    When Pennywise has ITs eyes going in different directions that's not cgi. The actor was able to do that on his own.

    Worst movie I ever watched. The horror itself is to watch this shit and last till the end before killing yourself or someone for filming this crap. Jeez. It's just an unrealistic movie about kids killing a clown in the end. No character dies, just the stupid clown in the end. And it last for over 2 hrs. OMG. First 5 minutes are great. Then it turns into typical crap that made no sense at all. Absolutely Awful.

    It was an okay movie. Sure there were a few scares but it sound suspenseful music and the loud noises when Pennywise made his move, was really getting on my nerves, as well as the character of Bill. All the kid were just standing there in the house screaming when Pennywise came out of the fridge for George, Eddie and ..I think Jack. Sure they were screaming but it's either flight or fight, and in this case I would of found something in the kitchen to throw at the clown or throw at him. Also Bill really was a pain in the but; when his brother Georgie dies and he almost got the rest of them killed in the house, that he wanted to go back for more and ensure Pennywise dies, not caring about this friend's broken arm or the slashed belly of the chubby friend. One redeeming thing is the Bill Skarsgård and this portrayal of Pennywise; the make up team did a really good job.

    The best part of this film is that its scary. And I mean scary. Its horifying. And it has a good mix of jump scares and scary images. The jump scares make you jump, but then it keeps going and going as pennywise tries his damndest to kill them.

  • Kylie Rose
    Kylie Rose 7 months ago +2

    The acting was good and it was pretty similar to the book. However I do think some of the jump scares were cheap. I personally found this movie to be more of a thriller rather than a horror movie. Don’t get me wrong the movie was great it was just not as scary as expected, and I laughed at more scenes then I ever have in a horror movie.

  • The Artisan

    Am I the only one who thought this movie was just... meh?
    Wasn't scary at all. In the slightest regard, especially compared to the 1990 miniseries.
    A fine example of this is the bathroom scene in which Beverly sees the blood but
    her father does not. That scene in particular was done so much worse in this film.
    In the 1990 miniseries the father was looking down in the drain, getting blood all over
    his fingers but he couldn't see it, yet here, it was so subtle and just stupid.
    The film was also not loaded, but OVERLOADED with jump scares.
    They weren't scary at all, and they would consistently lead to smash cuts which were
    then followed by a more contrasted, peaceful scene. That's pretty much the entire plot.
    The movie is shot well. The acting by the kid's is okay, to say the least. Dialogue? Ridiculous.
    I just wasn't impressed. It was even really boring at times.
    The only good thing about this remake in my opinion is Skarsgard's portrayal as Pennywise
    as well as the look of Pennywise, which I think they got right. Other than that though
    I think this remake is getting way too much credit, over hype.

    If you jumped when it was a jump scare, which I did 90% of the time through the movie, then it is a good scary movie. People forget that scary movies should be judged off how SCARY it is, like how freaked out you are when you go to bed alone, and this movie definitely did that to people.

    Pennywise looked awesome but the movie wasn’t as good as per usual with most Stephen King’s movies vs books. Never liked “It” as a book or the older movie. The acting was really good. It did seem like Stranger Things. I liked the lead and I liked each individual character. I agree about the violence towards kids comment. I was surprised. It helped with the depth. I liked Pennywise, he was creepy. I liked the actors. They were great. I felt meh about the resolution and it was a little slow. It seems like there’s always a lot of hype surrounding Steven King movies and I’m always disappointed by them. With the exception of Misery and Pet Cemetary. If you like Steven King books you probably don’t like the movies. The books are always better.

    As a horror movie enthusiast I was actually disappinted with this movie. All the scares where to cheap to even give me the nostalgia feel, the cgi was terrible in some parts, simple details that just werent taken care of production wise, barely any characters developed, and overall just a boring movie that couldnt get me to feel for any of the characters. Hell the dad was the creepiest part of the movie. Essiently 2 hours of my life I wish I could get back.

  • Michael Watson
    Michael Watson 10 months ago

    A good film but very disappointed by the lack of dread and tension. I dunno, the kids are going through serious trauma but there was never a point where you felt terrified or worried about them. They all just went about happy, cracking jokes, having fun like any other kid through to the very end. Compare this to the highway scene in "Nocturnal Animals", that is real horror right there. Why didn't I ever feel that kind of tension whenever Pennywise showed up?

    andersenkalle 10 months ago

    This movie looks pretty good and the kids are great. But it wasn’t one bit scary. Very few disturbing scenes. The horror parts are pretty much just filled with music that tells the audience how to feel. A bunch of loud noises and typical horror build up. Also, i don’t even understand how Pennywise is considered scary. Looks ridiculous. It’s certainly not a bad movie, it has good things in it (especially the child actors) but when it came to the horror i was really, really bored. Fine film but also highly overrated in my opinion.

    I’ve been a horror fanatic for years, since I was 3. I can say that this movie wasn’t that scary but I did appreciate the disturbing images, the acting was great at the beginning but got iffy nearing the end, the effects and lighting were amazing, and the clown himself was (in my opinion) portrayed much better in this remake than the original. I’d say this is a huge step from the usually cliche bull crap and I can’t wait for IT chapter two.

    Awesome review, man. Could we get an IT 1990 review?

