Let me be clear, the IT in which I am reviewing today is the ORIGINAL, not the NEW one. I will not be reviewing the new one until it is requested. I don’t like clowns at all and only saw this one as a dare years ago and remember about it. I’m not even sure if Pennywise is in the new one or if he goes by a different name
But since I saw it, I can and will review it. I may as well do something constructive with my childhood torment right? Anyways, It starts with a little boy chasing a paper boat in the water, then Pennywise nabs him kills him. Cut to the brother mourning. And the parents actually yell at him for being in his dead brother’s room.
I am going to go on a bit of a tangent here. In my opinion, anyone can grieve however they darn well please within legal bounds. What this boy did was not illegal. The parents should not have been angry. If you have two children and one dies, your responsibility is to that second child. You can mourn too, but unless it leads to physical harm of anyone, they may also mourn however they want. Period.
Back to Pennywise, he kills a bunch of people, yadda yadda. No one knows how to stop him. The kids team up to kill him. Old Horror song and dance that everyone knows. As a result they kill the thing and go on. but as adults they realize it didn’t exactly work. And so they go back to do it all again.
I won’t spoil more. I believe I spoiled too much already. But anyways, like I said. I will not be doing the new IT until it is requested in the comments. So if you want that, get typing! 🙂
I give Pennywise 2.5 screams out of 5. you can buy it here.
