It Chapter Two

It Chapter Two
Pennywise is back in Darry, ready to haunt you from the screen.
It Chapter Two is a continuation of the IT plot line.  Based on Stephen Kings novel, IT, the movie took the public like a storm. Talk of the IT sequel started in February 2019. On September 25, 2017, New Line Cinema announced that the sequel would fall on September 6, 2019. IT Chapter Two’s effect on viewers may vary from singing praises to raising eyebrows.

Andrés Muschietti directed the movie. Mushchietti based the movie off of a screenplay that Gary Dauberman wrote. Dauberman based it off Stephen King’s novel. Atomic Arts and Method Studios provided the visuals and effects. The casting in IT Chapter Two is spot on. Even critics agree on that. Bill Skarsgard’s performance as Pennywise leaves you spooked. Bill Hardy as Richie Tozier also left a favorable impression on many.

IT Chapter Two is a horror/supernatural movie, though some say that the movie is too comedic to have its desired effect on the audience. Critics say that the routines and scares are weaker compared to its predecessor. Others say that the movie has the perfect balance of comedy. The grim humor expresses the constant fear of death looming over the Loser’s shoulders.

In the book, the scenes are more gruesome. Details that aren’t in the movie that are mentioned in the book are briefer, making the viewer believe that you should read the book to understand the gravity of the situation. Yet, the movie has stuck with the original plot of the movie, which is very admirable compared to others. The movie draws out for about three hours, plenty of time to include many fine details, but maybe a touch too long.

Though critics and enthusiasts will talk, IT Chapter Two is a compelling movie.
