10 Horror Movies That Will Scare Your Pants Off This Summer

Which Movie Will Be No. 1 at the Box Office This Weekend?

While there are several new releases coming out this weekend (Evan Almighty, A Mighty Heart, 1408, and others), it's hard to say if any of them will definitely knock The Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer off of its box office throne. What do you think?

I saw Evan Almighty with my boyfriend and parents on Friday. Evan Almighty was silly but very feel-good, as long as you are able to suspend disbelief and just go with it. I didn't realize until after I had seen it that it was a sequel of Bruce Almighty. I loved all the animal acting in it. If you like animals, you will love this movie.

I love John Cusack, but I'm thinking most kids will wanna see Silver Surfer this weekend.

I hear that 1408 did better than expected, and that Evan was a big disappointment Here is the article: "Universal’s Evan Almighty is a huge disappointment. Despite its $200M+ budget, the presence of Steve Carell and an aggressive campaign aimed at Christians, it appears that this story of a modern day Noah generated only an estimated $12M on its opening day, which will likely translate to just $34M for the weekend. If that number holds, Evan Almighty will fall short of $100M domestic, making it a disaster of biblical proportions for NBC Universal. Meanwhile, MGM/Weinstein has a nice hit on its hands with 1408. This is a horror film, but not an R-rated torture film from the Hostel/Hills Have Eyes school. Instead, it’s just a good scary movie about a haunted hotel room with a very good John Cusack performance. My sources tell me that it will likely finish 2nd on Friday with $7M or so and 3rd for the weekend with approximately $18.5M. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (Fox) is experiencing a massive 2nd weekend drop of 65%. FF2 grabbed only $6.7M on Friday, but its kid appeal will lift it into 2nd place for the weekend with an estimated $20.5M weekend."

I would guess Evan Almighty since it is summer and light-hearted flicks are preferred. Actually, I think the movies are going to come in in the order pictured above... but that's just a coincident.

I didn't vote for 1408, but it just surprised me how full it was (then again, it is summer and the only theater in town but it hasn't been all that busy this summer). It was a very good movie, but I don't think it'll take the #1 spot this weekend. As for location, small Southern town with a population of about 25,000...almost all middle class families with children.

We saw 1408 last night, and the theater was packed FULL. No seats available. Very unusual for our area. The only other time I've seen that happen was the opening night of 300. Even the LOTR, Star Wars, and Harry Potter movies weren't hard to get into and sit comfortably around here opening weekend.

Despite the less than positive reviews, Evan will probably draw the weekend audience.

I love Steve Carell!!! I think that Evan will be first, followed by F4, A mighty Heart and 1408 in last.
