Keep away from children! This film is not for them, despite the fact that all protagonists are tweens. They’re young but they’re in a horror movie and they’re here to suffer. As such, they get beaten in the cruelest ways. For a while, the script opposes each child in the “losers’ club” to Pennywise, one of the creepiest clowns in film history. He fucks with them then leaves, often interrupted.
Perfect sound, pacing, lighting, perfect acting and overall cinematography; It is nearly flawless. It is quite simply one of the best horror movies ever made, and, undoubtedly, one of the scariest. In comparison with the 1990 mini-series by the same title, everything, here, is more extreme, sad, scary and shocking. You get a bunch of solid jump scares that fool you even if you expect them.
Many special effects are computer generated and that’s not really a problem. It’s a style. Complaining about the abundance of compositing would be nitpicking. The characters’ chemistry is representative of the actors’ bounding on set. Their relationships are warm and compelling. The adults are all scums. This is the first part of a duology and it takes place in the 1980’s.
