LOS ANGELES, Calif. - "Goosebumps" has scared off its competition to claim the top spot at the box office.

The family-friendly horror starring Jack Black as author R.L. Stine earned $23.5 million across the weekend, according to Sony's estimates Sunday. It cost a reported $58 million to produce.

"Goosebumps" also managed to beat "The Martian" by a hair, pushing Ridley Scott's adventure to the second-place spot for the first time in its three-week run with $21.5 million.

Steven Spielberg's well-received cold-war thriller "Bridge of Spies," debuted in third place with $15.4 million.

Guillermo del Toro's R-rated gothic romance "Crimson Peak" opened in fourth place with $12.8 million. It's one of del Toro's lowest wide openings after 1997's "Mimic," which earned only $7.8 million in its first weekend in theatres.

The neglected kittens, including the one pictured in this submitted photo, are under veterinary care and the adult cats are being assessed by the B.C. SPCA locations.
