Folks preferred Death over a Killer Holiday Maniac

Maybe this is will convince Rob to leave the Halloween series alone. It came in 3rd place, the twice as stupid, The Final Destination hit number 1, with Inglourious Basterds holding on in 2nd place.
Warner Bros. and New Line's "The Final Destination" in 3-D was the destination of choice at the weekend box office, easily beating the Weinstein Co.'s "Halloween II" in grossing $28.3 million from 3,121 runs on the strength of the upcharge for a 3-D ticket.

"Halloween" grossed $17.4 million from 3,025 theaters to come in No. 3, behind "Destination" and the Weinstein Co.'s own "Inglourious Basterds," which held well and placed No. 2 in its second sesh.

I saw both failed Horror flicks in earlier screenings and I realized that Horror is in a State of Emergency.

The scariest ones to me have suspense and build to the terrifying part like Psycho, Silence of the Lambs, Seven, Jaws, The Shining, Rosemary's Baby, those with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, and movies like these. I can't watch Halloween, Elm Street, and all those because I'm a slasher movie wimp. I'll take your word for it on those.
