Director Kenneth Branagh keeps the number one spot for the second week with the spooky Hercule Poirot mystery A Haunting in Venice. It's no slasher but something about it appeals to those who like horror films. It has ghosts, psychic mediums who can supposedly talk to the dead, people are impaled and poisoned. Sounds like horror to me! A Haunting in Venice also stars Jamie Dornan, Tina Fey, Jude Hill, Ali Khan, and Michelle Yeoh.

2. Talk to Me (2022)

Talk to Me has also refused to give up its spot in the top ten again for the fourth week in a row. While its actual position has changed, the movie remains on the list. This ghostly possession film about grief really hits home with a lot of people. It's got such a sense of joy until it stops being fun. Danny and Michael Philippou the twin co-directors put a lot of heart into this movie which is why it is not only a fan favorite but one of the best horror films of the year.

Five Nights at Freddy's continues to rake in the cash in theaters while still being on streaming. This weekend the film's worldwide gross reached $271 million. While critics have not been kind to the film, it is undoubtedly popular with fans. The film had been in development since 2015 so Five Nights at Freddy's enthusiasts have been waiting for this film for a long time.

4. When Evil Lurks (2023)

Another critical and horror fan favorite retains its position in the top ten. A truly horrifying slice of possession with a definite lack of safety for all the characters and any kind of savior, When Evil Lurks will shock you and make you question why no one ever made a movie like this ever before. The Argentinian director Demián Rugna breaks all of the rules of possession in films that were set in stone by The Exorcist, which is one of Rugna's favorite films. It's multilayered sociological horror that really rocks. It is streaming on Shudder right now! Read more: The First Omen Here's Our First Look At 20th Century's The Omen Prequel.

Writer and director Ti West's sexy Texas slasher film has returned to the top ten after its release last year. It was originally released on video on demand in April 2022, so this supercharged return to the chart is impressive and not that surprising. The film, stars Mia Goth, in her breakthrough dual role, Jenna Ortega, Martin Henderson, Brittany Snow, and Owen Campbell. The film was so popular that the concurrently filmed prequel Pearl was released later in 2022 and the third film MaXXXine is in production and slated for release in 2024.

Ari Aster's second feature, Midsommar, hit audiences just as hard as his first, Hereditary, did. Maybe even harder. But to see the film come back to the top ten after four years is both unsurprising and very welcome. Even after the release of his third film, Beau Is Afraid, it's nice to see that fans haven't forgotten about one of their favorites of the new millennium. Midsommar, which made Florence Pugh a star, also stars Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgren, Will Poulter, and Björn Andrésen, who starred in Luchino Visconti's Death in Venice as a child with otherworldly beauty.

9. Saw X (2023)

The tenth film in the Saw franchise is now the one with the best critical rating of all of the films in the series. Pretty great work for franchise that has been making films for almost twenty years. Saw X first came to streaming on October 20 and this is the film's reappearance on the chart after the week of October 23. Why is it so highly rated? Well, the film does bring back original stars and franchise favorites Tobin Bell as John Kramer and Shawnee Smith as Amanda Young. That fact might have a lot to do with the film's success.

10. No One Will Save You (2023)

For a film that only has five words spoken throughout its running time, No One Will Save You is doing great. This is its fourth week in a row in the top ten still with very little fanfare and mostly horror fans' word of mouth to keep it there. Kaitlyn Dever holds the film in the palm of her hand. It also stars Zack Duhame , Lauren Murray , Geraldine Singer, and Dane Rhodes.
