Halloween by The Numbers Part 4
In the last two weeks we have broken up Halloween by the numbers to give you an idea of how big Halloween really is when it comes to spending but we've also talked about safety and how much Haunted Houses will rake in this season. According to Wallet Hub, we have your final percentages and spending numbers.
When it comes to Horror movies, Last year these films brought in around 1.4 Billion dollars. The three movies that were mostly responsible for that number are as follows. Stephen King's Reimagined film "IT". Yep, years later Pennywise the clown is still about the scariest thing we've seen. Happy Death day was another film that brought in a bunch of cash last year. Another surprise hit was the film "Get Out" that left people shaking their heads in fear.
What I have realized is we haven't even touched on Pumpkin numbers yet so here goes. So the average price of a pumpkin has dropped 2.7 percent this year. Which means you can grab a pumpkin for around 4 to 6 bucks. The amount of pumpkins that are grown each year weighs in at around 2 billion pounds. That's a lot of pumpkin pie.
