The film adaptation of Stephen King’s novel about a child-eating clown, It, has knocked The Exorcist off as the highest-grossing domestic horror film after just two weeks of release.

Respectably, The Exorcist remains the international top-grossing horror film snagging $441.3 million to It’s 404.3 million; however, the record does not acknowledge inflation.

Opening weekend for It recorded the biggest September debut since Hotel Transylvania 2 in 2015. The horror flick surpassed the child film’s $48.5 million with a soaring $123.4 million.

The film that cost $35 million for Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema to produce follows a group of bullied teenagers as they overcome their fears to fight against the bloodthirsty clown Pennywise, played by Bill Skarsgard.
