IT Chapter 1 Better Captures Stephen King's Book

Both movies were directed by Andy Muschietti, adapting the twin storylines of Stephen King's novel IT into two separate features. The first IT was something of a surprise hit in , at least in terms of just how good and successful it was, earning rave reviews and becoming the highest-grossing horror movie of all-time. Although the kids do return in flashbacks, they're mostly replaced by a starry adult cast, including James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, and Bill Hader.
They all show that Pennywise the Clown is hidden in one form or another in both IT films, lurking just beyond the shadows. The first hidden appearance we have here of Pennywise is actually his first appearance in the actual movies. This next scene features two hidden shots of Pennywise. Her expression and posture changes in a way that clearly shows Pennywise is taking advantage of her form. Meanwhile, one of the pages of the book also shows a blurred image of Pennywise lurking in the background. He offers Richie a balloon after Richie tells his friends that he has a fear of clowns.
