What impresses me most is when a movie has relatively small budget (less then $20 million) and makes a lot of money and gets critical and public acclaim like Slumdog Millionaire, March of the Penguins, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and Letters from Iwo Jima just to name a few.

 

Halloween – 1978
ESTIMATED BUDGET: $320,000

Often credited with starting the “slasher” genre, John Carpenter’s Halloween is one of the most financially successful films ever made. Produced on a shoe-string budget, this babysitting job gone wrong went on to gross $60 million worldwide (which is the equivalent of $203 million today). In 2006, it was selected for preservation by the United States Film Registry and the Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” Not too shabby for a horror film with a spray painted Captain Kirk Halloween mask.

 

Blair Witch Project 22,000 made over 250 million worldwide!

 

Paranormal Activity is more impressive imo

Production Budget: $15,000

Worldwide: $193,355,800

That is a great example! Even the second one made a ton on a small budget of 3 million I believe?

DVD sales says $16,624,990! I do not know if that includes Blue Ray and it def. does not include the second one.
