While October could be considered the calm before the holiday movie storm - paving the way for Skyfall and Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part 2) - it isn't without its box office success stories. Though the month has been dominated by two different horror franchises for the better part of a decade, this October has a few films that could pose a significant threat to the reigning king.
Of the films we're looking forward to, this October boasts a non-sequel horror film, a stop-motion feature from Tim Burton, the return of Liam Neeson as the one-man wrecking crew, a 3D video game adaptation, one of this year's most ambitious films, and of course another Paranormal Activity. It's quite the array of spooky entertainment, but who will win out in the end?
Here are the 10 movies we are looking forward to in October.
