One of the better horror/comedies in recent years
Was not going to see this. Didn't care at all. It looked like standard, cheap, money-grab horror. Having zero interest in IT2, let alone anything else in the theaters lately, we saw this based on a nephew's recommendation (a mistaken inference as he had not even seen it). Turned out to be a great film. It is not zany nor slapstick but has that real-reaction-comedy going for it. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It works for the chilling moments and has some good laughs.
My one complaint is this: Why didn't Brian(?) stand up and kick the bed post he was cuffed to instead of pursuing the friction escape?
