Horror Stays Hot At Box Office As Calendar Turns To December

by Thomas Tuna

‘Tis the season to be jolly.

For the second consecutive weekend–and despite December’s chill starting to descend across the country–two horror films finished in the domestic box office Top 10, according to a report on Deadline.

The Menu–from director Mark Mylod and screenwriters Seth Reiss and Will Tracy–came in an impressive fourth, with a three-day total of $3.6 million from 2,800 theaters. This take brings the film’s three-week gross to almost $25 million.

The horror pic–which follows a young couple who travel to a remote island where a shocking menu awaits–boasts an ensemble cast of Ralph Fiennes, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicholas Hoult, Judith Light and John Leguizamo.

And Bones and All–directed by Luca Guadagnino from a screenplay by David Kajganich–remained strong in its third weekend, coming in eighth with a $1.3-million haul from 2,700 theaters. The movie has earned more than $6 million so far.

This unique film follows a pair of young cannibalistic lovers–played by Taylor Russell and Timothee Chalamet–who flee together on a wild road trip across the country.
