The film opens by throwing incredibly frightening statistics out at us. We’re told that in Mexico, since 2006 which was when the ‘war on drugs’ began, 160,000 people have been killed and that 53,000 have ‘disappeared.’ And those numbers don’t include the children!
‘It Chapter Two’ will both please and displease its fans. If you noticed the run time, that’s the disappointing part. I’ll get to that in a minute. Read more

I must confess that I have never read the books this film is based on. That being said, I was still looking very forward to seeing this movie. The reason? A documentary about the books and their author, Alvin Schwartz, was released and I watched and reviewed it. I found the subjects of that documentary to be quite fascinating. Afterward, I couldn’t wait to see what the movie had in store for us. I was hoping it would stay especially true to the sketches of the monsters Schwartz’ illustrator, Stephen Gammell, came up with to kickstart his reader’s imaginations. I’m happy to say… they most definitely did.
