The Highest Selling Horror Films of 2021

2021 was a decent year for big budget horror, however, the pandemic continued to prove a worthy adversary to ticket sales. With shorter theatrical releases, same day streaming and the fear of catching COVID, people just weren’t running to theaters unless it was to see the new Spider Man. This is reflected in the total sales for the big releases of last year. So, here’s the shortlist, which does not include any out of theater revenue.