  • Albedo Yuriev
    Albedo Yuriev 10 months ago

    I thought this is overrated, bad, and it's just plain generic.
    Pennywise looks scary, but he's not scary at all. Even looking scary is already raises the red flag. One might think that the goal would work best if he would actually look inviting and friendly.
    Everytime he charges after the kids he constantly seizes out. I mean why does he have to jerk around so much?
    The scene where Pennywise kidnapped Beverly is out of character for him. Pennywise wouldn't do that. I don't recall him ever doing that in both the book and the mini series. What he would have done was quickly kill then eat her, and create an illusion of her, just like he did with Gorgie; not use her as bait. Like I said, out of character.
    When the loosers club went into the house the first time, how well could they have expected things to go? They just strolled right in without any sort of protection. Thats not realism nor being smart, that pretty much asking to get killed. I seriously doubt bitch slapping an ancient godlike entity is going to do much good.
    So many opportunities for Pennywise eat the loosers clubs, but he spends nearly the entire movie just playing around. The scene down in the well, Pennywise had his mouth on...Stan I think, but he just let go and took off. He had plenty of time to bite his face off, let alone his head.
    Everytime the kids where trying to have a serious discussion about the tragedies and whatever else was going on, Eddie constantly just ruins the mood by saying sex jokes.
    The scene when all the kids went swimming...I can't the only one that thought it was very disturbing and uncomfortable to sit through.
    At the end of the movie when Beverly was floating in the air...I couldn't believe that happened just to push the poor excuse for a love triangle. It's not even brought up afterward, only to end it Bill and Beverly, not with Ben. The whole damsel in distress thing was just pointless. Like I said, Pennywise doesn't kidnap and bait his victims.
    Henry Bowers looks tough one minute, but the second his father is around he's nothing more than a bitch.
    Where was the werewolf? Where was the mummy? IT relys too much on his clown and leper forms, so there's not much on the variety department.
    Mike's character is butchered. Mike and Bill are the two most important characters in the loosers club. In the book, Bill serves as the leader because he's the one with the strongest imagination. Mike is suppose to be the one that helps bring hold the group together, but here he's just...there, and barely says or does anything at all.
    The 90's mini series film is far superior because it was able to stay in touch with the book. The 2017 remake is a cheap parody knockoff that strayed too far from the book. I just don't understand why people think this movie is good at all.
    Yes, I do agree that the mini series had it's flaws as well, but it still did better.

    this movie was pretty fucking stupid. they tried to bridge science fiction with horror and it failed. people with simple brains think it was scary and good. it was terrible. it would've been good if they made it only a scary movie and not thrown in weird shit that defied science.

  • Carlito1085
    Carlito1085 10 months ago

    Majorly disappointed after watching the remake.
    To me it lacked the character, pacing, flow, and tension (a lot of which came through the great score) of the original, not to mention some of the characters in the remake served no purpose what so ever other than just being there to make up the numbers. In my opinion, Bill, Eddie, Eddie's mother, Henry, and Belch didn't come remotely close to their 1990 counterparts, while Tim Curry as Pennywise was one of the best acting performances I've ever seen, period. I think Beverly and Ben, and even Mike for what he had, those 3 did a really good job in the remake so credit where it's due.
    The remake was basically a pick and mix of jump scares thrown in all over the place, with them going to the well way too much.
    To those criticizing the original, part 2 of the mini-series deserves its criticism, but part 1 was masterfully done and full of charm and character. It really captured the look and feel of the 1950's-1960's from top to bottom.

    it was an amazing horror movie in my opinion. too many “horror” movies are just 2 hour long tropes filled with cheap and loud jump scares whereas movies like It are what horror really should be. the horror in this movie was truly unnerving and disturbing and made you say wow that is truly terrifying to think about like being in that situation. honestly probably one of if not my favorite movies ever

    IT (2017) was worse than IT (1990). And IT (1990) sucked balls. If you want to be scared by clowns, I would suggest the movie "Killer Klowns from Outer Space".

    I liked this movie not because of the scares, although it was scary. I loved it cause it's so different than any other horror movie I've seen in my whole life. Some of the actors were just terrific, the ending couldn't be better, and it was just amazingly done. This movie is not just another low budget money grabber like most of the movies out there, this movie has heart.

    I liked the Clown in the movie, they did a good job with that. And his Character, The modern humor was funny. But i expected to see Pennywise More, I enjoyed the Original a bit better. The original was Very Good. This movie was just Okay.. Part 2 should be better probably.
    But the Top Horror movies for me that are better than IT, are the Conjuring, Annabel, & Insidious

    i just watched the movie and felt a bit disappointed. (spoilers alert)
    this movie was fucking scary af and disturbing in the first 1 hour or so, and this is coming from a guy who watched alot of horror/thriller movies. it was creepy but then it started slowly to turn into some kids adventure to beat the living crap of a weak ass clown.
    non of the "losers" group died.. srsly ? everyone survived expect for poor goerge who had a disturbing death at the start of the movie, a much not needed romance bw billy and the girl but that was not the problem here. we also don't see what happened with the floating kids ? did they come back alive ? imo there should've been some of the kids killed and at the end 2 or 3 at most survives. it would've been more intense than wtv the last 40 mins of the movie was all about.
    this could've been an awesometacular but they kinda ruined it. nd that's probably why it has so many mixed reviews.
