New Friday the 13th Rocks the Box Office

A while back, the makers of the new Friday the 13th re-boot said they had a sequel green-lit, unless the movie tanked. To date, the movie has taken in more than $45 million domestically, and compared to its $19 million production budget, it is safe to say it is a success. Whether you like the movie or not, I contend this is good news for horror films in general. Hollywood bases production on past returns, and a successful Friday the 13th can only encourage them to make more genre films.
