The Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell produced remake of “Evil Dead” scared its way into the top spot at the box office, earning $26 million over the weekend. That’s  the good news. The bad news is it was front loaded on Friday and movie goers gave it a C+ score, which doesn’t bode well for this film having any sort of legs. The Steven Spielberg classic “Jurassic Park 3D” opened in fourth with $18.2 million, which is on par with the other live action 3D re-releases (“Titanic” and “Star Wars”). Second place was a virtual tie between “The Croods” and “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”.
