I will spare you the details and gore that go along with the encounters.
However, what some fans of the film may have spotted while they watched the new flick is that the old Pennywise makes a small appearance.
It is quite self-aware as a film, and with the choice to shift the setting to the 80s, director Andy Muschietti takes full advantage of this.
The film stars Jaeden Lieberher and Bill Skarsgård as Bill Denbrough and Pennywise the Dancing Clown, respectively, and Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs among others play supporting roles.
“Horror movies are pretty reliable because they are so cheaply made”, he said. Not much – or so you think.
“We shot it for additional shooting, and the scene turned out really, really disturbing. and I’m not the clown, I look more like myself”. After seeing the 2017 movie though, I can say that Bill Skarsgard’s portrayal is masterful. Tim Curry is Tim Curry and nobody will do Tim Curry as good as Tim Curry.
It was revealed in a podcast at Variety that the history of Pennywise dates back a few centuries ago, specifically during the 1600s. More problematic is the fact that these two are immediately subject to torment (either by Pennywise or Henry Bowers) subsequently. Playing on all of the children’s different fears, It features burned corpses, headless men, zombies, a creepy Picasso-esque… thing with a flute, and of course clowns.
In IT, though, Pennywise is front and center throughout the movie.
I have been looking forward to this film since the first trailer was released back in March.
Apparently, at one point, we were going to see more of the journey that Pennywise has taken on Earth.
Another clear example of some fears planted in reality would be that of Bill who had lost a brother to Pennywise. You can sense that it’s clearly not just a clown.
Well, it turns out they actually nearly did cover it. Everyone has fears of something as children, and for some those fears don’t escape you, they stick to you for years to come even in adulthood. Still, “It” is much better than I was expecting and, not surprising for those that have seen the original television film or read the book, we will have an opportunity to float again. There are several points in the first act of the film that felt either rushed or lacked a satisfactory explanation for a character’s situation. Even estimates on the shallower side of the sewer are putting it at $50 million for this weekend alone, with some predicting Pennywise will devour $55 million to $60 million worth of human fears. Never have. I don’t like the tension of being scared, I don’t like monsters, I especially don’t like the discordant violin sound cliché that every horror movie seems to have to try and scare us.
