Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog. Last Saturday, Andrew talked me in to going to see ‘IT’. There were two problems with that… 1. I DO NOT like clowns. 2. I can’t sit in a movie theatre for 2 and a half hours being scared by Pennywise. But Andrew promised me popcorn and I can’t resist movie theatre popcorn with butter. So I caved in and went with him and I don’t regret seeing the movie.
Honestly, when I saw the previews for the movie I thought it was just going to be another crappy scary movie with a crappy plot line and crappy actors with too many unnecessary jump scares. Jump scares tick me off because I always get scared then Andrew laughs at me. (He doesn’t get scared easily so he gets joy out of laughing at me). But right from the beginning of the movie all the way to the end is an amazing plot line. It tells a story and actually gets you invested into the characters. You start to care about the characters and you get emotionally invested towards them. The kid actors were absolutely amazing which made the movie so much better. Don’t even get me started on the clown. That was such amazing acting and scared the crap out of me.
It was so much more than just a scary movie. There was lots of swearing, inappropriate humor (my favorite), fighting, “romance moments”, and then the scary parts. I was actually pretty sad when the movie ended. I wanted it to keep going because it just kept pulling me into the story. Then on the screen at the end it said “Chapter 1” so everybody automatically got excited to see there’s going to be a Chapter 2 coming out in the future.
Overal I would not hesitate to give IT 5 stars. I will defiantly be waiting excitedly with everybody else for Chapter 2. Stephen King is the master at writing horror books. I heard the movie didn’t even capture how truly scary the book is, so I might have to read the book eventually. If I do, I’ll let you know how IT is! I hope you all liked reading! 💙
