A Good Start Before Going with Overuse of Jump scares and Poor Direction

It Based on the novel from stephen king whose novel have terrifed readers for decades comes a version that has more whys then answers the film has a good start starting with the way the novel opens up but misses the mark with adding humor in places it doesnt belong or wanted but then slowly pacing through out the film it has one Jumpscare After another each ending Almost the same way each time and the look of pennywise shows danger where george is afraid of him and still tries to take his boat anywhay be fore Biting his arm off and dragging him into the sewers' the film has its own use of 1980s direction that was only for the 80s and its tone is rather inconsistent and the characters changed from what they were in the book and only covering the first half of the novel focusing on the children and rather focus on building fear and suspense together it lacks both rather then using suspense and tension to build fear it just uses one jump scare after another becoming a bore as the film goes on by the end you would wanted a better and expected a better movie then this film has has offered been and its ending was a letdown

Great film, but not for kids under 13

I recommend this film to everyone who loves slightly disturbing films and TV shows like me but for anyone under the age of 13 you really should not watch it. It's very gory and contains adult language. Psychologically any kid that isn't a teen (13+) would find this film frighting even if the child says it was fine or the trailer doesn't scare me or even if they've seen clips of the film because if you watch the whole film and the whole story put together they are not going to find it appealing. The reason why it's okay for a 13 year old and up is because if you put it next to other scary films it's not very scary and it also depends on the child whether they are mature enough to realise that it is not real. Overall you should not let a 12 year old watch this unless you're absolutely sure your child will be fine with it but anywhere over 12 you're fine to watch it if you would like, but ask you're parent first, it's not my decision.

It is the best!!!

It is a great movie but people always say about how ‘terrifying’ it is, but I dont see it neither does my cousin when she saw it we both agree that it’s not scary in the slightest but there is a lot of swearing and quite a bit of blood including a boy stabbing his father in the neck with a knife and the f word a lot of the time and some teenage kids abusing a kid and another kid getting abused by there father but overall it’s an epic movie!!!

A highly engaging and entertaining thriller based on Stephen Kings classic monster novel about an interdimensional, shapeshifting, killer clown. Predictable CGI-jerky jump scares and strong language is accompanied with some blood and mild gore sprinkled throughout.
