Halloween isn't always a treat at the box office, but one or more horror films always bow in the weeks before to satisfy those who enjoy paying to be scared out of their minds. This year, "Carrie" is back again in a new version, looking to make $20 million or more -- likely not as high as past spooky entries .
Opening weekend: $52.6 million
The second-highest opening in October, behind “Gravity's” $55.6 million bow, “Paranormal 3” is the franchise's second-highest grossing pic, trailing the original.
Opening weekend: $48.1 million
Technically not a scary movie, though the comedy's puns made for an ideal pre-Halloween treat.
Opening weekend: $40.7 million
It was the first time the “Paranormal” franchise tested a wide release (the original scored big with a “demand-it” style platform), and the sequel didn't disappoint.
Opening weekend: $39.1 million
A nearly $40 million domestic launch and eventual $110 million gross spurred a sequel, which tanked, grossing even less than its predecessor's opening.
Opening box office: $33.6 million
Barely cracking the top five is the third “Saw” film, even though that franchise had a long-held stronghold on Halloween -- until “Paranormal Activity” came along.
