The film works primarily because of its big heart and ability to engage our emotions while not turning off our brains.
Doesn’t compromise and for those who love a grittier, less audience-friendly flavor of horror, it’s a must-see.

Not bad enough to be interesting and not good enough to be worth paying money for.
Comedy in the vein of "The Hangover" with a little "Weekend at Bernie’s" thrown in for good measure.
