It Wasn't Scary But Pennywise?...

Share it Please

Movie: It (2017) | Genre: Horror, Drama | Time: 2 hr, 15 mns

So no, no...It was not scary. I think it pretty much stayed true to the original 1990 series with the exception of one major thing. I will get to that thing in a few.

But let's discuss the person or THING that scared the shit out of me during most ALL of the movie. Yep, that would be Pennywise (Uhm, hats off to Bill SkarsgĂ„rd...cause NINJA! You did the damn thang!). I have to hand it to the director of this movie because the scenes with Penny were fucking scary. Scary to the point where I was screaming every time his big ass head (and not in the late night text manner of  'hey big head' either) hit the screen. I gave myself and my mom (who had the unfortunate position of sitting next to me) a headache, lols. There was this one scene where his ass walked out of a film projector and.....

You know what? never mind, if you haven't seen it...I can't talk about it because I can't do flashbacks at this moment. If you saw the movie, then you know what I'm talking about and...yeah....YOU.know. what.I'm.taking.about.

I liked how the characters decided to face their fears to fight back a mudafuga who decides he wants to come back every twenty-seven gahtdamn years and pretty much, scare and kill kids...SMH. But that's what Pennywise was, a evil entity that fed off of fear.

Now to get to what I didn't like. Mainly, I didn't appreciate how they reduced Mike's character in the movie because if you ever watched the original, it was Mike who figured out about the town of Derry and Pennywise. No disrespect to Ben but how ya'll gonna basically give Ben Mike's part? Ya'll pretty much reduced Mikes character to almost nothing and I got's questions. Mainly WhytheAF?!

And like how did Ben get curved throughout the whole damn movie? Ben pretty much saved Beverley's ass and does he gets the glory? Hell no, that goes to his friend Bill, SMDH. But now that I think back to the original movie, it pretty much happened that way too. I like you Bev but really girl? How you gonna do a dude like that? He.SAVED.YOU.GIRL!

All and all, It was pretty damn good and Pennywise was as I said fucking scary. My family won't get me again, I tell you that. Anyway's, go see if you have the vocal chords and yeah, if clowns don't creep you the hell out.

Did I tell ya'll I hate clowns? No? Yeah, I HATE those creepy fuckers...I do.

HEA’s are optional because hell sometimes, Prince Charming really is just a frog. Don’t asked if I finished *that book* yet...because I didn’t.

Find me out here in these eStreets:


  1. You're my hero. I'd never go to a horror story and if I did, I would scream myself hoarse and likely jump and duck so much that I'd hurt my watching neighbor. LOL

    1. lols, idk about being a hero Sophia. I would have left my mom in the theater if something went down, lols. I was that scared.

  2. Yeah....no!! LOL Reading your review is about as close as I am going to get!

  3. Uh...despite having read this book back in the day when I was really into Stephen King, you already know I will save my $12 - $15, girl. This movie is a blockbuster hit though, making Mr. King laugh all the way to the bank. Hugs...RO

    1. lols, I hear ya girl! I think It is no 1 again this week, Stephen is like mo money mo money, lols. It's a good revamp of the original story though so I can see folks wanting to see it despite how scary that damn clown is

  4. lols, I hear ya girl! I think It is no 1 again this week, Stephen is like mo money mo money, lols. It's a good revamp of the original story though so I can see folks wanting to see it despite how scary that damn clown is

  5. I think I might go see this one this week.

    I barely remember the book I read it so long ago so I probably won't even notice the changes.

    I'm curious to see if I get scared because I don't scare easily.

    For What It's Worth

    1. I'm a scary cat and that's the truth, lols.

      hmmmm....don't think I read the book, but the original movie wasn't this damn scary or least the slow wasn't.

  6. Juggalos!!

    Anyway, I want to watch this with my BF but he's a scaredy cat so I guess we'll be waitin for the dvd so he can pause the movie and catch his breath lol

    1. lols! Ya'll gonna have to wait for this sucka to come out on DVD...I should have. And why you wanna do the man like that? lols, tryna give him a heart attack.
