Top 25 Most Popular Horror | Thriller Movies of 2011

Top Grossing Movies in 2011 (US Domestic)

Ok, the tolls are in! You might be surprised at some of these actually deemed a success according to box office numbers, but hey…the public was in a spending mood and so the influx kept a-coming. Of course a few of these make alot of sense, but I think we were all duped on the “Shark Night 3D” entry.

To be honest I’m really surprised that “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” beat out “Insidious“, but then again there wasn’t much playing that week and folks were itching to get out of the house.
