Paranormal Activity 3 Scares Away the Competition


Not only did Paranormal Activity 3 scare the competition away, it frightened and spooked it. Yes I say this because, the third in the horror franchise managed to gross an October record $54 million over the weekend, also making it the highest opening for a horror flick. And when you thought this franchise would die out, it just keeps on scaring. Now, while the audiences are scared, the producers are "ka-ching" as this film reportedly only cost $5 million.

As for the other movies that came out this weekend, The Three Musketeers and Johnny English Reborn (where both movies would be considered flops in the States, but doing surprisingly well overseas), a 4th and 8th place finish respectively.
