NEW YORK (AP) — The low-budget home invasion horror film "Don't Breathe" led the box office for the second straight week, topping all films over the Labor Day weekend with a four-day haul of $19.7 million.

No new entries made much of a dent on the last weekend of Hollywood's summer season.

The DreamWorks period drama "The Light Between Oceans," starring Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander, opened with $6.2 million Friday through Monday. It was made for about $20 million.

Fox's rival horror film, "Morgan," was completely overshadowed by "Don't Breathe. It debuted with just $2.5 million over the holiday frame.
