BBG Loves: It Chapter Two

11 September 2019

It Chapter Two is not for the faint-hearted, but the humour and romance elements make the horror decisively less traumatic to watch.

It Chapter Two, the sequel to 2017's horror blockbuster success It and adaptation of Stephen King's 1986 epic novel, hit cinemas last week. It is 27 years later and the Losers' Club are all grown up, living far away from their hometown of Derry, Maine, and each other, having supplanted most of their experiences of Pennywise and each other. After making a blood vow as kids, Mike brings the group back to tackle a new round of the evil clown. The film is a celebration of jump scares with humorous aftermaths, solidified by a strong cast of comedic actors. Through frequent flashbacks in-between the main plot, we encounter their younger counterparts again in bittersweet memories.

The film is not for the faint-hearted, but the humour and romance elements make the horror decisively less traumatic to watch. We recommend seeing it with a friend - and bring something to cover your eyes with, in case you're particularly sensitive to gory, bloody details. In the second instalment of It, you're in for a sea of blood, increasing body counts, and more sinister slayings and fear-inducing illusions by a vindictive Pennywise.
