Horror flick Annabelle is going to do what others couldn't this year: Have a strong debut, something strong for a horror flick in 2014.. but in a surprise, Gone Girl will be stronger ..

Good news for Annabelle: the film will make more than $37.2 mil strong. The movie had a strong Friday night, boosted by younger crowds and social media and YouTube trailers that were shared heavily among horror fans..

But Gone Girl will finish near $38, something that may have been helped by strong online reviews and praise..

The weekend race for the top spot ended up close. Horror was strong with ANNABELLE, and those I spoke to who saw the movie said there was a positive movie theater experience with the film..

A young crowd went to see horror Friday.. The grownups went on Saturday. Social media helped both movies ... and Sunday looked just as strong both them ...

The rebirth of movies!?
No.. maybe just a fluke.
Times are getting colder.. warm popcorn and closely sitting next to your date in a theater are looking better in October..

Incidentally, the HORROR REPORT predicted $36 mil on Friday--very close to the final numbers that the movie will have this weekend..




New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
