I’m a wuss, and I’m not ashamed. But I am that weird kind of wuss that doesn’t mind being scared. Does that make sense? I’m the one that instigates the scary movie nights, and then I’m the only one who was genuinely cold-sweat scared. I also adore Stephen King. So, when the trailer for IT: Chapter 2 came out, of course, I thought it was a great idea to watch it, when I was in bed at midnight. I’m a really intelligent person, obviously.
And then I thought it would be a great idea, to watch it again and record my thoughts. Because once wasn’t enough apparently.
Trailer- Let’s watch it
00:00 Right of the bat I feel nauseous. And my groin feels weak, so I’m debating whether or not to pause it and go to the bathroom…Yeah, I think that’s smart. BRB.
0:12 Old ladies suck.
0:20 is this a thing people do? Randomly go to their old house, and look around? Should I do it?
0:30 I don’t think I’m going to visit my grandma anymore.
1:05 this is what it feels like when you tell a joke, and wait for the laughter, but instead there is silence. Not that it ever happens to me of course.
1:50 This is the bit that haunted me, first time watching it. Stupid old ladies.
1:56 Hi Bill Skarsguard.
1:59 Is the old lady grinding?
2:15 I’m going to do this when I’m an old lady, and company comes over.
2:25 James McAvoy is such a talent.
2:31 This reminds me on the end of Mary Poppins Returns.
2:47 It’s Winnie the Pooh.
Do you know what’s hilarious? I’ve started to get a headache. No joke. Why do I put myself through this?
Any way my hopes are super high for this movie for good reason. King himself has given it his blessing saying “Looking forward to IT CHAPTER 2? You should be. I’ve seen it, and it’s terrific.” Coming from him, that is as good as a guarantee that it is going to epic.
Andy Muschietti will be returning to take care of chapter 2. So, it remains in his capable hands.
In a nutshell, the Losers Club return to their home town to defeat the evil that is Pennywise. Honestly, they are so brave, I don’t want to visit my hometown, and Pennywise isn’t even there.
The film also looks like It will be cut to feature the Losers club in their younger years, I don’t know if they will be flashbacks. Honestly, I would rather it if in those scenes, it turns out that Pennywise is making them appear younger. Since he feeds off fear, and everything is scarier when you are young. Like Broccoli.
Maybe we will be getting an origin story to Pennywise? Which looks like it might be different from the book.
Are you excited to be scared silly? Me too. Ps: I still have a headache.
