Blumhouse’s Halloween Slashes Up The Box Office

Halloween is back! On Friday it had the largest October opening with 33 million (edging out Venom which had 32.5 million).

Halloween ended up taking home a wildly impressive $77.5 million over three days. For a franchise many had thought dead, this new reboot/sequel has revitalized the series and talks of a sequel are already underway.

“Biggest horror movie opening with a female lead. Biggest movie opening with a female lead over 55. Second biggest October movie opening ever. Biggest Halloween opening ever,” Jamie Lee Curtis tweeted, adding the hashtag #WomenGetThingsDone.

To say the horror genre is back is a lazy and uneducated comment. What people should be saying is good movies are back with good movie makers.

Take note Hollywood, make a good movie and people actually show up. Halloween isn’t just good, it’s great. And well deserving of all the praise it is getting.
