Paranormal Activity destroys stupid Vamps and Jigsaw Puzzles

I can't believe this!

The cheap and easy horror flick, Paranormal Activity whipped Saw VI's ass at the box office and pissed on the Cirque du Freak: the Vampire’s Assistant movie's face for fun.
Becoming the biggest box office phenomenon of the year, Paramount’s “Paranormal Activity” easily took down “Saw VI” in grossing an estimated $22 million from 1,945 theaters to win the weekend and finish with an eye-popping cume of $62.5 million in its fifth frame.

“Saw VI” opened to an estimated $14.8 million from 3,036 theaters--less than half the opening gross of the previous four films in the horror franchise. It also came in below the original “Saw,” which opened just north of $18 million. Film placed No. 2.

Universal’s Halloween entry “Cirque du Freak: the Vampire’s Assistant” grossed an estimated $6.3 million from 2,754 runs to placed No. 8. Film was co-financed by U and Relativity Entertainment, and produced for $40 million.

Paranormal continues to fool, I mean, wow audiences. And it sent the message that original ideas are on the comeback train. So producers, take heed at what just happened.

Jigsaw is dead and vampires are boring... Jazz horror up!

I read an article in the LATimes that predicted this. The reasoning behind the foretold occurrence was that the Saw series is running out of steam. Personally, I think we've become over saturated with the vampire genre in the last few years.
