    So these are US only films, and a list of the films that won the US box office in a week?

    Ideally, just the US ones, yeah. Although I'm amazed that there's so few horror films in the span of 10 years that made it to the top spot. I understand horror is kind of a niche category for some film fans, but I'd say this list is kind of great and hopefully, it's correct. Some films that aren't critical hits still rake in the money somehow.

    Jaws 3-D was probably just being hyped up by the 3-D fad at the time...

    Ones from the list I saw at the theater....Elm Street 3, Elm Street 4, F13th VII, Predator, and Pet Semetary.

    Poltergeist got popular by word of mouth and was followed by ET a week later which is why it never got to #1.

    Happy Birthday to Me was made in Canada, but was a #1 hit at the U.S. box office during 1981.

    I want to know the rankings for The Changeling and Scanners.
