art house filmmaking like "Silence" and has the reviews to prove it?
