      For me the scariest scenes in IT part 2 were the ones with real people doing horrible things, like the homophobic kids or Beverly being abused by her husband.

                    This was a great breakdown. Now I understand why a lot of my favorite horror movies were so scary. I thought of the movie Sinister when you showed a clip of a kid flipping through a book of a dead kid in a tree. Sinister used that same recipe of building dread and slowly revealing the monster very well. The end was a little cheesy if I remember right, but the dread you could feel as he kept watching more films and uncovering the truth is very memorable. I still need to see the new It.

                                Anyone who reads 11/22/63 and doesn't think it's literature is absolutely insane. That is a staggering work of literary genius.

                                  The 60s? When there was porn everywhere, even on TV (here in Aus) and women were wearing bikinis on the street and it was the decade of 'free love'?
                                  THAT was the time of suppression of female sexuality?!
                                  Are you freaking kidding me?

                                    there was a lot happening with censorship and politics in the usa at the time and women were the subject of much of it which is why the free love movement began in the sixties, there is a reason it is called counter culture

                                              Stephen King scares his audiences, but this kind of stupid film adaptations don't scare a shit, they are just made to sell tickets to fans of Fast and Furious, Transformers and comic dumb movies.
