Storyline Heading
Twenty-seven years after the Losers Club defeated Pennywise, he has returned to terrorize the town of Derry once more. Now adults, the Losers have long since gone their separate ways. However, people are disappearing again, so Mike, the only one of the group to remain in their hometown, calls the others home. Damaged by the experiences of their past, they must each conquer their deepest fears to destroy Pennywise once and for all...putting them directly in the path of the shape-shifting clown that has become deadlier than ever.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Thriller - This nearly 3-hour sequel to the hit 2017 horror film is actually an adaptation of the second half of the book upon which it is based. While the young cast of the first film returns as well as Bill Skarsgard as the evil clown Pennywise, the focus is on the characters as adults, so there are some known actors in starring roles this time, most notably Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Bill Hader. Constant language, graphic violence, dark and mature subject matter, and lots of disturbing moments, including involving children, make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Considering the challenges associated with adapting the second half of the novel, the filmmakers have done an adequate job, which is probably all that's needed to make Chapter Two a major box office success.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average "It Chapter Two" can be a sprawling, unwieldy mess—overlong, overstuffed and full of frustrating detours—but its casting is so spot-on, its actors have such great chemistry and its monster effects are so deliriously ghoulish that the film keeps you hooked.

USA Today Full Review
Good ...packs enough monsters and scares in its 2 hours and 45 minutes to satiate gore hounds. It's also an ambitious, thought-provoking work that aims for more: While not as tight or affecting as the original tale...

NY Post Full Review
Good ...immensely satisfying... What it's not is very scary. Speaking as somebody who's afraid of spoiled milk, I was not unnerved by anything other than Bill Skarsgård's still-freaky Pennywise the Clown. You get "Stranger Things”-style spooks here, and that's just fine.

The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 23 moviegoers:
TEENS: The lone male and the two ladies all enjoyed "IT," but didn't feel it was anything special.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The reviews are pretty mixed. About 40% of the males and females loved "IT," with another 30% of the males and 40% of the females indicating that they enjoyed this movie very much. Unfortunately, a full 40% of the males and 30% of the females rated it "good/average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
ADULTS: One male loved it, one enjoyed it very much and one rated it just "good/average." The ladies enjoyed it slightly more with 40% loving "IT," 40% enjoying "IT" very much and only 20% rating it just "good/average," which isn't a bad review, it's just a bit low.
