While the rest travel to Derry together with their sense of dread and only hazy memories, Stan cut his wrists in the bathtub after taking the call. These Losers teams meet for dinner in a Chinese restaurant, wherein Mike refreshes everyone’s memories while they’re tormented by their hallucinations and discovered of Stan’s death. Eddie and Richie settle to depart until Beverly revealed that since she had exposed to the “It’s Deadlights, she had been encountering visions of their loss should they fail or leave the town without accomplishing their promise.

The Writers View
It has been a while ever since the first movie was initially released. The movie drags on at the core by dividing up their crew and subjecting everybody to jump scares. It means small character interaction (that is part of the initial film had going for it. By the moment you get into the last confrontation with the Pennywise, you are just so tired of those jump scares and wanted it to be over just because you are not really searching for the losers. It is mostly due to what has been established in the primary film.
The film started off great. In some way, the scenario at the bridge controls to match that iconic opening scene from the first one. Skarsgård is still an astonishing Pennywise and is scary as hell. The speech of Stan in Richie’s next flashback is just great and really funny. The casting is, in the most part, was just really good. However, IT has been just hard for most of their adult actors to locate for the balance in between being recognized while still flashing how they have matured as time goes on. The adult Richie is just too kid-like whereas Bev is really mature enough to that certainty of being unrecognized.
