“Annabelle Comes Home,” the seventh movie in the “Conjuring” universe and third in the “Annabelle” series, opened over the weekend with $US20 million domestically (and $US31 million since it opened on Wednesday).

While it’s the lowest opening in the “Conjuring” franchise, it still marks a solid debut for the horror series, which has grown into a reliable force at the box office. “The Nun,” for instance, fought off poor reviews last year to earn over $US50 million in its first weekend off of a $US22 million production budget.

We’ve ranked all seven based on their domestic opening-weekend box office – based on numbers from Box Office Mojo, adjusted for inflation – from director James Wan’s original 2013 movie to “Annabelle Comes Home.”
