It Chapter Two Review

by cnkguy
It Chapter Two Review

The Bill Hader movie. This is a spoiler-free review (Above the Read More Line that hopefully doesn’t disappear)

1. Supernatural or psychological or metaphorical in someway? Supernatural of course. Supernatural but Pennywise is a metaphor for childhood trauma

2. How scary was it? It wasn’t super scary. Part of it was the Pennywise haunt sequences went on for too long, another part of it that some of the stuff was taken less seriously. I think the latter may be because it is about grownups facing childhood fears and looking through them at a now adult perspective and realizing while they still may be scary, it can also be a bit silly. 6.4/10

3. Jump scares or nah? Yes.

4. Is there blood and gore? There is a lot of blood.

5. On a scale of 1 – 10 (10 being Alien: Covenant), how dumb were the characters? Huh, I never really thought they did anything too dumb. Maybe 2.5/10. Good for them.

6. Does that story make logical sense if you think about it too long? It’s a weird movie based on an even weirder book. Don’t ask yourself, “Why doesn’t Pennywise just kill them already?”

This is a giant movie. Part of that was to give it an epic feel as it weaves past and present together to tell one cohesive narrative about these characters. Another part of that came from really drawn out spooky sequences. They really could have trimmed some of those (though scene with Bill Hader is crucial to stay completely intact). It’s also very heartfelt, and you should find yourself really feeling for these characters (especially Bill Hader as Richie). It is a worthwhile reflection on how we can carry our childhood trauma’s throughout life and let them shape our adulthood.

Something that has been talked a lot about regarding this movie is the opening scene. It’s lifted straight from the text. While I do feel this movie could have gone without depicting a hate crime (It’s painful and I really wish they hadn’t), I do understand that it contextualizes Derry and how the town led to certain traumas some of the characters carried throughout their life. It may feel gratuitous though with the extent they took it to.

Man this is based on a weird book. While they go skim on some of the weird stuff, a lot of it is brought back in still weird ways. I never really thought It was ripe for an adaption, but I do think this team put together a really good one with plenty of heart and reasons to care. 7/10

Bill Hader

Spoiler-y thoughts below

“Thanks for showing up Stanley” Damn, that got me.

“You’re a sloppy bitch”

Richie impersonating Pennywise saying “Time to float” and laughing it off while saying “Remember he used to say that?” was amazing. Rewarding in a surreal way.

I was really hoping Richie and Eddie would at least kiss a bit before the end.

The casting was God damn insane. Older Stanley and Young Stanley are the same person from two different timelines.

I’m a bit mad about the girl with the birth mark dying. It would have been a nice little way for the man in the beginning who gave her the stuffed animal to live on.

Kinda weird how Ben had a page from his year book for 27 YEARS IN HIS POCKET

Guys, please refrain from cute couple kissing as my man mourns the loss of the man he loved but was never brave enough to confess his love to. Please.

I honestly might buy fake glasses to look a little more like how Bill Hader looks in this movie.

Girl with Flowers

Girl with Flowers

The only time I saw anything paranormal was one night when I was about 13 I was sitting on my porch at night. Well, across the street in the neighbor’s driveway (where no one lived), I saw a girl. I thought to myself, there’s no way. So a car was passing by, so I could see if I was seeing something. Nope. I wasn’t. She was standing in a white dress, holding flowers. I ran inside to my mom, we went outside and she was gone. Well, a few nights later I saw her again. I never saw her after that . My mom said when she was younger, a girl selling girlscout cookies got hit by a car and died there. And one night my sister was talking about how she use to always see a ghost over there. I asked her what it looked like and she described her exactly as I saw her. It’s crazy once you see something paranormal for the first time.

FYNK James: 6.5/10 Oh that’s sad. Thanks for sharing the scares!

Something was thumping on my door

Something was thumping on my door

readingalcove submitted:

Background info- About four years ago, my husband went away for a few months to upgrade in his trade, and I was home alone for that time. I don’t get out much, especially without someone to take me out, so I spent a lot of time indoors. We lived in a basement suite, with roads on two sides of the house and an alley on one, then the basement door and back yard faced the neighbouring house. The door had a semicircle window near the top that I could look out if I stood on tiptoe. Also, nothing about the house changed and I lived down there until this spring without another incident, so I think I can rule out environmental factors as a cause. BC Canada, lower mainland. Spring.

