Saying Boo to Bad Clients

If you think practicing law is an endless nightmare, then Halloween is the holiday for you.

It’s the time of year for peeking under the bed – or opening that dark, shadowy filing cabinet – and seeing what horrors lurk within. The time for confronting scary deadlines. The time for going into mediation to face The Angriest Lawyer in Town.

And if on occasion you feel terrified, take heart. You are not alone. Horror is universal – and it sells. Each year, horror movies rank among the most popular cinema fare.

Here then – to get you in the mood for tricks and treats – is a list of the 25 highest-grossing horror films of all time (we’ve listed the current box office take for the top three):

25)  Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)
