LOS ANGELES -- Moviegoers were in the mood for a fright this weekend, sending "Insidious: Chapter 2" to the top of the box office.
The haunted-house horror flick debuted in first place with $41 million.
Another newcomer, the Robert De Niro-Michelle Pfeiffer crime caper "The Family," opened in second place with $14.5 million.
That bumped last week's champ, "Riddick," to third. "Lee Daniels' The Butler" continued its strong performance with a fourth-place finish that saw North American ticket sales cross the $100 million mark.
The Jennifer Aniston-Jason Sudeikis road-trip comedy "We're the Millers" rounded out the top five.
