    What the hell happened here??

    I was really exited for this when I first heard that Blumhouse was producing and Efron was attached to it.  Such potential!

    I wasn’t at all prepared for how bad they were going to ruin this story.  It was an awful, nonsensical adaptation from the original story and absolutely every performance was terrible and lifeless.  

    The special effects were seriously better in the original. In 1984.  Before I was born.  

    Just…ugh.

    Ooooo boy what a ride!!  Loved every second of this!

    So glad they switched gears and brought Sam Raimi in to expertly spatter his style all over this.  He friggin’ nailed it!

    Im glad I saw this at 10 PM, but I also kind of wish I would have seen an earlier showing so I could watch the unprepared parents escort their terrified children from the theater. 

    Hail to the Chin!

    This was a pretty fun watch.  It was more adult than I expected based on the PG rating and the trailer.  I was telling my wife in the Power Glove part about how dumb it was, and right on cue, they nailed exactly my experience with it.  I got to say “see, I told you!”, which is a rare moment for me!

    I grew up right in the same age range as the main character, also in Chicagoland, and this…

    Bill Hader, you are truly magnificent.  I’m so glad the world has you, and that you share your talent with us.  

    I’m really not sure if I’ve seen better casting then in IT: Chapter 2.  Everyone, young and old, was perfect.  

    I just wish that this wasn’t so scary so that everyone could see how good it was.  

    I loved every minute of it and will watch it on repeat when I eventually own it.
