Horror Box Office – OPENING THIS WEEK: October 27, 2017


Welcome back, everyone.  I’m changing the format a bit for this article going forward.  As VOD titles usually come out on Tuesdays to match the DVD schedule, this article will begin listing upcoming VOD list dates as opposed to VOD dates from a few days prior to publication.  Therefore, included in this article are the VOD and theatrical releases from October 24th AS WELL AS the VOD and theatrical releases through October 31st.

Okay, enough with the business aspect of things.  Let’s get down to the fun stuff.  This week sees Jigsaw hitting the box office, so leave your squeamish friends at home.

Annabelle: Creation hit the VOD market on October 24th, so you can check it out from the comfort of your own couch.  No need to get all…. wait for it… dolled up to go to the movies.  Get it?

There is also a modernized version of Nosferatu hitting theaters on October 31st.  Grab some candy, and get your freaky vampire thing on for Halloween!

Click on the titles below for full coverage, and remember to check back every Thursday at 10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET for updates.
