Hello and happy Tuesday. I know it’s still the holidays and we should be thinking about happy stuff and sipping hot chocolate and all that, but today I want to talk to you about the new version of the movie It, based on the novel by Stephen King. Let’s get started, shall we?
I love horror films and I enjoy them a lot. They don’t really scare me as much, but rather make me laugh. “It” was definitely entertaining, but it was a long-ass movie. I went to watch it with my family, and at one point my brother, who was sitting next to me, whispered “I want it to be over already,” and I completely agreed with him.
Now, I said it was entertaining, but not in the “I’m super scared, this is awesome” kind of way. In my opinion, this movie wasn’t really scary, and I know some people say it’s nothing like the original movie, which I’ll have to watch in order to make a fair comparison. From what I saw, it was more funny-scary.
A great deal of the movie’s appeal, to me, were the child actors. They were hilarious, and although I’m a teacher and am always making sure that my students use “appropriate language,” it was impossible for me not to love the fact that they cursed all the time.
I’ve always hated clowns, but I’m not afraid of them, which is why I think I didn’t find “It” really scary or disturbing. If you are scared of clowns, then you’ll probably be traumatized. If not, you’ll experience a few scary bits, but other than that don’t expect much.
My sister had a blast analyzing each character’s back story. Let me tell you, those are deep and dark. I haven’t watched the original movie or read the novel, but I felt there was some representation, taking into account that the story was set in a mostly white town in the U.S.
You know I’m a sucker for soundtracks, and the one from this movie was A+. I think it’s what makes me think about probably watching it again sometime in the distant future. Besides that, I’ve added the novel to my wish list, and be sure that I’ll write a post on it when I read it.
Do you like horror films? If so, what is your favorite one and why? Let me know in the comments!
Love, Miss Camila
