First, the casting couldn’t be better, characters and their younger selves look shockingly alike. Bill getting his stutter back is brilliant. Richie using humor as a defense mechanism is genius. Skarsgård is irreplaceable and terrifying as Pennywise and every scene he’s in is captivating. The switch between past and present scenes is really smooth and I also loved how intense some scenes were. If you liked the first one, you’ll love this one just as much.
