In certain areas creativity can grow with age but with horror film directors it seems to diminish. Shame. Hence we seem to live in the past with our love of movies eh? Can anyone name any good upcoming or present good directors who might have that special gene that I may not of heard of?

I can't think of any top directors, but I really like the new wave of horror from mainland Europe, with films like Martyrs, Livid, Frontiers, The Ordeal, The Orphanage, Julia's Eyes (to name but a few) really impressing.

A lot of French and Spanish there! I watched a film called Hierro from Spain the other week, very atmospheric in parts as well as visually stunning and bizarre. I love the Orphanage, great movie.

Is that good or bad in terms of Italian cinema attendance?

Thats 1235 (rounded down) euros per screen, (1000 rounded up) basicaly its made 17000 or thereabouts in its opening weekend. Dosent sound a lot but then I don't know how much films tend to gross in italy.

That certainly doesn't sound like it set the world (well, Italy anyway) on fire but without knowing what business other films did the same weekend it doesn't really tell us much.

After a little bit of digging I found this -

Giallo (2010)

Reckons Giallo did $17,458 on it's opening weekend in Italy across 34 theatres. Can only presume that is accurate.

1235 Euro per screen for Dracula and 396 Euro (todays exchange rate) for Gaillo if my maths hasn't failed me (it often has to be fair). Suggests that Dracula may have done fairly well but I would like to see figures for other films to put it in perspective.

This site might help draw some conclusions but I can't see Dracula mentioned. Was it this past weekend it was released?

Italy Box Office, November 1618, 2012
