A Simplistic Review: IT Chapter 2

Even after all these years, there’s still a scent of cheesiness to ABC’s version of “Stephen King’s IT.” Aside from the performance of Tim Curry, part two of 1990’s miniseries lacked the overall creepiness of part one and just seemed like a rush job. Luckily you don’t have to worry about “It Chapter II” being rush because this film takes a while…

While staying much closer to the source material, and not being on network TV, this version of “IT” is a nice IMPROVEMENT from what we got almost 30 years ago, including some very good performances, namely Bill Hader, but you also have Jessica Chastain, who just kind of screams a lot.

But hey, albeit a nearly three house runtime, “IT Chapter II” fully realizes what I’m sure Stephen King envisioned when he first finished his 1,000 page epic…an IMPROVEMENT on what we had before.
