Reeled In: “It”
In this week’s mini-episode, Noah and Chance review and rate the new, smash-hit adaptation of Stephen King’s It. While Noah is almost finished with King’s dictionary-sized 1986 novel, Chance came completely cold to this story about an evil force terrorizing small-town kids in the form of a killer clown.
While Noah fills Chance in on the issues director Andrés Muschietti’s adaptation doesn’t touch from the original novel, your hosts also grapple with how to judge horror movies with their rating system. Is it pleasurable to watch Pennywise the Dancing Clown torment the adolescent outcasts who call themselves The Losers’ Club? Let’s dive on in; you’ll float too.
