Purged of holiday cheer, audiences craved blood this weekend (but not Bloodrayne), putting Eli Roth’s tourism-gone-awry terror flick Hostel in the top spot with a geyser of gore and money. A $20 million haul was more than enough to knock recent heavyweights Narnia and King Kong down the list, but both of those pricey juggernauts continue to pull in viewers. 

Awards hopefuls duke it out on the second part of the chart, with Munich (now in wide release), Memoirs of a Geisha and Brokeback Mountain drawing curious eyes — they’ll likely continue to do so up until Oscar noms are announced. Meanwhile, the awards for most dubious theatrical release is a tie between the comedy Grandma’s Boy and Dr. Uwe Boll’s latest catastrophe Bloodrayne, in 19th place with just $1.2 million and a per-screen average lower than Harry Potter in its eighth week. When will the genius of Dr. Boll be recognized? When?!?

Next week gets things back in gear with a bunch of new releases: Terence Malick’s latest historical/nature film The New World, the period romance Tristan & Isolde, the basketball coach movie Glory Road, the Queen Latifah dramedy Last Holiday, and the latest CGI kidflick Hoodwinked.
