I wonder if Run Time is even an issue any more since Endgame. It used to be a limitation because it limited the number of showings per day, but with so many potential screens now, any demand can probably be met.

i think we are talking about 2 different beasts in this case. yes, run time doesn't factor as highly as it used to, but comparing Endgame run time (the last MCU film, of 22 that stood before, in the current tier that reaches a much wider audience than a horror movie based on a book) is like apples and oranges imo. for an R rated horror movie to run so long and get mediocre reviews, compared to Endgame's great reviews, i think is the bigger feat.

Factor in also that matinee showings arenít as strongly attended when it comes to horror movies.