One day, while he was away, I spent the whole day in. Starting in the early afternoon, I kept hearing sets of four thumps. Thum-thump, thum-thump, spaced like that. I didn’t think much of it, it sounded like a heavy truck hitting a speed bump or a pothole (thum hitting the bump with the wheel, then thump of the wheel landing on the other side, and then the same with the hind wheel). It rattled the house a bit, but it was a shitty suite and a lot of things did. It wasn’t constant, but I thought it was odd for so many trucks to be going by, especially as it got later and traffic thinned.

Even as it got quite late, it continued, if anything growing more frequent, and I remember being annoyed, but I eventually fell asleep.

I woke up to pounding and everything shaking. I thought it was an earth quake, the most severe I’d ever felt. I tried to find my phone, so I could check and text my partner, but couldn’t find it, and slowly became aware that the shaking and pounding were still to that same pattern, and that it was on the door. BANGBANG BANGBANG, more rapid and louder than before.

I figured it was someone looking for the previous tenant, but I didn’t want to open the door to cops (cops came to my previous apartment looking for the old tenant) or someone looking for a fight, so I kept all the lights off so no one could see that I was there, and crept up to the front door. I couldn’t see anyone through the window, but my eye level just met the bottom of the frame (I’m short), so I could only have seen someone taller than me. I figured they were crouching, hiding.

Still trying to be really quiet, I kicked all the shoes by the door into a pile, and stepped up onto them, getting myself just the few inches more that I needed to look out and down, and expected to see someone crouching with a weapon, or some uniform cop, also crouching with weapons.

Instead, there was a kid outside. He was impossibly white with dark hair; he looked greyscale and almost like he was glowing in the moonlight, and he was absolutely whaling on the door with both fists, with strength that felt like it would rattle it off its hinges; completely unnatural strength for someone(something) that small.

I’m witchy, so I thought somehow that could help, but I was too tired to think, and it was too dark to find anything (I was still trying to be inconspicuous), so I just gathered all the energy I could muster and mentally (/spiritually?) pushed.

In the morning I woke up on my bed, wearing my housecoat, on top of the covers, with my bedroom door wide open. I didn’t go to bed that way, I never do. The shoes were still in a messy pile by the door. I’ve never sleep walked, I had no instances of sleep paralysis within years of that incident, and I rarely remember dreams for more than a few minutes.

It’s both the scariest paranormal experience I’ve had and the hardest for me to debunk.

James: 8/10 That went in a direction I wasn’t quite expecting. Thanks for sharing the scares!

It wasn't her.

This one happened this year.

So, my bedroom is right next to the stairs and the bathroom. When the bathroom is being used, my sister will often pass the time waiting for it to open by hanging out in my doorway or talking to me, seeing what I’m doing.

It was late one night, my lights were off and I was just on my laptop as I usually am. My sister came downstairs from her room, probably to use the bathroom, and decided to hang out in my doorway for a little bit. We had some kind of a small conversation and then I went back to paying attention to my laptop.

After a very short amount of time, I felt my leg being grabbed. It was not a subtle grab. My immediate thought was that my sister was being a straight up-freak and had decided to crawl on my floor and grab my leg as a joke or a way to scare me. My sister sometimes does really WEIRD things as to get a laugh, a rise, or just because it strikes her fancy, so this is 100% not out of the ordinary for her.

I immediately turned my attention to the ground to yell at her for being a total effing weirdo when my eyes are instead drawn to the light coming from the hallway that is visible from my door being ajar.

I’m gonna guess that you know what I’m about to say I say, given the title of this story.

It was my sister. Who very much was NOT crawling on the ground and grabbing legs, but was instead still near my doorway waiting for the bathroom. 

(I did let her know immediately that this just happened, but because at this point we’re both WELL aware that our house is haunted – and after a number of paranormal experiences it just kinda stops being interesting or scary – we both kinda just “WELP” ‘ed at each other and shrug our shoulders after. )

James: 7/10 Leg grabbing is always the most intense form of jump scaring someone. I guess the ghost knows that. Thanks for sharing the scares!
