Although Halloween is considered the traditional time for major horror movie releases, the early winter season is fruitful in its own right, as this past weekend showed, with horror films occupying three of the top four spots at the box office. Warm Bodies finished in first place in its opening weekend with a solid $20 million, while last week's champ Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters came in second with $9.2 million, and Mama held steady in fourth with $6.7 million, bringing its three-week total to a stellar $58 million and making it the first unofficial breakout horror smash of 2013. (For the record, Texas Chainsaw 3D has tumbled since its opening weekend, and Lionsgate has given up on it quickly, pulling it out of all but a handful of theaters; it's topped off at about $34 million.)
