Thirst for Blood
3. Despite being banned in several countries due to its violent content, the seminal slasher flick earned over $30 million at the box office on an estimated budget of just over $83 thousand. With that kind of return on investment, it’s no wonder producers kept trying to repeat the success with remakes and sequels, all with varying degrees of success. As of now, the franchise has made more than $160 million domestically. That’s over $300 million when adjusted for inflation, with the original still reigning as the top earner, beating the 2003 remake by more than $20 grand. Whether or not the new version will be a hit or not is yet to be seen, but you can get a sense of "Texas Chainsaw 3D" from the trailer above.
