‘Friday the 13th’ Remake Tops Valentines Box-Office

"Friday the 13th" the remake delivered enough screams to top US Box-office last Valentine weekend with $42.2 million.

The slasher flick which is the reboot of the 1980 horror classic registered a record for the horror genre last Valentine’s Day weekend.

The Warner Bros. horror movie surpassed the $39.1 million debut for 2004’s “The Grudge,” the Hollywood adaptation of the Japanese horror movie. Accounting for today’s higher admission prices, however, “The Grudge” sold slightly more tickets.

“Friday the 13th” (2009) updates the grisly story of killer Jason Voorhees and his rampage among teens at a secluded summer camp.
