| Better for Younger
For a younger audience, unjaded by so many horror and suspense flicks, this movie will probably be creepier. This version of the story is somewhat a victim of itself. So many derivatives have occurred over the years, many from King novels, including this one, that this remake suffers as somewhat less of the same. At my 55 years of age, it just never hit a fear climax. Sure, some great scenes, just not enough impact. For the younger audience, I expect it would be great. Also, perhaps by the edit- down for the screen play, the story seemed to leave a lot of plot holes uncompleted, and seemed to violate its own plane of existence. Appropriate for Netflix, or a young couple on a date.

Trivia

Warner Bros. started an Oscar campaign in November of 2017, a few months after the release and subsequent success of the film. The categories include Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress for Sophia Lillis, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, Best Film Editing, Best Costume Design, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, and Best Original Score. Concerning the Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor categories, it wasn't speculated if any of the seven main actors, Jack Dylan Grazer, Jaeden Martell, Chosen Jacobs, Wyatt Oleff, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Finn Wolfhard, and Bill Skarsgård would be campaigned for those categories. Unfortunately, the film failed to receive a single nomination.
