    I would have preferred a TV-MA Netflix adaptation to what we actually got. There wasn't that much Character development, I couldn't find myself to get attached to the characters, and the monsters (outside The Pale Lady and Harold) were absolutely garbage tier CGI bs. For a Guillermo Del Toro film, the creature effects were really lacking. The story of the movie was pretty good, if a little cliché at times. Girl gets abused by her family, takes revenge on her family for abusing her with a supernatural twist? Didn't we just see that in Unfriended a few years ago? I would argue Unfriended was a better horror movie than this one. I don't know, maybe its a case of Hollywood trying to pander to a younger audience instead of giving the people who actually know what the books were like what they wanted when they heard the film was being made. The movie made me feel like there was a lot more they could have done to flesh out the characters and the themes a bit more.

    I knew the movie it or stranger things was going to be thrown around in this! I haven't seen the movie yet that's why I'm watching this review but from the trailer is it looks a lot like it or stranger.

    My kid just had book fair day and came home with this shit! So weird being an adult sometimes when confronted by vivid childhood memories.

    they actually made all of the characters costumes like the corpse with the lost toe from prosthetics because they wanted it to be real

    If you liked the books, or movie I would recommend Uzumaki the manga by Junji Ito it is disturbing in a thousand ways. There is an adult swim adaptation coming soon as well. cheers!

    When he says “hardcore”, I think of the scene from School of Rock with the song “no you’re not hardcore”

    This movie was terrible! The biggest disappointment of the year. It was like one of the child actors wrote the script. I am beginning to question your taste in movies.

    I liked the story parts themselves but god damn, every time someone was speaking I wanted to shoot myself. One of the most poorly written movies I’ve ever had the displeasure of watching. Bummer because I grew up on those books...

    One thing i wanna know is why it's set in 1968? The first book was published in 1981. Was it so this one could be set apart from the whole 80s nostalgia trend?

    I really didn’t like the 30 jump scares every scene... that sucks. It was just too “Hollywood” for me

    Book fair day and those monthly catalogs were my favorite... I have no idea how I managed to make it through the 90s without ever reading these books!

    This was a good suspenseful thriller. Not really scary, and the plot was at a quick pace. Would like to see the sequel.

    This film, release schedule-wise, is the *perfect* appetizer for _It: Chapter 2._

    I hate how youtube keeps inserting your shitty feed into my suggestions whenever I am looking at movie trailers for recent movies. your channel is fucking toxic , and the fact you think you can actually critique an entire production based on your minimum knowledge of cinema is just pathetic and foul. you're exploiting youtube's filtering systems , and are the modern definition of the standard youtube douchebag . probably married to a blonde , you work no job, inherited everything you own and have never had to pour any effort into anything, including this channel. where most of the fucking content is just your ugly face talking.l. i'm done, and i don't give a fuck how many of your "fans" attack me . I'm being real here, channels like yours just need to die off and stop force feeding shitty material to people for views. There is MY review of YOUR channel! Your channel is more crooked than your fucking jacked up teeth!

    I saw the movie & it did get me going, especially that "creepy Pillsbury doughboy" (errr... woman?) One of the characters definitely deserved to die!!! It's been so long since I've read the stories!!!

    I thought this movie was so silly. The scary stories themselves were great but the main plot/characters etc. were laughably bad

    Some movies can be scary without extreme amounts of gore I am a huge horror fan I saw the movie tonight and I honestly loved it I thought it had some moments that were so unsettling that effected me more than some more intense horror like the conjuring, the scene with the scarecrow was pretty terifying

    Better late than never, just uploaded my video on this. Glad you mentioned that gross out scene. Part of what I loved about this movie. It pushed the boundaries of what a PG-13 film could do...similar to what the books did for kids. Awesome video dude!
