The Conjuring now the third highest grossing supernatural film

In case you were confused on how good The Conjuring was, let this give you some insight.

James Wan's The Conjuring is now the third highest grossing supernatural horror film. It is directly behind The Exorcist and The Sixth Sense. That is including the international box office. Without the international numbers it is currently behind The Exorcist, The Sixth Sense, What Lies Beneath, and The Blair Witch Project. It is currently only $3 million away from knocking Blair Witch out of fourth place.

Why is this such a big deal? It proves that horror can be a box office hit and isn't just for a cult genre of fans. It also shows that horror can work in the summer and not just around Halloween.

The Conjuring was fantastic so this makes me very happy. I can't say enough good things about this movie.
