Paranormal Activity 2 rolled out across America to the sound of critical shoulder-shrugging and money going in the tills. The film opened on Midnight last Thursday to the sound of $6.3 million.

This makes it the highest-grossing R-rated midnight opening ever, as well as the highest grossing October midnight release. The film beat out Zack Snyder's naked blue man film Watchmen, which held the previous best of $4.6 million in March 2009.

Expect Paranormal Activity 2: Paranormal To The Max to follow a similar pattern as its predecessor, which held only midnight screenings until the fifth week of being on release.

For its weekend run, Paranormal grossed over $41 million - possibly a new record for a horror film. A third film will be announced next week.
