The return Of Pennywise is worth the price of admission

What is it with clowns? 

In the new film IT Chapter Two,  directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Gary Dauberman, a haunted clown named Pennywise is the main focus. Pennywise is an evil clown who preys on children in the small town of Derry, Maine.

In the first creation of  IT – IT Chapter One, a group of teenagers named the Losers Club defeated the evil clown Pennywise. In the new movie IT Chapter Two, Pennywise is back in Derry after 27 years. The Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them all back to Derry. The Losers must conquer their deepest fears to completely destroy the shape-shifting Pennywise, now more powerful than ever.

If you want a horror movie that has humor in it as well, IT Chapter Two is definitely the one to watch. For the most part, Muschietti’s sequel is a tightly-constructed and balances humor and horror in a satisfying way. At two hours and fifty minutes, It Chapter Two is a very long movie. Even though it is a very long movie, it still holds the attention of the audience. Every section is loaded with memorable action moments, as well as many scenes that will make you laugh.

Director Andy Muschietti did an amazing job creating this movie. Also, all the cast members including Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone and Andy Bean did a stunning job acting in this film. The main job of the actors was to play the older versions of the kids from the first film. The adult cast did an outstanding job playing the older versions of the kids in this film. Yes, some of them may not look like them physically, but they still knocked their parts out of the water.

Overall, I highly recommend everyone to go see IT Chapter Two as it was a very interesting, plot-filled movie. This film was written very well and had a very great story. Even if you have not seen IT Chapter One, I think it is still reasonable to see the second movie in the sequel.
