Man, have you guys seen the release slate for the next couple months? There is an INSANE amount of horror films coming out - I don't know how the market is going to sustain it. Not only that, but we get two huge franchises opening head to head next week. Madness!
The Final Destination
Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant
That's at least one horror movie a week for the next two months...start saving your cash!
On a side note - what are the Weinstein's thinking? They're in big money trouble and what do they do? Not only do they release their two biggest fall titles one week apart to cannibalize each film's market (Inglorious Basterds and Halloween II) but they also release Halloween II day and date with a more hyped 3D event horror sequel. Sounds like bullheadedness to me on the Weinstein's part, not willing to give up their August date despite it making absolutely no economic sense. Here's a thought...release a Halloween movie in, you know, October! I'm glad it's a Rob Zombie movie, because if it tanks at least the Weinstein's will take a worthy adversary down with them.
