What We Thought

Stephen King’s novel adaptation the movie “IT” has lot of jump scare moments and well acted by the young actors. The screenplay and background score will keep you engrossed in the movie. If this movie would had in been 3D then certain scenes in the movie would really scared you. Now whenever I will see a red floating balloon, would remind of this movie. Now I am looking forward to see the chapter two which is under production.

The movie “IT” is based on the  Stephen King‘s 1986 novel  with the same name. This is the first installment of the movie in a planned duology. The novel was previously adapted into a 1990 miniseries. The film opts to only take on the childhood half of King’s story, and time jumps it to the late ’80s instead of the 1950s, presumably so the expected volume two can take place in our present day. Kundos to the casting director for a good cast and good script which kept us on the edge of seat asking for more. The movie has 7 characters which has been defined very well by the director and script.

Bill Denbrough (Jaeden Lieberher) who is the one of the main lead of the movie, his stutter is what binds him to the group and transforms him into Big Bill, the leader. He is searching for his younger brother Georgie Denbrough (Jackson Robert Scott) who goes missing in the starting of the movie while playing with  paper boat on rainy day near the house.

 Ben Hanscom (Jeremy Ray Taylor) is a new kid in the town and loves to read books, while in school library , he is the one who find out the the history of the town Derry and how people disappear. Beverly Marsh (Sophia Lillis) is a tomboyish girl, the only girl in the group, is slightly older, and she is abused by her father Mr. Marsh (Stephen Bogaert) at home. At school, she’s been branded promiscuous and  though there’s no truth to that accusation. She’s just a smart, considerate girl who tends to keep to herself. Eddie Kaspbrak (Jack Dylan Grazer) has fear of gray water, also take medicine time to time given by his mother. Stanley Uris (Wyatt Oleff) fears being picked on for his Judaism, though he is also deeply skeptical of religion, he has fear of the painting of lady with obscure face (actually reminded me of the character from the 2013 movie “Mama”.

Richie Tozier (Finn Wolfhard)  has a fear being abducted and forgotten about. Mike Hanlon (Chosen Jacobs) who is Black kid and  lives on a nearby sheep farm, where his chores include some of the more challenging work farmers need to do. He had lost his parents in a house fire. All these school kids have trouble with school bully Henry Bowers (Nicholas Hamilton) and friends and they get called as the “Losers Club”. The kids learn that their town is in the grip of an evil force who emerges every 27 years to feast on the locals, particularly the children.

This “It” generally takes the form of Pennywise (played by Bill Skarsgård),  shape shifting an old-school circus clown with menacing yellow eyes who lives in the town’s sewers and whose presence is sometimes announced by an ominous, free-floating red balloon.

The movie has lot of jump scare moment especially I liked the scene when the kids are at the garage of Bill’s home and watching slides on the projector and the clown appears on the screen and pops out to scare the kids. If that scene would have been in 3D version then it would have scared the hell out of me.

There are from gross scene like the blood spattered in the Beverly’s bathroom, attack on the Eddie by a leper like person. But I am sure after watching the movie anywhere if you see a red floating balloon , you will related to this movie. Sound  and music is chilling and will haunt you after you leave the theater. And the dialogue by Pennywise “We all float down here” should become famous on social media.
