Horror Sales: Human Centipede II, Transformers, and Scare Tactics

I figured if I counted Transformers as a scifi film, I might as well count Real Steel too. Dream House continues to perform well. Tucker & Dale VS Evil moves several spots up the chart. Human Centipede II debuts at The Box Office at #43, probably due to special/limited screenings.

1Real Steel $35,349,000

8 6 Dream House $5,927,000 (Total: $15,919,000)

10 10 Contagion $4,104,000 (Total: $70,188,000)

16 26 Harry Potter/Hallows 2 $605,000 (Total: $379,950,000)

25 30 Cowboys & Aliens $207,000 (Total: $99,828,000)

31 31 Transformers/Moon $114,000 (Total: $352,390,000)

33 34 Don’t Be Afraid/Dark $93,000 (Total: $23,842,000)

40 49 Tucker & Dale vs Evil $57,000 (Total: $128,000)

43 Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence $50,000

49 42 Final Destination 5 $42,000 (Total: $42,587,000)

56 68 Fright Night $26,000 (Total: $18,116,000)

59 53 Apollo 18 $24,000 (Total: $17,527,000)

Transformers: Dark of The Moon debuts on the DVD Top 30 Chart and the release also makes the previous two Transformers movies pick up sales. Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part I did the same thing to the other Harry Potter films. Hocus Pocus also emerges on the chart and, even though it’s kind of silly, it was one of my favorite Halloween films when I was in elementary school.

1 Transformers: Dark of The Moon $13,530,000

3 2 Spookie Buddies $2,826,000 (Total: $8,622,000)

5 5 X-Men: First Class $1,426,000 (Total: $19,956,000)

6 3 Thor $1,393,000 (Total: $15,872,000)

16 14 Supernatural Season Six $605,000 (Total: $7,038,000)

23 N/A Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen $334,000 (Total: $220,443,000)

26 N/A Hocus Pocus $201,000 (Total: N/A)

27 N/A Transformers $172,000 (Total: $291,888,000)

 Nielson ratings show that The Vampire Diaries has regained its throne as most viewed horror/scifi show on television, although American Horror Story is still pulling decent viewers. Also, Scare Tactics debuts to some lackluster numbers. I’m wondering if I should start counting Fringe and Terra Nova on the ratings watch list, if so Vampire Diaries will drop to #3 each week…dun dun duN!!!

The Vampire Diaries – 2,810,000

American Horror Story – 2,462,000

Halloween Wars – 1,972,000

The Secret Circle – 1,840,000

Supernatural – 1,720,000

Dexter – 1,714,000

Ghost Hunters – 1,586,000

Sanctuary – 1,380,000

Ancient Aliens – 1,317,000

Paranormal Witness – 1,277,000
