Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween was the pick for audiences this weekend, bringing in an estimated $21 million. While not a bad showing for a film that cost roughly $25 million to make, it’s worth nothing that the sequel’s debut is off about $7 million from the original’s from last year. Nothing alarming though, as this one will be in the black within days.

31 Days of Horror: Alone in the Dark (1982)

“All right, they’re crazy. Isn’t everybody?” – Dr. Leo Bain, Alone in the Dark

I’m a horror fan, but I’m not that crazy about slashers. That’s what makes 1982’s Alone in the Dark so special. Directed by Jack Sholder (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge), the film mixes black humor with genuine scares, both of which elevate it far above the average slasher.

It’s a happy weekend for Happy Death Day at the box office

When you’re wrong, you’re wrong, and this weekend, I was definitely off with my box office predictions. Here’s what went down:

Happy Death Day 2

Lesson learned – never underestimate the power of Blumhouse. Their Halloween box office entry, Happy Death Day, had an outstanding opening this weekend, bringing in an estimated $26.5 million. This is the third win for the production company, following Split and Get Out. The PG-13 rating definitely helped get teens into the theatre, as did the Scream meets Groundhog Day concept. Reviews have been decent as well, and throw in the time of year, and it makes perfect sense that Happy Death Day was able to debut in the top spot at the box office.

31 Days of Horror: Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

This article is part of Biff Bam Pop’s ongoing “Now Streaming on Shudder” series.

The reputation of a horror film can often loom so large that even the thought of watching it elicits fear. Such is the case with Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. After years of hearing it was one of the most realistic and shocking cinematic depictions of a serial killer, I purposely avoided it.

After growing fond of Michael Rooker as an actor over the years, I was also worried that he would be so believable I wouldn’t be able to watch him in anything else. I finally got the nerve to tackle Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer a few weeks ago.
