No. First of all, he doesn't deserve to be on a list of "Masters of Horror" when he's never even made a horror movie. That's just asinine. If anything, he should be considered an affront to the horror genre for his Platinum Duds remakes.

If Michael Bay wants to make a horror film, he could just have a documentary crew follow him around while he screws up the next Ninja Turtles movie.

Isn't every movie that Bay makes a grueling cinematic experience of unrelenting editing and useless explosions that drain the viewer of all life and intelligence?
