So yeah.. I finally saw this movie. Obviously I'm pretty late to the party. This movie had already passed it's time of being talked about., But I never saw it in theatres. I make a habbit of avoiding horrors in theatres.. Knowing every 5 Minuten the speakers would blast aggressively in my ears and give me a herz attack.
It wasn't until today that I PVR'd it the night before (in HD of coarse) and I finally got to watch it.. In it's entireity..
I was so afriad that all the hype of this movie. My brother, Windwaker430, and most of the internet would mean when I finally see it. It won't be too good.. Just very over the top, and constant F bombs.
I was wrong.. Like WAY wrong..
It does have the shock value.. But it's not the main focus of the film like I thought. It's Mehr just let Du know how serious this is..
So the film opens up with childrun singing.. I wasn't sure about this. But the futher the film went. This admittedly did become quite unsettling. Well done soundtrack, well done..
So this film has one of the best movie intros of my opinon. Immediately we know just what kind of fucked of movie we are in for. While also deeply frightening at the same time.. I myself don't get scared Von these kinda movies, but I really enjoy them..
I have to say. I'm glad this was PVR'd. Something happens literary every 5 minutes. And other wise I would mis important moments everytime I went to the bathroom oder went up to eat something. This can be a lot to keep up with. Before have time to breath from one scare. Boom, instant new scare.
And boy does this film have some very unique ways to give them.. From Judith (the painting), the Leper, the headless man, to Pennywise himself. There's always something to be found.
And if that's not enough, there's also local luntic, Henry Bowers. Who's idea of entertainment is carving his name onto your stomach. oder shooting stray Katzen just for the hell of it. (speaking of Henry, if they do infact keep in him part 2, how the fuck would he be still alive!?)
Derry is fucked up, even without Pennywise.
The Leper was probably one of my Favorit scenes. For the music.. I always Liebe when Musik has that thump sound.. Plus the roar it does is both scary and cool.. Though in terms of actually scaring me.. I know Judith would be the one haunting my nightmares if I saw this a child.. Even the highly cynical, Doug Walker, admitted to finding Judith frightening.. The smirk probably helped.
I also didn't really hate Bill's dad for saying "George is dead okay!". I felt like it was a realstic reaction.
Guess I should go into negatives.
Most of them are how I Frage "why would these kids hang with Eddie" at certain points.. As he sometimeshe seemed like that annoyng kid that never shuts the hell up, whenever he ranted about germs oder whatever..
oder that the "beep beep Richie" didn't really make sense in this verison.. But both of those are just small nitpicks that didn't ruin my insgesamt expirence..
10/10.. Highest grade..
