Genre: Adventure, Drama, Horror
This looked fabulous from the trailers and when I finally got to see it, the film certainly did not disappoint 😛 . The narrative is amazing and captivating from the beginning to the end. The beginning scene is very good for a horror film without being over the top with the “gore”. It had a perfect balance of scariness and an intriguing storyline plus after seeing the first clip it gives you a hint of how the rest of the movie will follow. Bill Skarsgård as the clown Pennywise was fantastic 😀 !! He looked creepy and terrifying while his outfit looked amazing 🙂 . The overall visual aesthetics of the film is quite memorable especially its use of the colours such as Georgie’s yellow coat and the red balloon 🙂 . Georgie (Jackson Robert Scott) was an adorable actor in this and the overall lead children were good. I liked them all but some I preferred more such as Eddie (Jack Dylan Grazer) and Beverly (Sophia Lillis) 🙂 .Their relationships (the entire group of friends) were sweet and this made us like them more. This movie had some great scary scenes such as Pennywise in the basement (in the water) and the projector plus the graphics in this film are fantastic 🙂 . What I loved in this film was the discovery the children found as the movie continued and I never knew who would be killed next 😛 . However, the only downside I would say was that this film did not terrify me. I think I was more afraid for the characters rather than the movie being scary. This film is certainly worth the watch and I cannot wait to see what Part 2 will bring 😀 . Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
