Evil Dead Gets First Place at Box Office

Evil DeadEvil Dead had their way with the competition at the box office this past weekend taking the top spot with an estimated $26 million. That’s the second highest opening for a horror movie this year — trailing only Mama ($28.4 million) and notably ahead of another high-profile remake/sequel, Texas Chainsaw 3D ($21.7 million). Evil Dead’s haul would put it in the top 10 all time for horror remakes, about on par with Rob Zombie’s Halloween, and it has already earned more at the box office than the previous three films in the Evil Dead series combined.
