October 29, 2007 As reported in Variety: "Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures’ “Saw IV” easily slaughtered the competition at the weekend domestic box office, becoming the highest opener of the troubled fall and upsetting conventional wisdom that hardcore horror no longer works."
"Saw IV" was a monster smash, grossing $32.1 million over the weekend, ahead of Part II's $31.7 million and just behind Part III's $33.6 million. This is certainly the horror franchise of the 2000s.
