"Puss in Boots" knocked "Paranormal Activity 3" out of the top spot at the box office this weekend -- a little surprising, given that it's Halloween and all. But the prequel to a prequel is still a hit: Last weekend, the haunted house flick had the highest-grossing domestic debut for a horror film and broke records for an October release.
SODAHEAD SLIDESHOW: See the scariest movies ever.
"This is the best of the series. It was well-reviewed," Don Harris, Paramount's president of domestic distribution, told Reuters, adding that "people like to be scared in a Hitchcock-ian way. This isn't a bloody franchise."
But rather than heading out to the theater tonight, we're thinking we'd rather scare ourselves with a classic horror film or two -- all while curled up on the couch. We saw "Carrie" pretty recently (which is still our favorite fright flick), so we're thinking "The Exorcist," "Psycho" or maybe "The Shining." From "A Nightmare on Elm Street" to "Friday the 13th," let us know: What's the best scary movie to watch tonight?
