It Chapter Two is the continuation from the critically acclaimed horror experience of the same name from 2017, and follows the Losers Club in their adulthood. The adaptation of Stephen King’s thriller novel was a fantastic experience the first time around, and the second is a different, yet equally phenomenal, showcase, that is both a follow up and a stand-alone experience worthy of praise from filmmaker Andy Muschietti.
NOTE: There will be no spoilers from It Chapter Two in this review, but there will be references to the first, so if you have not watched the first film, or want to go in completely fresh, we suggest turning back now. If not, then read on.
The film sees the Losers Club, comprising of Bill, Beverly, Stanley, Richie, Mike, Eddie, and Ben, all well into their adulthood, as the film is set 27 years after the events of the first. After tragedy strikes in Derry, Pennywise the Dancing Clown makes his cyclical reappearance in the town, and strange things are set in motion. Mike, who is the only member of the Losers Club to remain in the town, summons the rest of the gang to face up against Pennywise once again, just as they did when they were kids, by invoking the pact they made when they first faced the IT.
The second installment is soaked in the mystery thriller/suspense you feel when reading the book...
Bill Skarsgard reprises his role as the interdimensional space being, and has evolved the character from the first installment...
Loves games with deep character development and a rich storyline. Also, shooty-shooties. Loathes microtransactions. Likes to use sarcasm and metaphors.
