[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6674:]]The Evil Dead reboot topped this weekend’s box office coming in at $26 million giving it the 10th best for a horror opener.

It received a C+ for its audience CinemaScore, which is on par for horror films, but doesn’t suggest Evil Dead doing much better than $50 million overall.
