IT Chapter Two

Warner Bros. Pictures / YouTube

What we know

Pennywise is back in the sequel to the reboot of IT. This time, the young children are all grown up – but their terrifying nemesis hasn’t gone away, you know.

What the critics say

  • “There is some lively stuff here, including a few sensational cameos and interesting ideas about confronting one’s personal demons, about homophobia, abuse and depression.” – The Guardian
  • “The film’s focus on memory sometimes works to its advantage, reminding us in plentiful flashbacks that what illuminated and elevated its predecessor was the tender, sparkling chemistry of its young cast.” – Vulture
