saw it last night. thought it was fucking great.
skarsgard absolutely nailed pennywise. he’s more alien and animal than in the book, therefore scarier. he was better than tim curry, i have to say.
for a hollywood horror the amount of weirdness around the edges was really refreshing. was genuinely shocked at how graphic georgie’s murder was.
the kids! the kids were so good!
parts of it were genuinely funny, which i really liked. the door signs in neibolt street killed everyone in the cinema “VERY VERY SCARY” “SCARY” “NOT SCARY AT ALL!”
some of the imagery was absolutely stunning/haunting. the V of balloons outside neibolt street, when IT is in the bushes eating georgie’s hand and waving to mike, the slow reveal of IT in the refrigerator
the CGI looked ropey at certain points.
the ending got a bit too hollywood, plus just braying fuck out of IT with baseball bats and crowbars was really dumb (yet somehow still better than the giant spider)
the music could have been dialed back a bit. i was already creeped out at the right points, ffs.
still, fucking tops. would watch that again quite happily.
