North American moviegoers really like to be scared, and Universal gleefully accommodated them this weekend as its new release Halloween registered an impressive $76.2 million (Sh7.7 billion) in ticket sales, industry tracker Exhibitor Relations reported Monday. "A lot of fans surely came out for the return of the real Michael Myers without any of the prior sequels" baggage and to watch Jamie Lee Curtis as a heavily armed survivor looking to kill her assailant of 40 years ago.

For all the twists and plot inventions that filmmakers have been throwing at us over the years-from sibling surprises and unwanted backstories to psychic connections and unusual cults-the Halloween movies remain popular for one simple reason. The box office was looking sharp after going under the knife!

Meanwhile, Fox expanded YA drama "The Hate U Give" to 2,303 screens.

In fourth was another seasonal offering, Sony's Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, at $9.7 million (Sh981 million). That brings the film's domestic total to $10.6 million. That said, Halloween did deliver the largest October opening day of all-time, topping Venom's $32.5 million.
