Halloween Dead Zone

Do you plan to go to the movies this weekend? Variety reports the weekend before Halloween isn’t just a time for very few new movie releases, it’s also a time when a lot of people simply aren’t going to the movies. Why? Because they’re preoccupied with the coming holiday, and many parties are scheduled on weekends even when the holiday falls during the week. Plus, the newest horror movies are released in early October, and typically still in theaters at this time. Another, even worse time for movie attendance is Labor Day weekend, as people shift their focus to family cookouts and back-to-school prep.
