This “IT” season 2 is one of those rare movies that is native in its handling of the source. Andy Muschietti does an exceptional job of balancing the horror elements mixed with the comedic aspects of the movie.
“IT’ movie is not the typical kind of horror movie, filled with false jump scares, but one that relies on building the atmosphere through tension. It is also commendable that all the scary scenes take place during daytime and not during the clichéd night sequences that we see in almost all the movies of this genre.
The plot and the characters are not well developed at all but they do the best as per their capabilities. Because the writer and the director have a good understanding of the book they’ve adapted.
They have changed a masterpiece (the book) into a silly entertaining movie. It’s not even frightening at all (except the first scene we see the clown).
The first season was going good. People like the theme and the story of the “IT”. They are waiting for the season 2 excitedly. As they like the previous characters and their performance.
The acting of the kids is too good to believe, and the happenings & mystery filled storyline tries to engage you to the end. And it succeeds at times but lacks the punch it needed to build up a great mystery. There are a few moments of horrifying scenes but it is not as much as shown in trailers.
Overall it’s a good film with a mysterious storyline and some horrifying elements about a monstrous character. It will bring all these thrilling moments in a very different way.
