The plot of the chapter 2 is set 27 years after the part 1 with all children now grown up. And as philosophical as it gets, the movie will circle back you again and again on a few things, and that is ‘conquer your demons within’ and ‘face your fears’. But it does so in a chillingly horrifying way that the cliché kindergarten lessons look surreal and take a new face altogether.
IT Chapter 2 is packed with jump scares and some frightening scene that launches this movie straight into the hall of fame of scary movies. The characters are engaging and with flashbacks going on of their childhood, the story couldn’t be tied any better. Pennywise’s many devilish faces is one of the USP of the movie and keeps you hooked despite it having almost a 3-hour long run.
So Should You Go Watch This Movie?
Definitely. It’s scary, it has a back story going on, and it engages you like no other. So, yes, do go watch and have an eerily chilling weekend.
