Horror movies dominated the U.S. box office over Halloween weekend with Saw 3D beating out Paranormal Activity 2 as the nation's top film.
The seventh installment in the series about psychokiller Jigsaw debuted at number one with $24.2 million, bumping Paranormal Activity 2, with a gross of $16.5 million, to the second spot. The low budget horror hit broke box office records last weekend by scoring the biggest three-day opening for a horror film, and now boasts a 10-day total of nearly $65.7 million.
The success of the documentary-style film kept Bruce Willis' action release Red at three with $10.8 million, while outrageous stunt film Jackass 3-D slipped from two to four with $8.4 million in earnings.
Matt Damon's supernatural film Hereafter, directed by Clint Eastwood, rounds out the top five with a weekend total of $6.3 million.
