"Insidious: Chapter 2" -- a low-budget horror sequel -- gripped moviegoers seeking a Friday the 13th scare.

It took this weekend's box office title, raking in more that $41 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates. Nearly $20 million came in on its Friday the 13th release.

The chilling flick features a family haunted by spirits.

Meanwhile, the Robert De Niro comedy, "The Family", finished second at the box office with $14.5 million over the weekend. De Niro plays a mobster whose family relocates to France under the witness protection program.

Last weekend's box office lead, sci-fi sequel "Riddick," fell into third place with $7 million in ticket sales. Vin Diesel stars as an intergalactic traveler who can see in the dark.
