by Thomas Tuna

Horror fans are still going to the movies.

Two horror entries–Thanksgiving in its debut weekend and Five Nights at Freddy’s in its fourth week–performed well at the box office this weekend, according to numbers reported by Deadline.

Thanksgiving–directed and produced by Eli Roth from a screenplay he wrote with Jeff Rendell–finished in fourth place in the domestic box office race in its debut, raking in $10 million from 3,200 theaters.

The Tri-Star/Spyglass Media entry follows a mysterious killer known as John Carver as he stalks Plymouth, Mass. and tries to make a bloody carving board of the locals. No leftovers this year.

And Five Nights at Freddy’s continued its box office blitz in its fourth weekend, pulling in more than $3 million from 2,800 domestic theaters, bringing its stateside running total to more than $132 million.

The film adaptation of the popular horror video game–directed by Emma Tammi from a screenplay she wrote with game creator Scott Cawthon and Seth Cuddeback–follows Mike Schmidt (Josh Hutcherson), a night security guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, as he battles animatronics gone wild as the sun goes down.
