The kids are all grown up now and they are much better equipped to take on the big, bad clown. Or not.
I’m not going to spend much time on this movie; suffice to say it was overlong, over-stuffed, and under-paced. Some (as in a lot) of the scenes were so hokey that I almost walked out a few times, especially when they did a bad rip-off of a good scene from The Thing. And the monster was so unconvincing that there was really no tension. This scary movie was not a bit scary.
As you can tell, I can’t recommend this one. Which is too bad, because I thought the first one was very good. There are no extra scenes.
