Our Score
It's alive! With this satisfying conclusion to the highest-grossing horror movie of all time, It director Andy Muschietti returns to the Stephen King territory he mined so well in 2017, providing a follow-up that once more insidiously frightens. Twenty-seven years after the Losers' Club defeated Pennywise the clown (Bill Skarsgård), the now adult friends (played by Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy and Bill Hader among others) reunite to vanquish the monster once and for all. Clocking in at an impressive 169 minutes, It: Chapter Two is the longest-ever horror movie, yet it remains a captivating, character-driven chiller, fraught with an indefinable otherworldliness and an arresting sense of grim, grand poetry. Although the manner in which Pennywise meets his comeuppance is a little underwhelming, Muschietti's knack for layered suspense and effective scares mean this could very well be the ultimate adaptation of a Stephen King novel.
