Daniel Radcliffe's Hammer horror film holds off strong competition from new releases The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Safe House to secure the number one spot with £2.4 million in ticket sales.
Marigold Hotel, which features an all-star British cast that includes Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Tom Wilkinson, and action-thriller Safe House both notched up impressive debuts of more than £2 million but still trail behind the supernatural horror among UK cinemagoers.
The Muppets slides two spots to number four, while Nicolas Cage's Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance completes the top five.
With the half-term school holidays over, the top ten sees a dip in takings over the past week, but both The Vow and this weekend's big Oscar-winner The Artist hold their spots at numbers six and nine respectively.
