'Paranormal Activity' Edges Up on 'Zombieland'   

October 27, 2009 Proving to be the biggest horror hit of the year, "Paranormal Activity" is now set to outpace even the big hit horror comedy "Zombieland" at the box office.

As of October 26, "Paranormal Activity" had made $63,433,879. "Zombieland" has raked in $67,563,454, despite opening wide early this month.

In short, "Paranormal Activity" is turning into the surprise horror hit of 2009 and is actually redeeming the entire year. The other big horror hit of the season, "Final Destination 3D", has raked in $66,122,948, but has faded from the box office. Expect "Paranormal Activity" to continue its gains and surpass expectations again this coming Halloween weekend.

It just goes to show -- people will pay to see quality horror on the big screen, even when it isn't in 3D.
