Box Office: Teens with knives beat rams with horns

Rams tipped off the top of the list! Tenet back and snarling! What gives?

Freaky is now on top, providing $586,000 to exhibitors in its first week off 266 screens. This is another US$5m low budget comedy horror which starts with a serial killer preying on teenagers and gets genuinely imaginative when they start swapping bodies. Even so the average is still under $3000/screen.

Tenet went up by 496% to take $579,000 over the weekend over 149 screens.
