Looking back at the movies which had the biggest return on investment—or the movies which made the most profit in proportion to their budget—it’s evident that horror movies have always had money-spinning potential.The Ten Most Profitable Movies of All Time
As of this writing, only one I’ve reviewed so far (click title for review), but. I’ve seen all except The Devil Inside and The Gallows. Link courtesy of PartyCasino (and no, this link doesn’t lead to some spammy casino gambling page, it goes to a searchable database on movie ROI):
- Paranormal Activity
- The Blair Witch Project ⭐️⭐️
- Open Water
- The Gallows
- Napolean Dynamite
- Friday The 13th (1980)
- The Devil Inside
- My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Of the horror films I’ve seen, Friday the 13th (1980) is my most favorite. Jason Vorhees with a machete and a hockey mask scared the crap out of me the first time I watched. When it comes to sharks, nothing since has touched Peter Benchley’s Jaws. If you enjoy torture horror movies, Saw, is worth watching. Didn’t really care for the whole faux-real jittery home cam low budget movies like Blair Witch and Paranormal Activity.. So, those are my quick thoughts from memory, and when/if I rewatch them someday, maybe, I’m sure I’ll conjure more.
Am curious if you have any favorite of these 10 movies and/or how many others have seen?
