    Sony's remake of "Evil Dead" performed better than expected, but fell just below the best horror film opening of the year. "Evil Dead" took #1 for the weekend, a position Paramount hoped to retain for its expensive "G.I. Joe: Retaliation." That film is a global hit, but is fighting for the #2 spot w...
