    By the way, for those wondering, according to Box Office Mojo, MBV 3D only cost $15 million to make, so expect a sequel probably next year!

    I see a new franchise ... :D

    Charts updated. Three R-Rated movies in the lead. I'd say that is a damn good start.

    Yeah, and I think Friday only cost $19 million as well. So next year instead of another Saw sequel we have MBV 2 and Friday 2 to look forward to. Sweetness! :banana:

    Gonna be interesting to see what F13 closes at. 45 1/2 mill in it's first 5 days is pretty good all things considered. #1 in the Box Office thus far :)

    As much as I didnt really like the new F13 im glad its making the dough.We need some serious slasher carnage in 2009.I didnt think MBV would do that good.

    This is good news! I finally got a chance to see My Bloody Valentine (in 2d, not 3) last night and I loved it. I also saw/like the new Friday the 13th. I now they are remakes, but at least the horror industry is bringing in some bucks. Bring on My Bloody Valentine 2.

    It's always good to see horror flicks tops at the box office, however, we can expect to see many more remakes/re-visions with the recent success of F13 and MBV. We asked for it.

    I think we always end up going to see the re-makes,so why shouldn´t they make more? I guess we´ll more than likely end up going to see them as well. Re-makes don´t work well for a lot of movies but for horror,they don´t seem to die off - we just can´t get enough!

    Sounds good to me! I have enjoyed most of the remakes, so as long as they continue to meet my expectations then it doesn't bother me. To me remakes are the same thing as all the pointless 80s sequels that came out, nothing new, but fun none the less. That, and we end up getting original sequels, as long as the remakes do well. Who knows where they'll take MBV 2, Friday 2, or Halloween 2!?

    That, there will still continue to be a few original gems each year, whether the remakes are there or not. Again, mirroring the 80s, in between all the sequels there were quite a few gems.

    Jason still rules the charts. Only new entry this week is The Haunting In Connecticut with a solid $23m.

    I am very happy to see that "My Bloody Valentine" did so well! Although it certainly wasn't without its share of flaws, I had a blast watching that one at the theater in 3D. (IMHO... it was waayy more enjoyable than F13.)

    I actually went to see MBV with my parents (who are in their mid-sixties), and they both loved it. Of course, the only reason Mom was willing to give it a shot is because she likes "Supernatural" and has a mad crush on Jensen Ackles!

    I hope it only cost around $100 to make The Objective. Anyone here got anything on that $95 it's pulled in?

    Three new entries, Jason still at top, and Virginia Madsen's Haunting In Connecticut moving up to #2.
    All eyes on Sam Raimi's Drag Me To Hell opening next week ...

    Yeah, it's going to be interesting to see how Drag does since it's the first Raimi horror post fame and glory with Spider-man. I can't really see it doing much better than his other Ghost House films though, there just isn't enough on the table. I can see it performing in between The Grudge and The Messengers. I doubt it has a shot at Jason's mantle, though.

    Charts updated. Drag Me To Hell did ok but could've done better. Coming soon is Dark Castle's Orphan and I predict a solid box office run. How could it possibly bomb with a poster art like that? ;)

    I think the horror movie to look out for this year will be The Box directed by the guy that did Donnie Darko and starring Cameron Diaz.
