Halloween is Now the Highest Grossing Slasher Film Ever

Posted by October 29, 2018 Comment

Halloween has been out for about ten days now, and in those ten days it has achieved a few records. Highest October horror opening ever, second biggest horror opening of all-time, biggest opening for the franchise itself. Now, after its second weekend, it has achieved another. Halloween has now already become the highest-grossing slasher film of all-time. That is not adjusted for inflation, but still an impressive fest on a $10 million budget. The film’s weekend gross of $32 million brings its total to $126.6 million. That is $23.6 million more than the former #1, the original Scream film.

The film takes place 40 years after the events of that fateful Halloween night that Michael came home in 1978. Since then, Michael is now in an asylum. A British film crew decides to do a documentary on his exploits, and wouldn’t you know it, he escapes. Getting ahold of his iconic mask, he makes a beeline for Haddonfield to finish the job. What he does not know is that Laurie (the returning Jamie Lee Curtis) has been prepping for this confrontation as well. The two will face off for what may or may not be the last time where it all began.
