review

Read It (1986). Saw It (1990). Saw It (2017) on February 1, 2918 and it seemed like Groundhog Day, got the best of me one day earlier, as I could not stay awake after a second brownie bite and discovered today, February 2, 2018, that I was rewinding the same three chapter last night until I gave up and went to sleep. I don’t think it was necessarily the brownie’s fault, the movie was quite slow-going and lackluster.

I think had the moviemakers skipped this remake and gone straight to the sequel planned for 2019: It: Chapter Two, where¬†27 years later, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back [1] and the Loser’s Club learns the origin of Pennywise’s evil. Then the moviemakers could exploit the series like Jason’s creators and regale dullard movie audiences with sequel after sequel of attempts to kill him.

I WASN’T EVEN STARTLED ONCE!
