CHAPTER 1: Seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, are about to face their worst nightmare — an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town’s children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise.
MY RATING: (★★★★..Overall)
As you can tell from the ratings, Chapter Two doesn’t meet the expectations of It (essentially Chapter One), but it does wrap everything up somewhat neatly. Is this movie scary …HELL YES. Is it disturbing …HELL TO THE YES, but so was the made-for-TV movie that came out in 1990. However, when you add years of technology and Bill Skarsgard, you’re going to get something exponentially more frightening.
I would definitely recommend this movie but be warned, it’s a creepy clown, and to quote it best by Paperback from Hell — “Since time immemorial, humankind’s greatest natural predator has been the clown,” and Pennywise is definitely the creepiest one out there.
Not so much splatter or gore, but some parts are seriously disturbing (not Hereditary disturbing), but it holds its own. Told in two parts, the first perspective being from the kids and Chapter Two as adults that are led back to Deary because the disappearances are still happening. It’s a great movie, creepy, with great jump scares, and everything to make you wonder about every dark corner.
With all that said …Happy Viewing!
