'Saw 3D' Slashes Box-Office Competition

Horror film lands in theaters Halloween weekend with $22.5 million.

Moviegoers looked to "Saw 3D" for scares over the Halloween weekend. Featuring an appearance from Linkin Park's Chester Bennington, the latest installment in the fright series took the top spot at the box office, picking up roughly $22.5 million since opening Friday.

Theatergoers also filled seats to get spooked out by "Paranormal Activity 2," which took the second-place trophy. Fans plunked down $16.5 million to watch a household grapple with the unsettling bumps in the night of a haunted home. The weekend haul kicks the film's estimated, two-week gross to over $65 million.

The butt-kicking, hired-gun caper "Red" took third place. The firepower-packed, action flick — starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich as retired assassins back in the game for a final run-in with crooked CIA big wigs — raked in $10.8 million. The weekend figure bumps the film's total tally to around $58 million.

"Jackass 3D" continued to draw moviegoers with a penchant for pranks. The "Jackass" crew's latest stunt-driven romp took fourth place, pulling in an estimated $8.4 million. After three weekends on screens, the film's total haul has ballooned to a lofty figure: an estimated $101 million.

Clint Eastwood's latest turn in the director's chair, "Hereafter," finished the weekend in fifth place. The supernatural drama, which focuses on the lives of three people across the globe exploring their relationships with the afterlife, picked up $6.3 million. The film, which stars Matt Damon, Bryce Dallas Howard and Cécile de France, has made over $22 million since hitting theaters.
