Box Office Winner: SAW 3D vs Paranormal Activity 2.

Box Office Winner: SAW 3D vs Paranormal Activity 2.Those of you who read my daily rants should know that I am not a fan of 3D for the sake of 3D. So it should come as no shock to anyone that I was predicting SAW 3D was going to get its ass handed to it by Paramounts latest Paranormal Experience Paranormal Activity 2. Now that Halloween is over and things are ramping down in the horror world lets look at the Box Office Numbers and see which movie came out on top.

Paranormal Activity 2 to date has brought in $117million world wide which is almost as much as the original film which made $193million according to BoxOfficeMojo. The sequel was a clear cut cash in on the popularity of the first one but it seems that despite this its a fantastic movie and one that has pleased horror fans. Luke one of our resident critics reviewed it and I encourage you to give his review a read [ Paranormal Activity 2 Review ]

SAW 3D has currently brought in $45million world wide which is by no means an un-impressive number. It is about $20million less then SAW VI and for those who cant do math in their head like me that is also over $50million less then Paranormal Activity 2. We are huge horror fans on this site but to give you an idea on how un-interested all of us were for SAW 3D not one of us went to see it. So in fairness it might actually be a fun conclusion to the SAW franchise but from the reviews I have heard its what you might expect. Rather then sending Jigsaw to space they threw him into 3D and tried with little effect to tie all the loose ends together and close the franchise.

So kids the verdict is that as much as Lionsgate wanted SAW 3D to be the big last hurrah for the franchise it was unable to topple the juggernaut that is Paranormal Activity 2. And although Jigsaw may be done Paranormal Activity is most certainly not as Paramount has already talked Paranormal Activity 3.

    The reviews have been negative on ALL of the Saw movies. When is a GREAT movie ever critically acclaimed? Most of the best movies ever made, critics HATED. I seen Saw 3D, and yeah, it wasn’t all that great, but the Paranormal Activity is awful all-around. It’s driving force is high school guys who take their girlfriends so they’ll squeeze their arm and be scared.
